On babynames.com they now have a listing of all the names in the Twilight book series!

I'm going through the list and writing the ones I love down! You'd be surprised to see how many of OUR names are used in the books!

I'll be adding them to my baby name list, and then I'll add it to my siggy!

Just thought I'd let you know! :D

Cool, im gonna check it out. Thanks for sharing :smile:

:lol: That's hilarious!!! The sad part is, two of my name choices are prominent in the books; but that's not why I liked them!! However if I use them, I'm afraid they'll be associated w/ the stupid Twilight series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <_<

Don't get me wrong, I loved the books, thought they were GREAT; but that's not why I want to use the names for my kiddo. :lol:

The only name I'd seriously consider using from that series is Carlisle. I'm a huge fan of old-fashioned names. But DH thinks it's too "pansy" a name. :rolleyes:

Danielley08 September 25th, 2008 09:25 AM

I really liked Corin for a boy name...(we are sticking with Kennedy for a girl)...but DH thinks it sounds to girly because his little sisters middle name is Corinna...

Dang it...

Which names were you wanting to use? Depending on which ones they may be pretty popular without the help of Twilight... :)

And Britt I LOVE Carlisle...but we can't use that one either because we have friends with that as their last name...

Dang it again...

:lol:

..Jessica.. September 25th, 2008 09:34 AM

I added these names to my list:

Emmett
Embry
Quinton
Felix
Tyler

Well, Isabella has been my BIG front-runner for ages. But we'd call her Ella; I used to teach swim lessons at a local YMCA. My favorites were the "Mommy and Me" classes! Well, I had an Ella, and just loved the name, but I decided that I'd want to use Isabella so she could have more name choices later in life than just Ella. Mine is Jennifer, and I was Jenny during my childhood; but quite using that when I would meet new people as I got older. I go by Jen or Jennifer, and I HATE Jenny as it makes me feel like I'm still 12. :lol:

The second name is Esmee. Not taken from the book though, I was going through a name book and came across it. It's French and means "much beloved" which I've joked periodically about how very much this little one was wanted and the legnths that I've gone to and through to get her. So she is DEFINITELY "much beloved!"

So those were my choices. :lol:

..Jessica.. September 25th, 2008 12:10 PM

I still think Isabella is perfect for your baby, Jen! :wub:

That too. Some of DH's cousins' last name is Carlile (they dropped the s). :rolleyes: That was the first reason he said against it.

Danielley08 September 25th, 2008 12:24 PM

Isabella was definately pretty popular prior to Twilight making it big....Esmee on the other hand...I think anytime anyone hears that name they will think of the books...

Either way I think both would be beautiful...and who cares if she is named after Twilight...by the time our kids are grown those books are going to be classics (as is Harry Potter :D )

Brittanie September 25th, 2008 12:30 PM

Am I the only one here who isn't all that impressed with the Twilight series? I mean, I read them all, but I'm glad I didn't buy any of them.

..Jessica.. September 25th, 2008 12:32 PM

I haven't read them, so I can't comment. I'm so interested in buying the books though! Maybe I'll ask my mommy to get me them for Christmas! :santawalk:

Danielley08 September 25th, 2008 12:36 PM

I think you def have to enjoy YA urban fantasy to truly enjoy the books...Stephenie Meyer just has a talent of sucking you in and making you want to know more...even now that the final book has been written I want more of the story...

I was pretty heartbroken when she announced she was putting Midnight Sun on indefinite hold :( the first 12 chapters were awesome and to read them and compare to Twilight it really helped me understand Edward alot more...

Another great series is the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare...City of Bones and City of Ashes...City of Glass will be out in March '09...they are teenage *shadowhunters* (demon hunters) that grow up in New York...it has vampires and werewolves and what not and it has a much deeper storyline...(its also written in 3rd person POV so you get an idea of what all the diff characters are like)...

Wow...SORRY for taking over your topic Jess! Once I get on my bookwork shpeel I can't stop!!! :D

Oh I do! Don't get me wrong. I just don't think that the twilight books were that well written. Yes, they sucked me in. Why? Because I liked Jacob, and had to find out what was happening with him. Bella just annoyed the crap out of me. I spent all my time reading that series wondering why I was reading it. I think the only emotional reaction from her I accepted as "real" was in the last book, when she wouldn't let Edward and Carlisle "fix" her problem (not getting any more specific than that for Jess's sake). But then, I still sort of detest her. I'll end here....if you want to read my critique/rant of the series after finishing Breaking Dawn, you can read my blog entry (here)

Okay, I'm done. (((I just have to add, that I loved Stephenie Meyer's other book "The Host." It's labelled for adults, rather than YA, and I think she "tried harder" in the writing. I'm just disappointed she didn't give that much attention to Twilight)))

..Jessica.. September 25th, 2008 03:28 PM

Stop talking about the darn books! I wanna read them and you're giving me too much! :lol:

Brittanie September 25th, 2008 03:51 PM

Sorry! Do you have a library nearby? That's now I read them all, I checked them out from the library.

..Jessica.. September 25th, 2008 03:54 PM

I think there's one nearby...I'm not sure though! :lol:

Pitridge September 25th, 2008 04:00 PM

WOW, I must be the only that have never heard of this............. :blink:

There's even a movie coming out in November. LOL! I'm really not liking who they cast to play the male lead though.


Man am I being negative in this thread or what? =

Pat, here's the wikipedia article on the series for you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twilight_(book)
