    after any of the Star Wars characters?

    Some names are pretty funky but some have such a nice ring to it. My fav- Leia, although it would be fun to call my kid Jar Jar.

    I would do it, but I don't want to give him a miserable life because of their first name. :p

    Anakin could be an OK name to have.

    No way. I have a son and his name is in no way a SW name. It's great to be a fan. It's another thing to lose sense of reality.

    I don't know...Luke and Leia really aren't that bad. But, I'd never go as far as to name my kid Dex or Ask or Jango! 8-}

    I've always loved the name Luke, even before I became a Star Wars fan. But I definitely wouldn't name my kid any of the other Star Wars names. No way.

    I'd think of Anakin as a good candidate for a son's name. It's a nice name, I don't see any problem with using it, even if it originated in a movie.

    Luke/Leia/Ben would be fine for names, as long as you didn't have two of them together. But, I would name my child Eirtaé... not because it's Star Wars, it's just simply a pretty name :)

    Probably not. Like the ones that are Earth names are OK (Luke, Ben, Leia, Mara, Gavin- nothing wrong there) but they're not all THAT great, I don't think. And the others are just too way out there.

    No, because then everyone would make fun of my kids.

    I do love the names Anakin and Leia though. But Anakin means 'one without family', so I don't think I'd want to name my kid that! 0_0

    Personally I think i'd name kids slightly more normal names-Sophia, Nathalie, etc.

    Imagine naming your daughter Leia and what she would go through in high school.

    My sister has a friend named Leia (or leah, I forget) but it's pronounced the way Tarkin sez it.

    And I think Anakin would be a nice middle name. I prefer Gavin or Derek as a first name, but I'm a pilot fan.

    NO , it would be torture for the child just because you have some bizarre psyhcological urge that you want to fufill. Absolutly not.

    I dont mind obscure or foreign names though, like Helmut and things like that.

    Luke, Ben and Mara are real names so maybe. But I don't like any of them..

    I think I might go so far as to name a kid of mine something easy to spell. Luke, Leia, Mara (there ARE girls out there named Mara!) or maybe an alternate spelling of a name that's easy to say (like Aayla could be Ayla or Aila, or whatever...it sounds like Kayla).

    But maybe once I actually had a kid I'd change my mind...
