Good Point guys she could probably spell her name but like being a normal kid like me I have a long name and it was like impossible to spell in Kindergarten.

OMJ Narnia! I watch Arthur every morning! And I'm 18! But it brings back the good ol' elementary days. Remember Alowicious Zimmerplotz? Haha!

Hi-5, Umbrella! Poor kid couldn't even fit his name on a sheet of paper. He wishes his name was something as simple as Renesmee.

I like Henry, but then I think of Vera's little boy.

Everyone has some good suggestions for names. I like how some people reflected it off of people they know.

I don't think I could change anyones name. When I first read Twilight, I loved all the Cullens names because they really helped with realizing they were born in different times. For instance, Edward was born in the early 20th century. Edward is just so perfect to reflect that.

I've always loved the name Isabelle/Isabella. I think Bella is perfect. And I love the name Renesmee too. Just like the other Cullen's names, it's unique to her time. She's also very unique herself by being a rare vampire-human hybrid, so the name is great.

As far as pronunciation goes, I always thought Carlisle's name was pronounced as isle at the end (it has something to do with trying to pronounce island in second grade, haha). For some reason I already knew Esme was pronounced Es-may (I swear I've heard it somewhere before). And Renesmee is sounded out for you in Breaking Dawn =)

I love the name Carlisle.
You say it as Car-l-isle right?
I had problems with this name in the beginning, we don't use "isle" in our language.
But I love it! And I like Esme and Rosalie (espacially Rose, love THAT name) too.
Damon and Elena, there is definetly love between them.

I love Rosalie's name, I think it suits her perfectly.

The best way I can think to describe how to pronounce Carlisle's name is car-lie-uhl.

I can see one of the Cullen boys being an Andrew.

Edit: Here's the pronunciation for Carlisle:

I love the name Andrew. Maybe Carlisle or Jasper could have this name.

I like Andrew and I think Emmett could be an Aaron. I don't know I was just reading some of the first posts and I totally agree with something someone said on one the first posts on this thread that is Esme = Charlotte also this I just thought of Bella=Emma

I agree with all the people who said that it'sreally hard to rename Edward, but if I did, I think I would name him Michael. Why? I like the name, and also, Michael the angel is a guardian angel. Edward is Bella's guardian angel, so it fits. And Michael is kind of an old-fashioned name, so long as you don't call him Mike.

But then you have to rename Mike. I think I would name him Richard or Daniel (with Richie or Dan/Danny for short).

I LOVE most of the other names. I could sorta see Esme as a Helen though, I don't know why.
