    There's hints in Darth Plagueis that it might be the same as his father's- Cosinga.

    It was his name in original drafts. Cos Da****. I wonder what the etymology/symbology of the name is and GL uses quite a bit in many SW names.

    Google is my friend. "Cos" means "Elder priest" and "order".

    He reveals his first name in TPM.

    "I must be Frank with you, your majesty..."

    No need to speculate any further now!

    He's the head of an evil Empire that is trying to take over the universe and has the potential to undo all the good that was accomplished before him.

    So his first name could only be one thing......Walt.

    He changed it to just "Palpatine" when the kids wouldn't stop teasing poor Snugglepuss.

    Da****? Wheeeew. Lucas has certainly come up with some questionable names over the years, but that one takes the taco.

    VadersLament makes a really good point about Lucas, character names and etymology/symbolism. One of his more recent questionable names (IMO), Dooku, was apparently derived from the Japanese word doku, which means poison. Of course %99.8 of non Japanese audiences didn't make that connection and many thought it sounded like the unpleasant result of a common bodily function.

    I could see it being Cosinga, after his father. He said he rejected his name plus he hated his father

    If not then perhaps it's something girly and in that case I wouldn't blame for not using the name

    Ronald. George. Sarah.

    I'm kidding. He's too smart for those names. We all know it has to be Dick.
