I named my son Lucas because of One Tree Hill (was going to be Lucas Scott, but I dated a Scott that was an ass, so had to nix that middle name) If my son would have been a girl, she would have been named Peyton Bliss

In a few years, the names of characters from "Twilight" will be about as vivid in people's memories as the names of characters in "Melrose Place", so people will stop asking.

When he grows up he can say he was named after mathematician Liam Cullen, or serial killer Charles Cullen, or 1950s game show host Bill Cullen or "professional genius" Olivia Cullen, or any of the 43 other people surnamed Cullen who have Wikipedia articles about them. It's a pretty common name.

You must be around my age. I'm not Peyton, but another name from the show. Mom wasn't a fan, but heard the name from there.

Growing up, there were usually 2 or 3 girls with the name in class. All spelled differently.

I think it's fine to use the 'Twilight' names. They seem nice. Being named after a tv show or movie doesn't impact one's life negatively-I've had a happy and successful life with my name
