The 15 Silliest Star Wars Character Names
Remember Solo? We learned a lot of stuff about Han Solo in Solo. We learned how he first got the Millennium Falcon. We learned how he met Chewbacca. We learned how he met Lando. We learned how he got his blaster. We learned how he got that belt he likes to wear. We learned where he grew up. We learned about his first love. We learned how he learned to be a master smuggler. And we even learned some surprising stuff about his name and its origins. Did you know that Han Solo got his last name because he was alone when he signed up for the Imperial army? Literally, the recruiter is like “Okay you’re alone, you’re Han Solo now.”
Every time I watch Solo, that scene gets me thinking about Star Wars names in general; not just where they come from, but how ridiculous they are in general. 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. I can’t wait to see who we get to add to this list after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!
