Ooh, you really are evil.
I have a very common name, and it's because of that I will name kid (or kids) with uncommon names.
I am evil! Wedge is the best boy name ever! Nickname: Wedgie!
well, my mum named her first two dogs Chewbacca and Wookie, if that means anything..... i like Tahiri too, for some strange and twisted reason.....
I like Mara.
I also like Corran for a guy...but i think im naming my kid Tarkin.
Or...Guri...or Yoda...or Mace...
Jag(he'd just be Jag not Jagged)
Well I actually want to name my first girl Magnolia Rose. Her siblings can have SW names.
I'll probably just give my kids SW middle names (except Mara Jade and Luke Jacen).
Hi, I've posted on once before on this board, but don't remember where. My friend set it up for me because I am a completely ignorant to how these message board things work!
Anyway, 4 of my 5 children have Star Wars names.
Anakin Lucas is 12 years old --since Episode One (and soon Episode Two) was released we get a few more strange looks. But since we named him long before Episode One came out, he is secure with it.
Twin girls (fraternal) Leia and Jaina are 7 years old--twins run in my side and my husband's side of the family and it is tradition on my husband's side that there are no middle names for twins, so we followed with that.
Talon Karrde is our 4 year old. His name is very unique and we get the most questions about his. His middle name was somewhat a consolation on my part. I really couldn't come up with a good one and my husband suggested we just use Karrde--I hated the idea at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I liked it.
I would not change my kids names even in hindsight--their names are as individual as they are. They are very well-adjusted and great kids. They may get teased sometimes, but they take it all in stride and know that they are very well-loved by their parents. We don't dwell on the point of origin of their names and surprisingly Anakin and Talon don't even like Star Wars that much, they would much rather read or play Harry Potter!
A (former) teacher told Anakin once that we were cruel and stupid for giving him a name like that--Anakin told him there were a bunch of Michael's in school, but only one Anakin and that he liked having a different name from anyone else's.
I don't justify my kids names to anyone and I don't feel I have to either. With all the evils in the world today that kids have to face--providing them with unending love and support is far more important than wasting time wondering about what somones else thinks of the names we gave our kids!
Needless to say, my husband and I are avid fans of the Star Wars movies and books, but we don't push that onto the kids (except the names). We let them decide what they like and dislike. We've read them a couple of the Young Jedi books and they've seen the movies, but that is about it. Jaina and Talon get mad because they aren't "in" the movies! Technically Talon isn't in the books (that we've read to him) either, so we just make up stories with him "in" them, after all he is only 4!
Thanks for letting me share my "Star Wars" family with you. Next time I visit my friend, maybe I will post again.
I ever have a daughter some day I will name her Kiera Jade, a tribute to two characters, actually. The first name I got from a really cool character in a Peter F. Hamilton novel, and the second one is fairly obvious, I woudl think...
Well, if I'd a boy Id name him Anakin, it's a really lovely name , if the kid turns out good it's Ok, and if he's bad (bet he won't) it'll be OK too . So, my favourite names are:
Mara (it's a common name here in Spain )
Tam (from Rebel Dream and Rebel Stand). I dunno, the name and character attached has grown on me. ^|^
Edit: Also Jaina, Jacen, Anakin, Kyp, and Alema seem like pretty solid names.
Ganner, Jade, Jag, Kyp and Valin are all good names.
For a girl: I like the names Mara, Jysella, Tahiri, Falynn, Tionne, Iella, and Syal. For a guy: Airen, Jacen, Kyp( I know a guy with this name, but its spelled K-i-p), and Corran sound cool.
Hehe. I can see it now: Child taken away from parents because of name being from sci-fi movie, and causing total embarasment, also for the mire fact that no one knows the proper way to pronounce the name.
That would be halariouse! I'd laugh, and laugh, and laugh, and then I'd stop to catch my breath and laugh some more.
Jaina (I sounds real)
Leia (Hawaiian for child of heaven; heavenly flowers)
Anakin (whilist trying to avoid strange looks)
Han (I could be real, that and it sounds cool)
Wedge (I really like this name )
and, last but definatly not lest... Da dada DA!!!
(I'm only kidding. Had you going there, didn't I?)
The Star Wars universe tends to have better girls' names than the real one, in my opinion. Here are a few I like:
The nice thing is, there's a lot of diversity nowadays and many girls have unusual names, and most if not all (at least in my experience) are perfectly accepted and don't get teased at all. For boys it's a bit harder, but it's getting better for them too. Speaking of, here are my favorite Star Wars boys' names.
Jacen (I do plan on using this name if I have a boy; it's one of my favorites)
I think they all have a nice sound to them.
cool thread. I know a kid named Anakin (seriously. we played baseball together) and he hates it and I don't know why.
but Jace_Halycron thanks for starting this thread because I need a name for 'someone's' baby for a fic i'm writing and it is going to be from Star Wars. so HELLPPP!
I bet everyone forgot about this tread.
Anyway for girl's names I'd go with Zena(Wedge's mother) and Jade.
For guy's names I'd go with Gavin and Derek(Hobbies'real name).
As Halloween approaches, more dead threads return to their former lives...
It would be cruel to name a kid Kyp as a first name. I'd have to be on crack.
I know someone named Kip.
Callista Archibald Marmaduke Qyrgg Jp't'tan Durron Skywalker Organa Jade Zaarin.
I like it...10 names!
I also know someone whose mother has 10 names.
But Marmaduke... *shudder*
Lara is not from Mara and Leia. It also is NOT the same as "Laura". When pronounced properly, it rhymes with Mara. It's an old Russian petname for Larissa. Doesn't anyone remember Doctor Zhivago?
Here are names that COULD work:
Leia/Leah (sometimes pronounced Lee-ah), it's a Biblical name
Garik (my friend's sister had a crush on this guy named Garrick. We used to tease her so bad about him!)
Actually, I don't plan on using Star Wars names. I'm going to name my kids after European royalty. So I'd like to have:
I like Nikoly, Dmitri, and Vladimir
Definitely Gavin, Mara and Wes. Maybe some of the others.
I have wanted to name my children Callista Jade and Corran Michael
I told some friends once that I'd like to name twins (if I ever had them) Luke and Leia, Jacen and Jaina, or Anthony and Cleopatra. They said they wouldn't let me. I thin kon ethreat went something along the lines of "I'll come to your house and fill your bathrooms with live flamingoes".
Anyway. If I wanted to be super-original, I'd name my kids Atuarre (girl), Pakka, and Keeheen (boys).
Long live the Trianii!!!
Oh, and I like Jagged too. And Syal. And Shawnyker (or however its spelled)
Wow! When I 1st posted I didn't think anyone else would after me.
Anyway....Gerrik is cool and also Shalla too.
I am here on behalf of the NEUE. If we have posted this request in here before, please forgive us. I am going around asking all of the threads if they would put a governor from their thread in the NEUE. The governor would not have to attend meetings like a Senator would in the Senate, they would just report problems from their thread to the NEUE. We will try and help you out as best as we can. Mainly what we are trying to accomplish, is a quicker, more efficient, alternative to the EUIS, and to try and make a self-government with only major problems being reported to the mods. I thank you for your time, and if you have any questions just pm me. If you want to appoint a governor for your thread, either pm me or put up a post in The EU Empire thread naming your Governor. Thank you for your time.
Jaina is the best girl name. Jacen is the best boy name.
