Whilst reading the Official Star Wars magazine the other day, saw that the name Orn Free Taa comes from Corn Friter, corn-Frit-aa, very clever. Do you know if there are any other names from star wars that are from every day things?

ree yees--three eyes
jar jar binks--george lucas's son's nonsense word for heavy machinery
amanaman--named after a brand of hair dryer
plo koon--some kind of anagram for one of the production crew or their family
coleman trebor--robert coleman
dannl faytonni--anthony daniels
ack med beq--ahmed best

Off hand I can think of the bounty hunter 4-LOM from ESB: For the Love Of Money.

i think i heard that it's Gungan that his son calls trucks.

Darth Vader = Dark Father
Darth Sidious = Dark Side
Boba Fett could mean an actual guys name: Bob A. Fett

Is that true about 4-LOM, it makes sense but, I'm not sure?

Lucas: "Ok people, we still need a name for Boba Fett's father for Episode II."
Employee #1: "Can we take 5?"
Lucas: "Ok, but then we're gonna work work work."
Employee #2: "Cool. Anyone wanna play frisbee? Hey Jan, go Fetch!"

Ah, that was how they got it!

BTW I'm trying to find how they got Darth Maul's name, so far I've got:
Dark- Dual, replace the D with M for some reason and there you go! That's probably not it, ah well!

Give this site a look, it has alot of them. Some may be wrong though:

Ther you go again Jar Jar answering yet another question, I reckon your not a real person, you're just a search engine that picks out certain questions on this forum! Thanx anyway.

I think Darth Maul is because, well, he mauls things!
Sidious sounds like insidious, hmm . . .

I thought it came from insidious aswell but apparently not, it comes from Dark Side, they're both just as reasonable answers.

Oh god, that's so obvious, how does nobody, including myself, not get them, it's like trebor colman, sooo obvious now we know.

Look out in episode III for a charater named Mullac Kir or Terrb Neb or Honj Smailliw.
