When I see ROTS and they decided to send Luke away to Tatooine to stay with his Aunt and Uncle, thus setting up for ANH, I can't help but wonder why they let him keep the name Skywalker? Now im not sure how much a common name Skywalker is in the SW Universe, but it stands out and does seem rather dangrous to let Luke use that name. I mean, when someone called Anakin Skywalker, the only human podracer who won a race at Mos Espa, surley no one would forget that over all those years. I know Jabba was asleep as it happened, but you can't tell me didn't know about it afterwards. In ROTJ when he sees Luke, you would have thought the name Skywalker would of jogged his memory. And it does seem Luke wasn't allowed to mingle with many people bar those at Toshi Station? Maybe places like Mos Eisley/Espa were off limits to him which is why Obi Wan is explaining it to him as they look at it (although this could just be a way of informing us, the audience, of that this place is like). I don't know how sheltered he was on Tatooine, but you would have thought he would have took the name Lars until he first met Obi Wan, and he could say something like 'Your real name is Luke Skywalker, your name was changed to protect you from the man who murdered your father, Darth Vader". So anyone know why they chose to stick with Skywalker? I know Vader knew he had no children so it may not give away anything, but surley with a name like Skywalker, word would spread a bit here and there... Obviously, he needs the last name Skywalker, but at least growing up, Obi Wan could have told them to let him use the last name of Lars.
