And as always, may the fourth be with you! 

#1. “The Tiny Change” Method

Zam Wesell

Zam Wesell

Take an existing name or noun (person, place, or thing) and replace a single letter in that word with another.

Examples: 

1. Jango” is the word “Mango” with the letter J replacing the letter M

2. “Fennec” is the word “Fennel” with the letter L replacing the letter C

3. “Zam” is the word “Jam” with the letter Z  replacing the letter Z

4. “Xamp” (we made this one up!) is the word “Camp” with the letter X replacing the letter C

#2. The “Gimme, Gimme More” Method

Bossk

Bossk

Take an existing name or noun (person, place, or thing) and add a single letter to that word. For this one, vowels work best! 

Examples: 

1. “Boba” is just the name “Bob” + the letter A 

2. “Bossk” is just the word  “Boss” + the letter K 

3. “Greedo” is the word “Greed” + the letter O 

4. “Aurra” is the word “Aura” + the letter R

#3. The “Less is More” Method

Cad Bane

Cad Bane

Take an existing name or noun (person, place, or thing) and remove a single letter in that word

Examples: 

1. “Din” is the word “Dine” without the letter E

2. “Jango” is the name “Django” without the letter D 

3. “Cad” is the word “Card” without the letter R

4. “Pop” (we made this one up!) is the word “Poop” without a single letter O

#4. The “Robots are Taking Over” Method

IG-88

IG-88

Turn yourself into an android and give yourself a cool robotic name by combining letters and numbers. For this method, using your own initials is a good place to start! Using this method, if I were a bounty hunter I would be DF-123!

Examples:

1. IG-88

2. IG-11

3. C-21

Note: If you go down this route and choose to live the rest of your life as an android, you can’t eat cookies. Be ready to part with cookies if you choose this life. 

#5. The “Anagrams for the Win!” Method

Dengar

Dengar

Take an existing name or noun (person, place, or thing) and rearrange all of the letters of that word. 

Examples: 

1. “Dengar” is just the word “Danger” 

2. “Yalpdrungo” (we made this one and the next one up!) is just the word “Playground”

3. “Malify” is just the word “Family”

Pretty cool, right?! And speaking of rearranging things until they fit:  

#6. The “SCRABBLE” Method

Honestly, I really, really, really wanted to add some sort of scientific reasoning as to why this method works but sometimes you’ve just gotta pick some random letters and let the chips fall where they may. 

Examples: 

1. “Dglasfgnv”

2. “Jayfbfao”

3. “Irgytnae”

Yes, I did actually take a bunch of scrabble pieces to come up with those.

#7. The “Mix n’ Match” Method

star-wars-bounty-hunters

Mix and match different methods for a name no one has ever heard before! Try taking a word, rearranging the letters, and then adding some letters to it! Or take a name and remove a letter, mix them up, and then add some numbers in there. 

It’s worth a shot to come up with something cool that no one’s ever heard before, right?
