"................now I am the Master" "Only a master of evil, Darth" It was intended to be his name but when the phenomenon set it I imagine a great many things changed - which isnt a bad thing. GL probably reconsidered the meaning of the word/name "Darth" as early as the conceptual stages of ESB. Thats early enough for me to not care about the blip. It works better as a title, anyway. Master Skywalkerarth Vader. Same Sh@#, Different Morals. Overused, definetly not.
