Rum and Monkey Twilight Name Generator
Twilight is extremely popular with some age groups right now, so I suppose it was inevitable that someone would come up with a name generator for Twilight appropriate vampire names. On the site, it warns you that you may get a vampire, werewolf or human name from the generator. Again, it is a mapping generator. It wants your name and your gender. Entering the same information twice gives you the exact same results, so there is no random element in the mapping.
Rebecca Scudder is Isabella Cullen.
Henry Johnson is Embry Newton.
Peter Smith is Peter Stanley.
Mary Snyder is Maria Dwyer.
Ann Jones is Gianna Cheney.
Suzanne Smith is Isabella Stanley, mapping the mundane name Smith to Stanley.
Henry Scudder is Embry Cullen, mapping both Henry to Embry and Scudder to Cullen.
Steven Peterson is Jasper Clearwater.
Mary Peterson is Maria Clearwater. Peterson is maps to Clearwater.
Dianne Vale is Gianna Swan.
Rhiannon Williams is also Gianna Swan.
Maryanne Twitter is Maria Clearwater. Again.
This gives a certain amount of information about the way the generator works. First, there is not a large database of names in use. This may be because the creators of the generator wanted to only use names mentioned in the series, but it is frustrating if you and a number of friends are all using it to generate Twilight appropriate names.
Next, and this is interesting, because I did not see it done in any of the other generators reviewed here, they appear to be paying attention to the actual name you type in, rather than first or last letters or other letter combinations. Mary, and names with Mary as an element, map to Maria. Ann, or names with Ann in them (at least as the first recognizable name element), all map to Gianna. Peter is a name used in the book, and so he is given the name Peter.
With this in mind, if a group of people want to use the Twilight Vampire name generator, you will want to tweak the names you put in. If you want to be part of a family- use the same everyday surname. If you don't all want to be Maria or Gianna, enter a name that doesn't incorporate them, or a variation of the names, and see what you get. You may have to play with the names you put in several times before coming up with a unique result, at least for your group.
I'd also like to point out that although it says you may be a vampire, a werewolf, or simply human, the generator does not tell you what category the name it gives you puts you into. If you are more familiar with the series than I am, or have read any of it more recently, it may be obvious to you what category your name falls into. Of course, if you are here playing with a Twilight name generator, you are probably a fan of the series.
