- Comments and insights on the name Anakin
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
-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!
- So we named our son Anakin. I have found that most people love it and have no idea that it is from the movie Star wars. But for those of you who are worried about the name being negative, don't. Some consider Darth Vader the first real grey Jedi, one that could control both the light and the dark. Which is what made him so powerful in the first place. In the end he saw the error of his ways and fought to protect his son, Luke. Also if you break the word Anakin down you get graceful relative. And what is better then relative gracefulness.
