‘Author Stephenie Meyer reveals how she decided on the names of her title characters and other groups in her ‘Twilight’ saga!

For Twi-hards thinking that the names Isabella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) were randomly selected by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer think again — they both have a huge resonance in her life!

Now Magazine reports that for her dashing vampire lead, Stephenie wanted a traditional and romantic name and came up with Edward. “Edward was a perfect choice as it belongs to two great literary romantic heroes, Mr. Rochester in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and Mr. Ferrars in Jane Austen’s Sense And Sensibility.”

As for Isabella, Stephenie felt she loved the character like a daughter and decided to give her the name she had been saving for her own daughter, as Stephenie has 3 sons.

The Volturri are named after the latin word for vulture, a nod to the fact that unlike the Cullen family, this group feeds on humans.

What do you think about the meaning behind some of these Twilight names HollywoodLifers?
