Emperor Palpatine finally has a first name...
« on: October 20, 2014, 02:02:30 AM »

...and it sounds really dumb:

Maybe it'll grow on me. I hope it does.

I was thinking about what Lucasfilm could've chosen for Palp's first name... other silly names that would still be better than what they're giving us...

- Cleevus Palpatine
- Smokey Palpatine
- Burndface Palpatine
- Monty Palpatine
- Conan O'Palpatine
- Georgucas Palpatine
- Yodus Palpatine

Feel free to chime in with your own ideas, folks. :)

I could swear his name was already released and it was Ethril, prob wrong but that's what I've always thought.

If we had known his first name early on I think it wouldn't sound so odd. The fact he was the Emperor (and to those in the know Palpatine) for decades makes it hard to kill that mystery without it sounding disappointing. If in the Star Wars canon (novelization etc) in the 70's and 90's his name had been Pietre Palpatine probably none of us would have batted an eye. Now trying calling him something like that and it just sounds "made up"!

"Skeevy" is a common word for shady or suspicious - if that weren't the case I'd probably be ok with it. To me it just sounds like they're trying to use a twist on a fad-word that will seem more out of date than Mark Hamill's ANH haircut in much less time.  :mad0218:

I keep hoping this will all turn out to be a joke. It sure sounds like one (except that it's not April 1st).  They might as well have named him "Imevil Palpatine" then. 

And what parent would name their son "Skeevy" or "Skeev" or anything remotely nefarious-sounding to begin with?  Besides me, I mean.

If his name is revealed to be "Skeev" I'm quitting Star Wars!  :winking0071:

K I googled it, the Emp's first name was Ethril and it was supposedly noted in the Phantom Menace visual dictionary. Earlier names were "Cos" which came from first drafts of ANH, actually Cos Dash-it haha.
Sheev is supposedly his first name in "Tarkin" which is noted only on wookiepedia and the content is added by fans; basically I could change it to suit what I'd prefer :P
