Some of the character’s names in a galaxy far far away are pretty nuts. We don’t think we’ll be naming our kids after any of them, except for maybe Luke. Here are some of the silliest names in the entire Star Wars saga:
Salacious B. Crumb (Return of the Jedi, 1983)
This creature is Jabba the Hutt’s court jester, better known for his obnoxious laugh.
Orn Free Taa (The Phantom Menace, 1999)
He is one of the greediest and most corrupt senators in the republic, who desperately could use a beard to hide his rather large chin.
Logray (Return of the Jedi, 1983)
Also known as “The Ewok Witch,” he was an Ewok warrior who turned to dark rituals during his later years, which eventually got him kicked out of the village.
KkH’Oar’Rrhr (Attack of the Clones novelization, 2002)
We dare you to try and pronounce that. He’s a Tusken Raider and the only survivor of Anakin Skywalker’s murderous rampage spurred by the capturing and killing of his mother. Someone should have probably told HIS mother to calm down with the H’s and R’s.
Dengar (The Empire Strikes Back, 1980)
He is a bounty hunter, nicknamed “Packback,” who was in injured in a swoop bike race with Han Solo. This resulted in serious injuries that were healed with cybernetic implants, which left him void of emotion, much like the person who named him Dengar.
Vrook Lamar (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, 2003)
A Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council, someone must have been high when he got his name.
Malakili (Return of the Jedi, 1983)
Malakili is a human male slave in servitude to Jabba the Hutt. He tamed the terrifying-looking Rancor who Luke Skywalker slays at the beginning of the film. Doesn’t his name sound like one of the dwarves from The Hobbit?
Attichitcuk (Star Wars Holiday Special, 1978)
He’s Chewbacca’s father, also known as Itchy. I guess their Wookie tribe had a thing for adjective-based nicknames.
Count Dooku (Attack of the Clones, 2002)
Don’t lie, we know you giggled the first time you heard his name. We totally did too. Formerly Qui-Gon Jinn’s He was a noble who turned to the Dark Side and received the name “Darth Tyranus” from Darth Maul. Those are some violent names for some violent dudes.
Mace Windu (The Phantom Menace, 1999)
The purple wielding Jedi Master and former Master of the Order’s name is more bad-ass than weird. C’mon…any name with both “mace” and “wind” in it is deserving of mad respect.
