Moana or Vaiana

The Disney movie Moana (2016) was released under the name Vaiana in some countries for specifically different reasons - In the country Netherlands, the name ‘Moana’ is a registered trademark, and In the country Italy, the name wasn't seen as a proper title for the movie, because Moana is the name of a famous Italian adult film actress.
