The meaning behind Edward & Bella’s names in ‘Twilight'

Edward Cullen
While trying to choose a name for 
the dashing ‘veggie' vampire, author Stephenie Meyer was looking for something traditional and romantic.

Edward was a perfect choice as it belongs to two great literary romantic heroes, Mr Rochester in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre and Mr Ferrars in Jane Austen's Sense And Sensibility.

Isabella Swan
After Stephenie had finished writing about Bella's journey, she felt she loved her much like a daughter.

So when the time came to name her lead character, what could have been more fitting than the name she'd saved for 
a daughter of her own, Isabella?
