What Does Your Twilight Baby Name Mean?
Parents have been naming their babies after celebrities for ages, so itâs no surprise that Twilight characters have topped the new baby name list.
According to the Social Security Administration’s annual list of most popular baby names, the name Isabella replaced Emma in the number one spot for most popular girl’s names. Shock shock. As for the number one boy name, itâs not Edward, itâs Jacob. But for the record, Jacob has been the number one boy name for the past eleven years. One name that is climbing the ranks though is Cullen (Edwards last name).
If you are considering naming your child after a Twilight character, or even your dog (“bad Edward, no biting, BAD”) then you may want to give the name meanings a look.
Isabella: This name has been used for centuries in many countries, it means âmy God is a vowâ or âconsecrated to God.â The shortened version, Bella, means âbeautiful.â
Edward: Means âappointed to protect.â Ahaha how perfect.
Cullen: The vampire’s last name means “chieftain.”
Jacob: This name means âSupplanter, held by the heelâ because in the Bible, Jacob (later called Israel) was born holding his twin brother Esau’s heel.
Rosalie: This one is easy to figure out, it means ârose.â
Alice: Means âone of integrityâ or ânoble kind, of the noble sort.â
Emmett: This one means âall-containing, universal, strength.â The strength part works well for this character.
Jasper: This name means âtreasure holderâ or âspotted stone.â Haha.
Carlisle: This one means âbraveâ or simply, âfrom the Isle of Carl.â
Esme: Means “esteemed” or “loved” in Old French.
James: Another name that means âsupplanter.â
Victoria: Means âconqueror.â
Laurent: Simply means âman from Laurentum.â Laurentum was a city in ancient Italy.
Jane: Means âGod is gracious.â
Aro: A Finnish name that means âinfertile groundâ or âswampy area.â
Caius: Means ârejoice.â
Marcus: Means âfrom the god Mars.â
If youâre interested in looking up more names I suggest using more than one book/website, since they donât always share the same definition.
