Names of the seven dwarfs in various languages

The story "Snow White" was collected by the Brothers Grimm in 1812. The original German version of the tale was entitled Sneewittchen, which is Schneewittchen in modern orthography.

The dwarfs who appear in the story were first given individual names in the 1912 Broadway show, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and they acquired different names in the 1937 Disney film by the same name. In other versions of the story they also have different names. The English names shown here are the ones used in the 1937 Disney film. See Wikipedia for other names.

This page was suggested by Marcello Gianola, who also supplied some of the names.
