Twilight: Breaking Dawn inspired baby names

You may not be having vampire babies, but “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” is certainly inspiring plenty of human baby names.

Besides Renesmee, the half-vampire/half-human baby of Edward and Bella, coming into vogue as a baby name, a number of Twilight characters are providing inspiration when it comes to selecting a pop culture baby moniker.

Case in point, the Social Security Administration’s most popular baby names include Jacob and Isabella.

Be on the lookout for Cullen (Edward’s family’s last name), as well as Jasper and Emmett, growing in popularity.

SheKnows Parenting has rounded up vampire and werewolf names from the Twilight Saga to help you find your perfect Twilight baby name!

Names include Edward, Jasper, Emmett, Rosalie, Alice, Carlisle, Jacob, Sam, Quil and more.

Check out the full list of Twilight baby names at SheKnows Parenting.

    Well I have to say I didn’t name my son Jacob after the Twilight Series but he loves to wear his older sisters shirt that says Team Jacob. He gets a real hoot out of everyone wearing his name on t-shirts because as far as he’s concerned they’re all rooting for him.

    NOT happy about this! I named my son Jasper 4.5 years ago- back then most people hadn’t heard of Twilight- myself included and now it’s definitely becoming more popular! Not what I wanted for my son’s name but nothing I can do about it (obviously!)

    Don’t you think it’s just that the author has the same tastes as everyone who is naming babies. Perhaps she was a bit ahead of the this trending curve. Most parents tend to be more conservative while writers can easily be more creative and take a name like Alice make it fresh.

    But I doubt many people are going to use the name Quil. I know tons of Bella’s, Eddies, Sams, and a few Emmetts and one Alice. Jacob has been leading the boy’s list for years and years. I also know several Henrys, Roses, Violets and many other traditional sounding names that were previously unpopular and now are bit hits with current parents.

    It has been said that what people name their pets precedes baby names in popularity (if you cut out the Fido and Spots). Makes sense to me. I know dozens of aging dogs named Bella.

    just out of curiosity – HP is globally more popular and infinitely better; so why didn’t Hermione ever become a popular name?

    My newest boy’s middle name is Edward, after my grandfather who passed away in 1991. Everyone thinks I named him after the stupid vampire character. Ugh.
