Padawan: from "Paduan," a term describing people from the Italian city of Padua. By implicit contrast with the equally geographical surname of master artist Leonardo da Vinci - and its homophone, the last name of Leo Vincey (derived from Latin Vindex, "avenger"), protagonist if H. Rider Haggard's 1887 colonial-fantasy novel She. (Leo's name was also the source of Mace Windy's name in the 1973 Journal of the Whills fragment.) Tan: this mysterious title, applied to both Anakin Skywalker and Maarek Stele (protagonist of LucasArts' Tie Fighter) has been retroactively deemed an honorific granted to exceptionally skilled pilots. Probably it comes from Japanese dan, or "rank," a word used to denote numerical levels of mastery in both martial arts and high-level go tournaments.
