- Comments and insights on the name Anakin: | Edit
This is my favorite name of all time and has been for most of my life. I love the way it sounds and the way it looks. Yes, I am a Star Wars fan, but I would love the name even if not for Star Wars. Maybe it's not particularly "safe" to use or consider, but with some names around today and a lot of names being invented, what's so wrong or different about this one? It's not unlike a lot of options that are out there today. In my heart of hearts, I would love a my future son to have this name.
- Personal experiences with the name Anakin: | Edit
I rarely run into people who do not like the name. I have had a lot of people tell me that it is a pretty sounding name, even if it had not come from Star Wars. I almost always hear children ask their parents why they didnt name them after a character. I find that funny.
my 2 yr. old son is named Anakin, and everyone who hears his name says that it's the coolest name in the galaxy!
