- I spent a good long while wishing it could be a name. I never dreamed that it'd become a name or be popular.
Names I wish I could use:Jacob
- I have a feeling it'd be in the top 3 despite the books.Sophia
- Such a pretty name. I am so sad about how popular it is!Isabel
- I was very, very fond of this name a few months before Twilight came out. Unfortunately, I am so biased that now I can't tell if I like it. I just find "Belle
" to be such an endearing nickname.
