Names that rival Renesmee

August 8, 2008 at 2:17 pm 74 comments

I’m not sure how it came up, but amelie and I were (as usual) e-mailing each other back and forth instead of working, and we started coming up with names that were as bad as “Renesmee.” Mostly by putting two random names together and seeing what we could come up with. Here’s what we’ve got so far.

  1. Libricia (Libby & Patricia)
  2. Wesoug (Wesley & Doug)
  3. Horothy (Horace & Timothy)
  4. Vanargaret (Vanessa & Margaret)
  5. Elizalotte (Elizabeth & Charlotte)
  6. Herboody, Woodbert,Bertoody, Wooher, Bertwood (Herbert & Woody)–they were too good, we couldn’t pick just one!
  7. Pickenerzie (Piper & Mackenzie)
  8. Euner (Abner & Eugene)
  9. Jubarabudy (Judy & Barbara)
  10. Pelvin (Peter & Melvin)

Anyone care to add more??!

    Lmao. I’m not exactly sure how I found your page but I’m glad I did. These names are so disgusting, lol. I’m sure Stephenie Meyer would use these for her next book. Ahah. She probably would. (;

      are you daft?! Most people with a degree in literature wouldn’t be able to spell that piece of GARBAGE! Stephanie Meyer is such a terrible writer that Stephen King himself said she can’t write worth a darn! And if he says that……. it really means something.

      Ms. Meyer needs to go to a few writing classes at the community college before she puts out another book. I can write better than her. To prove it, just look at yourself. You’re still reading this aren’t you!? HA

And if u read the book bella was going to name the baby edward if it was a boy. But any way, my point is that renesmee is a beautiful name! And u dont have to say mean things about the name. Its just not nice.

    Renesmee is a retarded name, sorry. Everyone’s got a right to their own opinion, but I think you’re in the minority on that one.

    And I think she was going to name the baby Edward Jacob in the book if I remember correctly. But I could be very wrong, because I’ve tried to scrub that awful book out of my memory. But Edward Jacob would have been MUCH more acceptable than Renesmee.

    And if you haven’t figured it out, we aren’t always nice on this blog. Sorry. Go to the Lexicon if you don’t want to read criticisms.

    brooklyn, the sad thing is, we’ve had a lot more comments from Renesmee fangirls that are even worse, but we decided that it was getting old and we didn’t approve them for posting. One person said the names we made up are HORRIBLE (well DUH, that was the whole effing point!) And apparently, since we don’t like the name Renesmee, we should NEVER voice our opinion on anything ever again, and we’re horrible people, and we’re going to burn in hell.

        I REALLY don’t mean to be mean, but I’m just going to be blunt. If you’re that obsessed with Twilight–that you’d name your kid “Renesmee”–then you’ll probably never get married. The vast majority of guys kind of hate the book. (Because face it. Edward does NOT really exist, and most guys do NOT act like him. Which is probably a good thing, because no matter how much I like the first book, you’ve gotta admit it: when you get down to it, Edward’s kinda creepy. He watches Bella sleep at night. He fantasizes about her blood. He’s WAY too overbearing and controlling. Does any girl REALLY want that? No. Not really. Even though it might be nice to read about every now and then.) And I don’t know a single guy that would ever name their child “Renesmee.” That kid would be ridiculed for the rest of their life, and everyone would think their parents were morons that were a little too obsessed with Twilight.

    First off your names aren’t that great to be nocking someone elses. You can voice your opions could realy care less about that. I have a not so commen name. Even though I am a real person there is probably some poeple who are out there that have the name Renesmee.

    If you were the one who came up with Renesmee, you wouldn’t wanting people to be nockingt it. That would hurt your feelings as an Authore and as a person. I’m pretty shoure that a lot can be sad about your names and if some one Singlehandedly pointed your name out nad making fun of you. You would deffiently be pissed off.

    You don’t have to be rude to get your point across!!!!

    Um, sorry, my name isn’t Lisa. Not sure where you got that from.

    And our names aren’t SUPPOSED to be good. They’re SUPPOSED to suck–that’s the whole point. They’re bad names, just like Renesmee is a bad name.

    Speaking of Renesmee, no, I don’t think there are that many people with the name Renesmee out there. If there were, I think we would have heard about it. They would have been like, “Awesome, my very rare and unusual and crappy name is in a BOOK! COOL!” So the only people you will ever see named Renesmee are going to be people whose moms thought that Breaking Dawn was actually a good book and worship the ground that Stephenie Meyer walks on–which we obviously don’t.

    And when you’re a writer, you take the risk of people hating your work. You get insulted and criticised. You get negative reviews. You usually get a little bit of praise, too. That’s all a part of it. I’m sure Stephenie Meyer is fine. She’s made an assload of money off of this series, after all. I think her ego can take the hit.

    And sorry–if you’ve read any of our other blogs, you would have noticed that we kind of enjoy being rude. Deal with it, or don’t read it. A LOT of people hated the book, and hated the name Renesmee. I think you are in the minority on this one.

    Fuckin’ A, kegger. However, I think you and I are in the minority about that name. I mean, obviously everyone else in the world loves it and hugs it and calls it George, and we’re Satan on earth for thinking it’s a crappy-ass name.

    Also, my name isn’t really amelie. Just for the record.

    Also also, if it’s rude for us to make fun of a fictional name, isn’t it also rude to say that our names aren’t so great?

    Actually, i think a name isn’t supposed to be boring and ordinary. I say the more unusal and beautiful the better!! At least stephanie meyer put some imagination into naming Renesmee, most parents just pick the first name that comes into their head, so long as it sounds ok.

    here are some other great names!!(quite a few are from other books)

    Stelmaria
    Amoret
    Andromeda
    Cleopatra
    Nymphradora
    Cassiopheya
    Seraphina/Serafina
    Caterina
    Raphaela
    Anastasia

    and more but i cant think of any right now.

    Buahaha I laughed and laughed when stumbling on this site. Renesmee is the most horrible name I’ve heard so far- and I didn’t even twig that Carlie was the combination of Carlisle and Charlie til my partner pointed it out.

    I LOVE that fangirls are all miffed and indignant that you’re ragging on ‘Renesmee’ (particularly the one who can’t spell and has no idea of punctuation or grammar, leading me to suspect she’s 15) because in all honesty, it’s an absolute trainwreck of a name and really, the rancid icing on the heinous cake that is Stephenie Meyer and the Twilight series.

    Cat, most of those names were either created purely from an author\s imagination or else were cultural names (Ingrid? Really?). I actually think on its own “re NEZ may” is not too bad for a fictional character. I think it’s incredibly lame of Stephanie Meyer to have chosen it because…

    a) COME ON. Renee and esmee? You can’t decide on one person to name it after? Don’t get cute, name it Esmee Rene Cullen, etc. It’s like she can’t choose who she likes best (a la naming a boy “Edward Jacob” after all the issues they went through)

    b) when i read the name I immediately though “this is why 18-year-olds (is she 19 yet in the book? No, dear lord, edward’s only 17…?) should not be having chioldren.

    It reminds me of those teens who have babies and then feel the need to name them “diamond” (i know one) or “kaytelynne”.

    I foud it funny when i read it, and then I realized she was serious.

    I don’t know if that was clear, but I think SM was just either lazy (for not creating a new name if she wanted to be clever) or just very sad (was renesmee planned? Rene is not a popular or a romantic name. please tell me that she did not think of doing this from the beginning)

    Tendish & Biscuit

    For a start, the fact that you put “Renesmee” into the search engine, even though you disliked the name would suggest you were looking for an argument, which means you have far too much time on your hands, and you probably spent hours structuring your rant, so just for that effort i’ll reply.

    I think you’re determind to hate the name, simply because it’s:
    a. Created by an author, for a book
    b. just to try and be different
    c. Because it’s a mixture of two other names

    If you weren’t so focused on the fact it was made up by Stephanie, and just looked at the name itself you will find it is actually a charming and rather pretty name. Also, every name was made up by someone at one point in history, so your earlier point was a little stupid. Also, many names used in our society today are a mixture of two names, for example Abrianna.

    So for gods sake, like it or don’t, as you please but don’t make out its a stupid name just because its against your personal taste, and stop critising everyone who likes it. Remember, we aren’t all Stephanie Meyer fans,

    Thank you

    Mm, no I think you’ll find, I don’t find the name charming or rather pretty, regardless of who coined it. It’s an awful sounding name.

    I’m surprised- does it take you hours to structure your rants? I find it rather easy to express my opinions.

    Why else would someone dislike a name, other than it being against personal taste. That is the whole point of this entire thread. ‘ABRIANNA’ is also an awful name. =D

      Nope, it doesn’t take us any time to write a rant. That’s one of the easiest things there is to write, Tendish. And one of the most fun.

      I also think Abrianna is an awful name (and I’ve NEVER heard of anyone named that before). I’ve heard of Adriana. But not Abrianna.

        I found this post because I googled “Renesmee dumbest name ever” in the hopes that I could find like-minded people. Voila! Here you are! My coworkers (mostly women) were big Twilight fans and while they were trying (and failing) to explain to me what made these books good, happened to mention this name and the thought (if you can call it that) behind its creation. I would never deign to crack the cover of one of these books, but I still feel duty-bound to publicly state that Renesmee is probably the stupidest name I’ve ever heard – though Abrianna gives it some stiff competition.

  • 39. ameliebee  |  July 22, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    After months and months of agonizing soul searching, I have come to the conclusion that Renesmee is, in fact, still a ridiculous name, and I, in fact, still do not like it or the book in which it was created.

      It’s definitely still a ridiculous name. Still hate the book AND the name. Though I have to admit, I’m still a fan of Twilight, despite the fact that it’s a poorly written book and Edward is really creepy when you really think about it.

      And I have to say, I’m still surprised that nearly a year after we wrote this particular blog, we’re still getting comments on it. Cool and all but… wow. Obviously the name Renesmee really stirs up debate.

    I agree that Renesmee is a terrible name, typical of teen mothers who have no idea what they’re doing. Breaking Dawn was the worst book of the series. I like the first three, but I can see clearly why most people hate them, Stephenie Meyers is… not a very good author, and this is coming from a fan.

    STEPHANIE MEYER COULD HAVE DONE SO MUCH BETTER, IF YOU REALY WANNA COMBINE THE NAMES WHY NOT DO IT IN A PRETTY NON STUPID WAY. RENEE+ESME: REESE. I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS WHILE READING THE BOOK, YOU DONT AUTOMATICALLY KNOW IT COMES FROM THE MIXING OF THOSE NAMES BUT ONCE YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IT KINDA DOES.

        Not really. It’s easy to read all 4 books in a day, Stephanie Meyer is hardly James Joyce. And it is not a bad idea to try something even if you don’t think you will like it. Parents do it to kids all the time, it’s supposed to build character. Also worthwhile if only to stop people constantly saying “OMG you haven’t read them?!?”

  • 49. Last HP Relative  |  May 4, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Oh wow… what funny comments. The way Twilight read was like a fangirl of vampires decided to make a book about her dream life. The name Renesmee is indeed an atrocity of the english language, any person/vampire over 100 years old wouldn’t name their child that. Yeah, Steph had some good ideas about the shapeshifting werewolves, but I find that the only redeeming quality.The movies are hilarious to watch also.

    I’m only now reading the fourth book and even though I’ve done my best to tolerate the bad writing, the name Reneesme has repulsed me to such an extent that I simply can’t read any further. I thought at first that it was a joke, but alas not. Then I hoped that the nick Nessie would stick for all involved but again dimwit Bella insists that the full name be used at every op. SM just proved that she’s totally “kommin”.

    I love you guys. Renesme is indeed a horrible name, but the names you came up with are way worse. Especially Pickenzie. XP

    But, more importantly, Breaking Dawn was the worst book. Ever. Scarred me for LIFE.

    Dunno if you’ll check this, like ever, but I was wondering if you guys had noticed Bella’s initials … ? Bella Swan.

    B.S.

    I’d swear on my deathbed that’s why Smeyer came up with the whole ‘Isabella’ deal.

    Wendy was a made up name at the time for Peter Pan, and look how that name has become so normal. I don’t think you should make fun of others ideas when obviously your own created names were hardly any good.

      alicia, our created names WERE SUPPOSED TO BE BAD. That was kind of the point.

      It wasnt made up for Peter Pan-it became popular because of Peter Pan. Huge difference 😉

    In my opinion, Those are all ridiculous names. Renesmee is not bad. I actually like it. I’m not a fan of Twilight, but I like the name of Renesmee. It’s original.
    My name is Emmalie, and people ask me all the time if I was named after Twilight, because of how my name is spelled. It’s not, it’s just a original way to spell it. Don’t you think? So people, stop putting down the name Renesmee, and get over the fact that a lot of people like it. You don’t have to be a fan to like things.

      And my name was originally spelled: E-M-I-L-L-Y.. But I changed it to Emmalie. I like the spelling. (:

        For the life of me, I can’t figure out why ANYONE would ask you if you were named after Twilight unless you’re like, 2 or 3 years old – which I assume you’re not, since you can type complete sentences. And, you know, the books aren’t that old and all. Also, “Emmalie” isn’t even REMOTELY close to “Renesmee.” So… yeah.

        And, they’re supposed to be ridiculous names. THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT OF THE BLOG!!!

        And if you’d read some of my other posts, you’d know that I actually like the first Twilight book. Still hate the name Renesmee. It’s okay to be a fan and still dislike something about a book. Stephenie Meyers doesn’t shit rainbows and fart butterflies. Every single thing she writes ISN’T going to be perfect – no author is perfect. Fangirls all over the internet have praised the name, but not one person that I’ve ever actually met and discussed the book with face-to-face has admitted to liking the name. I think there are more haters than fans of the name out there.

    In reading your list I nearly spit my coffee onto my keyboard 🙂 Bad baby names are a morbid fascination of mine, as is this “quest for uniqueness.” I do admit I’m biased there, having one of the most consistently-popular American names throughout the past 40 years (SCREW YOU -ADENS!).

    xkcd’s comic about bad baby names led me here because I was one of those who did a Google search for ‘renesmee stupid name.’ It totally is, and loved your post!

      SO glad we could entertain you, Mike. It’s nice to get good feedback occasionally. The Stephenie Meyer Fangirls don’t seem to understand us at all. Oh well! I don’t understand THEM very much, either!!

    Lol, unlike other twilight fans… Im one with a bit of humor and can actually read someone’s option different from my own and not get offended. Btw, those name you guys picked.. In all honestly, I actually like the name “Elizalotte.” so much that I’m stealing it… But, everything else was horrible and funny!
    ( Yes I understand that was the intention..haha )

    Personally, I liked the name Renesmee from the very beginning.. When I first read the name, I was like awwwwh!.. Bella mixed both her mom and Edward’s mom name together how sweet!! *fangirl love mode*

    Then after I finished the book and asked my friends who hate and even the ones who do love twilight of what they thought of the half-vampire child’s name, they were like, wtf?? Alex, that is a horrible name or yea I think it’s too weird.. Blah,blah.

    Then I even joked to my boyfriend how when / if i have a baby girl in the far future..I’m sooo going to name her Renesmee Isabella and he was all like, Do you want our child to hate us?! XD haha..

    But, It’s whatever, Even when most people hate on the name, I still liked it and even grown to love it… But that’s probably because I like crazy,weird and unique things. 🙂

    [ PS: Don’t hate on me too hard if I misspelled some words.. Too lazy to go back and check.. :0 ]

      Finally, a COOL fan that gets it!

      Feel free to steal Elizalotte, or any other names we came up with!

      And I’ll freely admit, I have a love/hate relationship with the Twilight series. I loved them (minus Breaking Dawn, which I kind of hated), even though as I was reading them, I was thinking, wow, these are kind of poorly written. For the life of me, I still can’t figure out what it was about those books that sucked me in so hard. Having said that, I have a LOT of issues with the series, one of which being the name Renesmee. That’s one reason I find it so entertaining that people bash us so much. I actually LIKE the series! (amelie bee, however, does not.) So all of these fangirls attacking me kind of entertains me.

      Thanks for not flaming us for making fun of something. 🙂 You’re awesome.

    In the world of Stephanie Meyer, she had an amazing idea of combining a world of humans, wolves and vampires into a story that many people love. As a child is born of both vampire and human, it fit perfectly that a unique child must have a unique name. And the best part of it was that the name came from both mothers names, Renée and Esme to create Renesmee.

    Personally, I think it is fitting for the child, especially since it has both mothers names. I also think that Stephanie Meyer has written four (five if Breaking Dawn was split into two like the films (in my case it was four)) extremely amazing books! Even the films, directed by Catherine Hardwicke (directed Twilight), Chris Weitz (directed New Moon), David Slade (directed Eclipse) and Bill Condon (directed Breaking Dawn part 1 and 2), were brilliant!

    To be fair, some names like Renée and Esme create nice names such as Renesmee but also some names like the ones you have listed can create the worst names alive. If you choose the right names to combine, you can get a perfectly nice name for a daughter, or even a son.
