Twilight Names from the Twilight Saga

User Rating: / 25

The worldwide popularity of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga has brought a slew of unusual names to the forefront while also reinvigorating the appreciation of names that, for one reason or another, might have dropped out of fashion. Listed below are a selection of main character names from Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Be forewarned, some of the names come with brief character descriptions – so if you haven’t read the books, there are spoilers ahead!
