Swan is the surname given to the character of Bella in the Twilight Series. Why is Bella's surname Swan? According to vampiric terminology, there are two types of swans: black swans and white swans.
* Black Swan:
A non-Vampire lover or friend, favourably inclined towards Vampires. They may or may not frequent vampire nightclubs and usually understand the vampire lifestyle.
* White Swan:
Someone who cannot tolerate the Vampire lifestyle. In general, White Swans are still a part of the Gothic scene, which often brings them into contact with the vampire community despite their disgust of vampirism.
