No, not from Twilight

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My daughters middle name will be Alice. It is after my great grandma (her middle name was Alice, first was Flora, which DH and I do not like).
Anyways, people automatically assume that because I am a Twilight fan that it comes from there and I've gotten so much hell for it.
I don't understand why people blow a name, that has been around since WAY before Twilight was written, out of proportion. It's not like I'm using Renesmee.

People are ridiculous. If our next child is a girl DH wants to name her Isabella, not from twilight, as he's never seen any of the movies, just because he's always liked the name. But im hesitant because I know that's exactly what stupid people are going to assume.

Oops. I read "she's *the* main character.." Not "she's *a* main character" my bad!


Quoting Anonymous:

She is still a major character in the story.

And I know she is another vampire.

My sons name is Cullen...


Both DH and I never read or saw any of the Twilight series. I wanted the name Calum and DH didn't want him to be called Cal so we picked another name.

Now my other son is named after a movie.

We were going to use Alice, after Resident Evil, but once someone asked if it was from Twilight, we nixed it. I don't want to have connections with that crap.

No offense to fans of the story, honestly. That's just my opinion.

We instead accidentally used a name from Harry Potter that I forgot about, but came up with before the character was introduced.
