175- um excuse me? Just because something's from the 70s, does not mean people will not understand references from it. "Frankly, I don't give a damn" is still used today, is it not? Personally, I wanted to name my children Edward (it's a family name) and Isabella because I have always adored that name; but now I can't :(
I think Star Wars will be a movie that continues to be known; it's just way too awesome. I know I'm showing my children that when they're young... And they will love it... Seriously though; I think it will be remember mainly for how revolutionary it was. The technology in the movies were far beyond their time. Like how Psycho is remembered by being one of the scariest movies of its time (and that's more than 10 years older than Star Wars). If your teenager doesn't have a clue as to what "Gone with the Wind" is, tell her to watch 5 seconds of Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" which I'm sure she's seen. They reference it by a corpse dipping his live wife and saying, "Frankly, I don't give a damn". It's at least still alluded to.
Yeah, my daughter is 16 months old right now and she will DEFINITELY know Star Wars. I'm a huge fan of it and she'll definitely love it, just as she'll love all my other favorites (Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter, Never-ending Story) and of course a bunch of others. Just because some parents won't try and keep Star Wars alive with their kids, doesn't mean others won't too. Oh, and I'm also going to teach her about old game series too (Legend of Zelda, Mario, resident evil, metroid prime, pokemon etc) so she can learn of the classics. Btw, my daughter's name is Zelda, I shit you not.
You may as well have a lawyer on retainer for when they both want to change their names on their 18th birthday. Vayda is actually kind of cool. At least he doesn't want Yoda or Jar Jar.
Darth is an odd name for a girl...however Vayda would make a great name for a highschool football star...
A high school football star who became great because a. He spent so much time running away from people trying to beat him up because of his name, that he's the best running back in the country. or b. He spent so much time beating the crap out of people making fun of his name that he's the best defensive end/tackle in the country
I have never watched star wars in my life...
The movies were technologically superior for the time they were introduced, and the story lines were sophisticated and fresh. The delivery probably seemed boring if you're not big on sci-fi, but it was a good series. It's like the Transformers of the 80s and 90s-minus the sexual innuendo and stupidly simple plot points (I'm looking at you, Michael Bay).
I approve this name selection. Sorry OP, nothing beats the epicness of Star Wars.
