    Most of those explanations seem stretched. While many of the themes Lucas used were mythological in origin (hero quest, dark vs light, etc) I'm just skeptical of a lot of those name meanings. If anyone has quotes of Lucas expounding on names, I'd be much less skeptical of that kind of evidence.

    I did have a problem with some of the possible meanings of the names, but I had trouble finding a place where Lucas actually said himself what alot of them meant..or even if alot of them had meanings. I figured I'd throw them out there for now since I didn't know if they were all just possible theories or if some of them were the actual meanings of the names.

    I know I had a problem with some of the meanings that were based in mythology..since they didn't have them right.

    I do know that for all the Sith names, he derived them from Latin, and for luke, that did come from Lucas...but he did it becasue it ment light or something light, and Leia does mean medow, that is why the medow scene was in AOTC, thats about it though.
