The 15 Silliest Star Wars Character Names
The introduction to this post contains some minor SPOILERS for Solo: A Star Wars Story. If you want, you can just skip past it and head straight to the silly character names. You do whatever you need to do.
We learn a lot of stuff about Han Solo in Solo. We learn how he first got the Millennium Falcon. We learn how he met Chewbacca. We learn how he met Lando. We learn how he got his blaster. We learn how he got that belt he likes to wear. We learn where he grew up. We learn about his first love. We learn how he learn to be a master smuggler. And we even learn some surprising stuff about his name and its origins. Without getting into the details, I can promise you that stuff will catch you off-guard.
The name stuff got me thinking about Star Wars names in general, and not just where they come from but how ridiculous they are. Luke Skywalker is one thing; Biggs Darklighter is another. And then there are the 15 characters on the list below, whose monickers (which I swear I did not make up) range from the extremely goofy to the downright laughable. Some are named after their jobs, some are named after their looks, a few are even named after their fates. They all have one thing in common: They are extremely silly. And at least one of them is from Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is in theaters now.
