Open Call - What Sith name would Luke Skywalker have had?
Well... as the title goes. It's needed for a possible fic.

Darth Sandblaster? Darth Scorpio as in scorpion? I'm sure I could think of a few better than that in time.

I like the Scorpio one... But I wanted something more obscure...

This is really hard! I can come up with tons of Sith names, but none that really fit Luke. Here are some really bad suggestions. Maybe one will spark an idea for you... I tried the Darth "Vader" theory that some sound better in german, but I'm not sure it works. I don't have a latin dictionary handy. Some of these might be much better in latin (well, except the one that actually is).
Darth Devious
Darth Discord
Darth Dominus
Darth Feuer (german Fire)
Darth Fury
Darth Rector
Darth Malant (Short of Malignant or Malevolent)
Darth Nemesis
Darth Rageon (Rageous…)
Darth Rampage, Rampant,
Darth Rancor
Darth Ravage
Darth Tempest
Darth Varrat (traitor)
Darth Vengeance/ Darth Revenge
Darth Vilious (villanous, vilify, vile)
Darth son (Darth Sohn)
Darth Kalt (german: cold)
Darth Vindicus
Darth Zorn (german: wrath)

I like the Darth Sohn one, espcially if it mirrors the common believe that Darth Vader was playing off the german word for father, hence being Dark Father, so Luke would be Dark Son. Thought of Darth Venomus, but that's a bit to obvious, too.

I feel... Darth Sohn would be a bit obvious, too... (It's not supposed to be glaringly obvious that this Sith is Luke. *g* Rats! I'm giving away too much.)

Ooh you've given me plenty ideas now. I was already thinking in lines of 'Son' or 'Sun' or even 'Star killer'. I'll check out the Latin translations.

I like Malant, too. It reminds me of 'Mordred' for some reason...

Ok let's analyze this. Maul is like, what, claw? So that works for a guy that looks like a giant claw. Vader is like father in swedish which is his secret-ness. Palpatine is just cool to say. You can connect that with palpable, which is like obvious. He's everyone's choice for the obvious bad guy in the OT, so that works.

So Luke is what, the innocent little farmboy who becomes evil? So some name that evokes tragedy... um... looking at the etymology, I see tragos, which also means goat. Which works for Luke; does he not remind you of a goat? sparagmos is also some word that means ritual death, which could work; the death of Luke. Only thing with that is that it reminds me of asparagus, which is so not a cool Sith name.

Darth Tragos. Does that sound too obvious? hmmm... Reihla has a nice list

Actually Palpy's Sith name is 'Sidious' which is appropriate - he's an insidious sort of fella... I like Darth Tragos... but it does sound too obvious....

I wonder what Wormie is in German or Latin? :p

The nerd in me breaks free.

From etymoline.com:

worm
O.E. wurm, variant of wyrm "serpent, dragon," also in later O.E. "earthworm," from P.Gmc. *wurmiz (cf. O.S., O.H.G., Ger. wurm, O.Fris., Du. worm, O.N. ormr, Goth. waurms "serpent, worm"), from PIE *wrmi-/*wrmo- "worm" (cf. Gk. rhomos, L. vermis "worm," O.Rus. vermie "insects," Lith. varmas "insect, gnat"), possibly from base *wer- "turn" (see versus). The ancient category of these was much more extensive than the modern, scientific, one and included serpents, scorpions, maggots, and the supposed causes of certain diseases. In Eng., the -o- was a scribal substitution to avoid confusion of -u- and -r- (as also in some, come, monk etc.). As an insult meaning "abject, miserable person" it dates from O.E. The verb meaning "to move like a worm" is recorded from 1610, in fig. senses (attested from 1627) suggesting patient, sinuous progress.

Darth Wyrm. Darth Ormr. Darth Waurms. Darth Vermis. Mmmm...

Heh, I was thinking Vermis has a nice ring to it... :P
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: September 11th, 2006 07:03 am (UTC) (Link)
It does, doesn't it?

Thanks bobilll. These are really awesome. :D

So right now, it's a tie between Darth Phoebus (sun/star) and Darth Vermis (wormie... :p)

I may go for a Darth Vermis for the Sith name, and Luke Starkiller for his real person name. :D

Thanks you guys!
