I think Bella is lovely! I am assuming from what you said about popularity, that you live in Scotland. I also live in Scotland and I have never met a Bella under the age of about 70. It still feels old fashioned and unexpected to me. I do no and Isabella and an Arabella who are children but I don't think either of them go by Bella. I think Bella definitely stand perfectly well on it's own and I wouldn't automatically assume it was short for something else.
It is a lot shorter and simpler than Cressida which may seem unbalanced or mismatched but since they are both very sweet feminine names I still think they could work together.
Basically - I really like Bella and I think it would be a great name for your daughter. By the time she's old enough to care no one will even know about Twilight anymore!

I think it's trim and lovely. Just because Twilight picked it up and ran with it way, way out of the park doesn't diminish the fact that it's a fine name.
As others said, though, given the very rarefied and literary vibe of Cressida, it does feel a bit plain. I would expect something like Nerissa or Portia next to Cressida.Blade, MD

Don't even worry about Twilight! That shouldn't play a role in choosing your daughter's name now that the series has been done and everyone isn't crazy for it now. I LOVE Bella and I think it's beautiful! If that's the name you love, use it. I don't think it has to be short for anything. It's gorgeous on it's own.Judah / Isaac / Malachi
