One time I named a cat Levi after one of the 12 tribes of Israel. He was my favorite cat of all times when I was 12.

Levi is a very common first name in my family. It's a common Amish/Mennonite name. You yell, "Levi, supper's ready!" in my kitchen and 10 men appear as if by magic.

Are you Amish/Mennonite?

My great-grandfather was Amish but left the church. I have a lot of Amish relatives. My dad was raised in an Amish/Mennonites community and raised us with a LOT, but not all, of the values. As did I with my own family. I'm very old-fashioned as a result. My dad called us "West-coast Amish".

If you need a snickerdoodle (pronounced schnikerdootle) recipe, I'm your gal!

I have always liked the name Isabella, and I know lots of girls who are 3+ (the Twilight series started becoming popular in early '08, right?) named Isabella.

All of the names from Twilight are pretty normal (execpt for Jasper- LOL I'd be pretty angry at a parent who named their son that), so I don't see why it's a problem. Now if the names were really out there I might frown upon that, but truthfully I don't think it will have any effect on their lives at all.

You can't toss a hanky in my daugher's school without hitting an Isabell, Isabella, or Isobel. The named definitely peaked before Twilight.

I knew someone who named her twin daughter's after the two female enemies in the "Dynasty" show.... Alexis and ____. I can't remember the names of the characters and haven't seen this person in over 20 years. I thought it ridiculous at the time but I guess now, all these years later, no one will really know what the names represent unless they were fans of the show.

My mom claims she came across my middle name, Ariel, on the internet before I was born in '90, a year after The Little Mermaid came out... so I'm pretty sure there must be a correlation. But I'm okay with it, I love Disney!
