20 Stupid Star Wars Character Names
Despite being the most popular saga of all time, the Star Wars series has its share of silly moments which are normally shrugged aside by loyal fans who choose to focus on their favorite nuances and quotes instead. But the true fans, like moi and Gunaxin’s Stew (actually Stew way more than me), pay attention to some of the more trivial details that even regular fans wouldn’t care to know. That includes the names of minor characters, some of whom weren’t even named until their action figures got George Lucas’s nod of approval. In fact, even some of those got temporary names for the Kenner toy and were renamed years later for new products. So, that toy you had when you were a kid might not be Walrus Man, after all.
While Lucas hit the nail on the head with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Han Solo, and Chewbacca, others got names so awful (perhaps even purposely awful, who knows what Lucas thinks?) that we had to list them. Some you’ve heard of, most you haven’t, and here is a sampling of some of our favorite dumb Star Wars names.
