I like their names just the way they are as well. And I know this is a bit off topic but I love your name on here: "The Dark Knight." If that's a reference to that Batman movie, it was amazing!

Ahem...carry on. :P :geek:

I had a VERY hard time with the name Renesmee when I first heard it. All I could think was really? You couldn't just use a real name? It seems to be stuck to her in my mind -- though I only ever think of or type to her as Nessie because her full name is kind of a PITA.

I love love LOVE the name Esme. I love soft, old-fashioned names. And it seems so motherly! The only other name I can think of for Esme would be Linda (not very exciting, I know) but only because I knew tons of mothers named Linda when I was growing up.

Carlisle... another freaking great name. Something regal maybe-- Richard? Bleh. Maybe not.

Rosalie's name is showy, just like her.

I refuse to even think about another name for Edward. Not "Ed" or "Eddie." As SM said, SO MANY of the best romantic heroes are Edward.

Now I need to go read some Austen. SIGH!

I thought it was Arrr-oh, that's the Maori way of saying it, like Aro Valley...


When I listened to the audiobooks it was pronounced Arr (like a pirate) - oh (like oh my!). Is that what you meant by Are-row? I don't know if that means it's correct, but it does mean that's how I hear it in my head. :)

really? I pronounced it Air-o lol now that i look at it it looks like some bad air freshner name!!! Tee-hee :lol:

First of all, I was under the impression that they only changed their last names. I really think their names suit each of them just right, so tried to do that again by choosing names that are not too different. I thought long and hard about these names, so here goes:

Rosalie/Rebecca
Emmett/Bradley
Bella/Maribella
Edward/Elliott
Alice/Alissa
Jasper/Spencer
Esme/Molly
Carlisle/Phillip
Renesmee/Vanessa
Jacob/Nathan

But thats just me

Here's what I've been wondering: SM is willing to nickname Jasper Jazz but not Edward Eddie?? Hmmm....well anyways if I had it my way, all the characters would have weird medieval names such as:
Bella:Isadora
Edward:Evan or Ivan--I recently read a book where Evan is the main male characters name and he's like totally protective of his true love and all that which reminded me of Edward
Renesmee:Danilla (Dani for short)--just made up this name and thought it would be nice for her
Alice:Myramond(pronounced Mee-ra-mond)--seems kind of light-hearted and graceful to me
Rosalie:Nikolina or Nikola--Nikolina is actually one of my friends names but I thought it might fit Rosalie's stand-offish personality
Jasper:Gavin--sometimes I don't even know my own brain well enought to come up for a reason for that one
Emmet:Dillon--once again who knows
Carlisle:Edin--my dad's name :)
Esme:Estelle--seems to fit almost as well as Esme to me because it sounds soft and gentle
Jacob:I seriously can't think of another name for Jacob

I thought about it again, and I think this way now:
I really love those names, except from Nicole and Tyrone, but that just fit with the characters.

Rosalie- Nicole, because it's beautiful and bitchy
Emmett- Nate, because it's a strong name
Bella- Shaira, because the word 'shy' is in it and I think it suits Bella.
Edward- Julius or Jules, because I love that name!
Alice- Hayley, I really love that name, or Faye because they are both so lovely
Jasper- Antoine, because it is cute but also very moody
Esme- Joya, I like the name and she's always so happy and full of joy
Carlisle- Ischa or Aisley, because they are so...calm and reassuring
Renesmee- Aurora, because it is hard to pronounce, as Renesmee is
Jacob- Tyrone, because I don't love the name, but I think it suits, because the word 'tyran' is in it and if he's mad, he changes in a wolf. So it suits, and I don't like Jacob either, so, Tyrone is nice!

I also like Shaylin, Yasmine, Rose, Layla/Laila and Luna. And for boys I also love Roman, Jay/Jason and Kyle.
Damon and Elena, there is definetly love between them.

I think Edward would make a nice Jason. I think it has the right ring to it.
