    They told people they gave Luke the last name of Skywalker in honor of his dead step mother Shimi in which he loved as his own mother. I got this from the EU if you are curious.

    Shimi was Luke's grandmother, not step-mom.

    Also, don't forget that Anakin/Vader had no idea that Luke and Leia were named Luke and Leia. They weren't named until Obi-Wan pulled them out of Padme.

    Because at the time Darth vader was not Luke's father. Movies weren't written beforehand everything just got written as things went along.
