Anakin - according to Wikipedia the name of Luke Skywalker's father, Anakin, was based on the last name of a friend of George Lucas. But I also came upon the following trying to research this name. In the Old Testament a race of giants are called the Anakim - they are descendants of Anak and their name may come
from a root meaning "strength" or "stature". Personally I find this to be the perfect meaning to be associated with the Anakin in Star Wars, as Darth Vader is known for both his strength and stature. In addition the giant Goliath is supposed to be a descendant of the Anakim. The battle between Luke and Vader seems to me a David and Goliath type battle, in fact the entire rebellion could be seen as David and the Empire as Goliath. The Anakim were supposed to have dwelt in the Holy Land
before the Hebrews came there from Egypt.
Anak is also associated with Anax. In Greek Anax means "king" or "lord" or "leader", in the sense of a tribal king or military leader. It comes from the stem 'wanakt' and sometimes appears as 'wanaka' or 'wanasa'. As the term is used in the ancient Greek texts, an anax (such as Agammemnon) is a kind of high king, or a king in charge of other lesser kings. Anax is also a term used to refer to Zeus who is the king of the gods and 'overlord of the Universe'. Even in the ancient Homeric writings Anax is not a term used for just any king, but reserved for legendary kings and gods. It is hypothesized that this term originates with the Proto-Indo-European 'wen-ag' meaning 'bringer of spoils'. It appears as part of other terms, Hipponax (king of horses), Anaxagoras (king of the agora), Pleistoanax (king of the multitude), etc. The plural, Anakes meaning "kings" was used to refer to the 'heavenly twins' Castor and Polydeuces whose temple was called the
Not that Georgie had any of this in mind when naming Anakin Skywalker. Still, it is interesting to me that the name could be seen to be related to these ancient figures.
Baldric -from the German roots "bald" meaning "brave" or "bold" and "ric" meaning "rule". This name was brought to England by the Norman invaders and was common in the Middle Ages.
