OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian Princess Leah's name was inspired by a character in a "Star Wars" movie, the mother of the infant princess was quoted as saying on Thursday.

"I must admit that I have always been a big 'Star Wars' fan, and Princess Leia has always been the most beautiful in the whole world," Princess Martha Louise said in an interview with the Norwegian daily Aftenposten.

Princess Leah, born on April 8 this year and fifth in line to the Norwegian throne, was due to be baptised on Thursday. In the "Star Wars" movies, Princess Leia is the twin sister of Luke Skywalker and the daughter of Darth Vader.

Princess Martha Louise did not explain the slight difference in spelling of the two names, both pronounced the same way.

"Maybe you'd like it back in your playpen, your Highness."

I wonder what'd it be like with a Star Wars fan for a parent. I read about one mom who liked to quote Darth Vader when she punished her children. "I'm altering the deal, pray I don't alter it any further."

I've always liked the name Leia too. So, any parents here name their kids after Star Wars characters?

"Bossk! Zuckuss! Dinner!" **geez, where are those boys?**

It's funny, my fiancee and I were discussing baby names for when in the future we have kids, and I mentioned Anakin and she liked it!

I'm glad my parents weren't SW fans. I probably would've been named Dengar or some other stupid name like that.:p

On a serious note that is one of the sweetest names ever.

It's quite nice, whenever my mom says something about the amount of figures I've gotten, I remind her who it was that sat me down at age 3-4 and had me watch Star Wars. :p

It's also her fault I'm a fan of Batman, Superman and Star Trek. :D

Must be cool to have Star Wars fan parents.Nice name,good play on the spelling so she wont be totally teased for being named after a SW character ;)

If I ever had kids,one of them would have at least a Star Wars-y middle name or something similar.Turn them into little geeks :D

Now if only the mom changed her name to Padme, that would be cool

I hope they have a son and name him 2-1B.

I once told a few strippers that my name was Anakin. They loved it !

I'm in the same boat, except for the all important last three words of you're post. My wife told me I can get a fish and name it that. But she thinks it's perfectly acceptable to name a kid Hermione.

Cocaine is a hell of a drug. :D

After doing some exhaustive research and digging I have found a still from a security camera of Caesar in the 'champagne room' at an 'establishment for gentlemen' and I believe he just told the young lass his name is 'Anakin.' :p I say that due to the curious look on her face! :D
