"Mary Alice"?

Post by LikeASunburn »

Another random question that I'm sure will cause me to have a "Well duh!" reaction when someone points out the obvious answer that I'm somehow missing... How did Alice know her name was Alice? At first I figured it would have been sewn onto her uniform from the asylum, but I got to thinking about that. If that were the case, wouldn't it say Mary or Mary Alice?

Actually i think she says that she snuck into the assylum and got a lot of info there, prob. was just using her spped and found her files ... and then it says that to find more of the info she went on the newspapers on microfiche to find out about her family.

oh also considering she "died" the obitchuary would have the information or birth and death, she just had to go to the assylum to get the main info.

and remember in twilight james had known information about Alice, and thats how they found the assylum.

But she already knew her name was Alice before she knew she was from an Asylum so that doesn't make sense.

But she didnt know that it was "Mary Alice Brandon"

she never knew her full name ... therefore was not able to get any information about her human life.

at least thats what i was thinking while reading it.

but how'd she know Alice was part of it at all?


...good guess?...well...This IS Alice we're talking about. She's never really had to guess...
Maybe she had a vision of someone calling her Alice?

Maybe everyone called her Alice when she was alive so she managed to remember it.

probably because of the james encounter with bella, bella told her probably.

and ya, maybe she did have a vision of someone doing something right now about her or her file at the assylum.

Alice had gotten the file with her name, and location of grave. As soon as she was admitted into the hospital, she was dead to the outside world. Her date of death on her tombstone, and admittance date into the hospital was the same.

As for Alice knowing part of her name, I have no idea. Maybe that's somewhere on the lexicon?
You and I are both the same. We kill out of indifference, out of love sometimes, but never out of hate. Now I don't know who's dead or alive. I'm sick of killing. So I'm leaving the game, Brother.

I just finished reading new moon EARLY this morning ( 2:30am anyone? ) after my happy buy of it yesterday. >D I'm so glad I can now come discuss the book that everyone's been waiting for.

I think someone already said the answer that I like. Although Alice has now recollection of her human memories, if someone called her Alice enough times, I think it would become something of a habit? Or something like that. Perhaps that was all she remembered of her human years- the name she was called, which would be Alice.

i think that each character's name in the book came from their original name some how and i think that they prob. just decided to call her alice for short ... kind of like what you were saying, but its really confussing as to how this all came about, maybe we will find out more about her in Eclipse or in Midnight Sun (if it gets published)??
