Postby Cocoa » Fri Feb 06, 2009 3:55 pm

There are times when the Cullens have to take on new identites. What new names would you give them and why.

Ooo. Neato; hm...

Well, I always thought Jacob would make a good Eli. I don't know why.
I like the name Esme but her personality always reminded me of a Charlotte.

I don't know why these sort of things pop into my head. But it comes in handy to make up code names for the characters. When my friends and I talk TW around "non-believers" we don't look so weird because they don't recognize the names.

We now have Team Eli and Team Charles. :lol:

I wouldn't re-name them, I like there names just the way they are...
One word says it all: Twilight

Team Edward - because who really needs a headboard?! ♥

Me without Twilight is like Bella without Edward, and we all know how that played out!

So when I first read Twilight I couldn't really see Bella as a Bella. But after a while I got used to it, and now I can't imagine her having another name. Though I wish Jasper's name would be different still, because Jasper is one of the dog catchers on 101 Dalmations. He should be William or something.

I can see Alice being a Clarissa. I think they might avoid taking names of vampires they know, which would narrow down the choices quite a bit.

I would think that they would always keep the same first names and just change their last names as needed. I remember Edward saying that he was glad that his name fell out of favor with parents.
Like others, I can't imagine them with any other names. To think of Rosalie as Carol just doesn't fit, I am glad that SM decided to change it.

Definitely a smart move to change Carol, Carol just reminds me of the Brady Bunch and Christmas.

Do you think they rotate last names, or just alternate between generic names and the ones they were born with?

OK I am glad this thread exists because I just wanted to say:

I think Renesmee is the silliest name ever. I mean noone can pronounce it, it doesnt roll off the tongue...in fact people call her nessie because its easier to pronounce instead. Its like if you named me JackDavid (as first name).

SO I think that a good first name for her would be...anything normal! Here are a few hints:

Chloe
Crystal
Sharon
Nessie
Alice Part 2 (lol jk)

I like the names that they have and I really couldn't imagine them as anything else. Rosalie as Carol or Jasper as Ronald. I shudder at the thought. Their names suit them.
