Anyone know where the name Anakin came from? Just curious. He deserves a better romance that the little he's had so far. One last thing Tahiri was a sandperson - is that correct? Reb 1. I believe that Geoerge Lucas came up with the name Anakin but I could be wrong 2. Tahiri is not a sandperson / Tusken Raider. She was raised be them.
