    Lightbulb Amalgamations & Portmanteaus

    An amalgamated name is a name that is formed by combining several previously existing names. These may take the form of an acronym (where only one letter of each name is taken) or a blend (where a large part of each name is taken, such as the first syllable).

    For example (twilight one): Renesmee

    A Portmanteau word is used to describe a linguistic blend, namely "a word formed by blending sounds from two or more distinct words and combining their meanings, a portmanteau word is typically formed by combining two or more existing words that all relate to a singular concept which the portmanteau word is meant to describe, such as Spanish and English, into Spanglish ?

    Or Like another twilight example: Carlisle & Charlie bella and edwards fathers the names created renesmee's middle name carlie..
