The Neverending Story

We were having a discussion here at work about the movie The Neverending Story. At the end of the movie, Bastian is supposed to give the Princess a name before the world is destroyed. I was fully convinced as a kid whenever I would watch this movie that he gave her the name "Mosiah" which I thought was odd, given that the only other time I had heard that name was in the Book Of Mormon. The name Mosiah were names of a grandfather and grandson, respectively, and both served as king of the Nephites at Zarahemla.

Turns out I was wrong, after doing a quick Google search, the name Bastian gave to the Princess was "Moonchild". Which ultimately sounds better than Mosiah.

I thought it was Mosiah too! We would rewind it and try to figure it out.

no way! I thought it was Mariah. Mosiah is like, totally a boys name and he was naming a princess y'all. and princesses are divas and what name is more diva-ish than mariah? i am disturbed to know it was moonchild. he so doesn't say that.

that is good to know i will finally sleep tonight, thanks for looking that up. my family could never decide what he said so we decided that he does not really say one name that it is just nonsense and each child watching the movie should fill in the name they want. i like moonchild better.
