Stephenie Meyer Doesn’t Want You To Name Your Kid “Renesmee”
“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!”
