    Two names that I always love.. but now there are Isabella from Twilight and Anastasia from 50 Shades. As long as you're okay with the association/popularity, you can't go wrong with either. Both of them are lovely.

    I slightly prefer Isabella (biased since I have Isabelle on my list).

    Not really sure why being reminded of Anastasia Romanov is a bad thing. I personally love a little history behind a name. While her story is tragic, I don't think it should stop someone from using the name.

    I like Anastasia better anyway. It has more sass than Isabella, which kind of falls flat for me in comparison.

    Ugh. Bad books, associated with each name. I have to vote for Isabella. The Twilight-hype is slowly wearing off, meaning it's getting more and more a usable name to me. And one of my favorite names is Isabel/Isabelle.

    But one factor is this: Twilight is finished - books and movies. Where as I hear they're making a movie about 50 Shades - so the hype is definitively not off there... Unless the movie is bad. Not that it matters much. The Twilight movies were horrible - and people still went to watch and buy the movies.

    Anastasia, by a mile.

    Isabella is a beautiful name, but I am so tired of hearing it.

    Thanks all of you :-) I really appreciate it :-)

    @Em : I have PM you about the combos. I would love that :-) As for the dead princess I don't even know who she was.
    @linguaphile : Thanks :-)
    @ashthedreamer : Thanks you :-) I understand what you say. I don't mind either the popularity thing with Isabella. It's a gorgeous name and it's happen to be my first love.
    @bibliophile : Thanks :-) I pr. It ah-zee-uh.
    @c@29: thanks :-) personaly I don't think the associations are that terrible :-)
    @vicioustrollop9 : Thanks :-) I agree with you. I don't know why but for me Anastasia is a bad ass name ;-)
    @bluebella : Thank you :-) Personaly I don't mind the movies or the books. I have read both and I enjoyed them.
    @jeska : Thank you :-)

    If you put aside the books association & the popularity what would you choose?
    “I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.”
