English[edit]

The Walt Disney Studios, the headquarters of The Walt Disney Company.

Etymology[edit]

From Old French de (of, from) + Isigny (a place in Calvados). The place name is from the Germanic personal name *Iso, combined with the Gaulish suffix -iacon, Latinized as -iniacu(m). In modern use, it is also derived from the name of Walt Disney, whose surname has the aforementioned origin.
