11 Star Wars-Inspired Baby Names

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 11.56.30 AM
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is out in theaters today – great news for all the nerdy mamas out there (myself included). I thought it would be fun to put together a Star Wars-inspired baby name list in light of this event. I’m so geeky cool.

And no, we aren’t going to name our kid Jabba or anything. I mean, that’s just mean.

Here are our 11 favorites:

#1: Luke (m)
Kicking off the list with one of our favorite Jedis. It’s a classic name that means “light.” Seems to be a perfect fit when his weapon of choice is a lightsaber. Also, true story, I’m planning on naming my son Luke (if I have one!)

#2: Leia (f)
Your little girl will be a strong, little warrior with a name like Leia. Our favorite heroine has such a pretty name, don’t you think?

#3: Han (m)
Who doesn’t have a crush on stealthy, cocky, sexy Han Solo? The name Han actually means “gift from God,” and I’d say that is probably accurate. Your handsome little guy will own this name.

#4: Eisley (f)
A nod to Mos Eisley, the spaceport located on the planet of Tatooine. Eisley is a unique and sweet sounding name for a girl.

#5: Poe (m)
Short and sweet! Poe may become your new favorite pilot in the Star Wars universe, and his name is pretty catchy.

#6: Vada (f)
No one wants to name their kid Vader, do they? I mean, those who do, to each their own… but Vada is a pretty girl’s name with a nice nod to our favorite Dark Lord.

#7: Sky (uni)
So, you may not want to name your kid “Skywalker,” so Sky is a great alternative. Perfect for a little girl or boy.

#8: Anakin (m)
Anakin is a strong name for the little man in your life. Just know that this is definitely one of those names that screams “I LOVE STAR WARS.”

#9: Rebel (uni)
A name that represents the strength of the Rebel Alliance. Great for fans of Return of the Jedi. I think I prefer it for a boy, but Rebel Wilson paved the way for ladies, too!

#10: Rey (f)
Have you met Rey yet? We have a strong feeling that Daisy Ridley’s character is going to become quite popular, as well as this name.

#11: Millie (f)
Millie sounds darling, right? Yes, darling… but deep down you’ll know that it has an edge to it. After all, you’re naming your kiddo after the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy: the Millenium Falcon!

Runners up: Kylo, Storm, Jaina, Jacen, Finn, Lucas, Ren

Okay, let’s see what you got. Put your naming Jedi skills to the test and add to our list in the comment section.
