Now, do they? Every name has a meaning, although sometimes it's hard to find or not even listed at places. For instance, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Does that name have a meaning? I'm not sure, but really, can you think of his character not being named Obi-Wan? How are names used in the Star Wars Sage by GL? Would the outcome have been different if Han hadn't been Han, or Anakin hadn't been Anakin? I try to think now of Obi-Wan Kenobi with a different name... it just doesn't fit right. Did GL do a good job of choosing the names for his characters?
