10 Star Wars Characters With Truly Weird Names

The Star Wars universe is home to some of the coolest characters in science fiction. You have Boba Fett, Kylo Ren, Yoda, Jyn Erso, Tobias Beckett, and many others. They’re interesting for their relatable stories, heroic acts, and cool outfits—and they all have one thing in common: Their awesome names. For my money, I’m still partial to Enfys Nest and the Cloud-Riders.

But not every character in Star Wars has a name that rolls off the tongue. Try saying Therm Scissorpunch five times fast. Or Amilyn Holdo. Or Aurodia Ventafoli.

To celebrate the franchise’s diverse and growing cast of characters, combed through the site’s extensive database and picked out 25 of the weirdest, wackiest names (so far).

With thousands of characters to choose from, you’re bound to find amusing names; others you might think are really cool. Either way, these characters are an important part of the Star Wars universe, even if they aren’t household names. But knowing who Bargwill Tomder is might make for a cool bit of trivia.

Below are five picks from, along with five of our own. The gallery above includes pictures of each character.

  • Slowen Lo: Described as a driftwood salesman who angrily warns Finn and Rose Tico not to park their ship on the beach at Canto Bight.
  • Sio Bibble: An outspoken governor with one of the franchise’s best mustaches.
  • Sweitt Concorkill: He only appears once, but he surrounds himself with some memorable company as he watches an opera with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.
  • Elan Sleazebaggano: After attempting to sell death sticks to Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sleazebaggano goes home to contemplate his life.
  • Jek Porkins: “Cover me, Porkins.” That’s all you need to know.
  • Droopy McCool: He’s droopy; he’s cool. His name is pretty self-explanatory.
  • Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins: You can find Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins playing his hypolliope at Maz’s castle on Takodana.
  • Magaloof: Magaloof looks concerned, and that’s probably because he crossed paths with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
  • Weeteef Cyu-Bee: Weeteef is one guy I would not want to mess with, mainly because he’d clock you in the face and yell, “CYE-BEE.”
  • Rappertunie: Rappertunie uses his fingers and toes to play an instrument known as Growdi Hamonique.
