Comment by Lindy Rosa Bella on July 29, 2010 at 2:55pm
They all fit!!! Lol. The meanings all fit. it's amazing. And Renesmee's meaning definitely has a ring of truth to it. "reborn and loved". I always thought of Renesmee as a little piece of Bella as a human to remind Edward and Bella, ya know? It's like Bella's humanity was never really lost. I really think that that name is officially a new name now.
And I always knew that the name Robert meant fame. I laughed when I figured that one out!!! Kristen's name fits her quite well, too. She is a Christian.
