Nowadays, everything has a fandom, from Supreme Court justices (RBG, obviously), to specific brands (Nike, Subaru, Coca Cola, you name it), to design styles (cottagecore, anyone?) and personal aesthetics. But before our preferences somehow morphed into personality traits — thanks to the existence of online communities, making it much easier to find other people with the same niche interests — being out-and-proud about your fandom could be seen as, well… a little geeky. For an example, look no further than the Star Wars trilogy. Although initially associated primarily with the nerdy kids in school, the fandom has reached the point of people choosing Star Wars names for their offspring (and/or beloved pets).

The Star Wars fandom increased significantly after a new generation was exposed to the original movies and the seemingly never-ending stream of prequels and spinoffs. Exactly how many movies and TV shows are we talking about? While there are even more where these came from, the 12 main films in the Star Wars franchise are Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace (1999); Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones (2002); Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith (2005); Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018); Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016); Star Wars (1977); The Empire Strikes Back (1980); Return of the Jedi (1983); The Mandalorian (2019); Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015); Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017); Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). And though there have been many TV shows based on Star Wars, arguably, none have had the impact of The Mandalorian, which Disney+ introduced in 2019.

So, though once seen as socially undesirably, people now own their Star Wars fandom and wear it with pride. While this can take many forms — think weddings, houses, costumes, conventions, and parties, to name but a few — one that’s constantly increasing in popularity is naming babies after Star Wars characters. Whether parents opt for Jedi names or look to other characters for inspiration, there are plenty to choose from between all of the films and TV shows in the Star Wars universe.

Here’s a whole galaxy’s worth of Star Wars names fans of the franchise, broken down by the movie or TV show with which the character is most closely associated.
