No legacy is so rich as honesty

News of the Legacy systems of Star Wars: The Old Republic, particularly a common surname across characters on a server that must be unique, has prompted some furious thinking at KiaSA Towers. What could be a lore-appropriate name that would work for all future characters? Aficionados may be aware of several previous Star Wars video games, but there’s also an entire expanded universe of rather obscure novels, comics and even some feature films, so we’ve been scouring these for inspiration. Here’s the shortlist for our characters, don’t go using them up before we get a chance!

  • Skywalker
  • Starkiller
  • Sunwounder
  • Gasgiantgrazer
  • Layheeyodalayheeyodalayheehoo (surname of some green dude who lived in a swamp)
  • Solo
  • Duo
  • Trio
  • Triiiiiiiiiiiooo
  • IwantatrioandIwantonenow
  • Hutt (surname of an intergalactic smuggler, who later branched out into baked dough products, sunglasses and small wooden structures)
  • Vader (most famously Geoff Vader, but also his lesser know brother Darth)
  • Stevens (Mr Stevens, boss of the Death Star canteen, one of the few individuals more powerful than Geoff Vader)
  • Organa
  • Oregana
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Sage
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Coriander-Coriander-Coriander-Cilantro-Chervil
  • Tagliatelle-Frozen-In-Carbonara-ite
  • Pad-Thai Urad-dahl-a
  • Grand Moff Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce served in a Proven├žale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate brandy and a fried egg on top and Spam Tarkin (Hang on, that one doesn’t really work…)

After reviewing the contents of the list, we would suggest not selecting your legacy surname while a bit peckish…
