I feel the exact same way. Edward and Bella...and that's it! lol

I think she just got Quil off of Quileute.
rofl :lol: That was awesome. There you go, making me laugh again!

I assumed Quil was derived from Quileute too.

I have a friend that would do that, too. And she would pronounce Leah like Lee.
Yeah, it's very logical to take Quil from Quileute.
I agree that the most of the names can not be changed.

*strokes imaginary evil beard* Rename them, you say?

Edward -- I can't! *whines* But if I had to it would be, uh, Cedric. No kidding. Logan. Why? Because that's Wolverine's name and he thinks he's a bad guy too, but he's all lovable. Hee hee.

Bella -- I still can't get into the name. I mean I like Isabella. I think I'd have renamed her Rachel.

Renesemee -- I'm sticking with my Remée that I suggested once in the EC -- bringing sexy back forum.

Jacob -- Hunter. Because he's Native American and doesn't have a very native name. Plus it's kind of a double entendre. He hunts vamps.

Emmett -- Adam. Emmett's into bears, which reminds me of Grizzly Adams. Hence, Adam.

^^^Ooohh... I love the name Logan, but I would probably give it to Jasper b/c I refuse to even think about re-naming Edward. And I like Logan b/c of Veronica Mars.

And Rachel is a great alt name for Bella. I always picture a subtly beautiful brunette when I think of the name Rachel. Not sure why.

Oh, I loved your ideas! I love Logan! It's a good name. I didn't like Remée much, but I'm not fan of mixing names like that. It's simply weird. I thought Bella would name her daughter after some Jane Austen heroine, like Elizabeth, Emma, Catherine.

I'm sorta old-school. I was like 6 when it was on, but I remember it!
I don't think I could do Clarissa for Alice though...probably because I don't like the name.

Lunna -- I'm not a fan of combining names either, it was just a discussion we had in EC about how to have made the name better. If I had been Bella, I'd have probably named my daughter after Edward's birth mother. But that was me...

Jasper<3 -- ME too! *dies* (Plus, Hugh Jackman is completely hot as Wolverine!) And lmbo@Logs. Yeah, I mean I can't imagine Edward as anyone but Edward, but eh, why not give him a "superhero" to help with his "What if I'm not a superhero? What if I'm the bad guy?" complex.
