Mickey Mouse originally was not going to be named Mickey. After the loss of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt began sketching his most well known creation. When he first showed the drawings to his wife, Lillian, he told her his name was Mortimer. Lillian didn't like the name and said something to the effect of "He looks more like a Mickey." Thanks to her, Mickey Mouse is the most lovable mouse on the planet.
