Twilight baby names–ridiculous or…really ridiculous?
Stephanie Meyer has some strong words for people who are naming their daughters after a fictional character in her Twilight triology. Upon learning that Renesmee has become a popular baby name among fans, the author says, “That really disturbs me. I am someone who strongly believes in reality, and that you don’t monkey around with people’s names. Whether they become a stripper or a lawyer has a large part to do with the name you give them. I would never name a real child Renesmee. But in fantasy, you can name your characters anything you want. I couldn’t have named [Bella and Edward's] child Lindsay.”
What do you think of Stephanie Meyer’s comments?

I actually like the name Renesmee. It’s unique and cool. I don’t understand what she’s saying .. It’s not like your giving the child a granny name like “Maureen.”

She is right about it affecting the jobs you’ll be able to get in the future. There have been studies done on it.

I think what she meant is it can affect your chances of getting the job you want. if a chick named shenaynay went up into a high class attorney office trying to get a job, even if she has the credentials/degree most likely they’re gonna skip her for someone else even if the person they choose isnt as great a choice.

@alexiswashere…the flaw in your logic is that Stephanie Meyer didn’t invent any of those names herself. If you meet someone on the street named Jacob and you say, “OMG, you were named after a Twilight character”, you look like an idiot because Jacob was a common name before Twilight. If you meet someone named Renesmee and you say, “OMG, you were named after a Twilight character”, then it would be the truth. On the other hand, Stephanie Meyer is a little bit of an idiot. I’d like to see the source she found that links any one person’s name to the career path they chose.

she said she BELIEVES in reality. everyone has imagination. just cause you believe in something doesn’t mean you can’t wright about fiction. you can be a christian and make stories about greek mythology or something

It’s just a name as really your parent choice. And what does a stripper had to do with it. Many people have it hard these days. I’m not saying I’m with stripping I’m trying to say a name doesn’t choice your life your choices does. If a person wants to name their daughter Renesmee then let them. It’s a beautiful name like any other name.
