20her real name is Esme Anne Platt Evenson
What a long name. Esme Cullen sounds a lot better. Though her middle name of Anne is nice. Perhaps she should have kept that as a vampire. Then again, perhaps she wanted to leave her old life behind her. Esme has a rather tragic backstory, as
you will see. Her parents didn't support her, her human husband was a jerk, no wonder she was glad to be with Carlisle and become a vampire.
As a vampire, as a Cullen, her life is much better. She has a loving husband in Carlisle and has adoptive children who love her in Edward, Emmett, Rosalie, Alice, and Jasper. She eventually even has a grandchild in Bella and Edward's daughter, Renesmee, who is partially named after her.
