  1. that's funny - I wonder if it's at all Twilight-related though: those names were, after all, taken from SM's own family (brother and non-existing daughter), so her family might just have reflected the nation-wide trend...

    Edward is the only name she didn't take from someone she knew (she purposefully chose a 'weid', old-fashioned name), and it's the only one not on there. Makes sense. (I'm not even discussing Renesmee. Stupid, stupid name, and I'm not sure I can forgive SM for it!)

    Finally - where are the Roberts?!!

  2. Ever since the Twilight series I have to admit: I too have been contemplating the name Jacob for future usage :)

  3. And I love how versatile Isabella is.
    You can nickname her Isa, Bella, or Bells.
    Great name.

  4. Actually, Jacob has always been my favorite boy name. And Sebastian.

    And if Renesmee was on that freaking list I would have gone crazy... lol.

  5. @Anonymous - I completely, whole heartedly agree with you. :( What was she thinking??? humm...

    @JJ - Jacob is a great name. :)
    I wish Renesmee was on the list... truly only to get an extremely hard laugh out of it. Would that be borderline child abuse?

  6. I love all the Twilight charry's names but I know an Edward, he's my grandpie, and a lot of them are really old fashioned, it's a good thing I like old fashion, anbd beside's for me, it would be weird to have a crush on a fiction charry with the same name as my grandpie.
