Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, is irked by parents who are naming their children after her characters.

“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,” Stephenie told Entertainment Weekly.

“But in fantasy, you can name your characters anything you want. I could’ve named their child Lindsay. I could’ve named her anything that already exists — it would have felt wrong. I had to pick a name that I felt was completely and totally unique, which opens you up to heckling. Which I’ve taken, I take all my heckling, and I totally get it!”
