Reminds me of Anakin Skywalker (star wars). DH and I are huge Star Wars fans so that could be part of it.

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

I'm sure it was meant to be a reference to Star Wars, but i think it's too nerdy. I think it's a cute idea and I love the idea of "nerdy names", but it's so out there. It's one thing if you name your kid Bruce after Batman or Parker after Spiderman, but Anakin is a bit too much and would call for the nickname "Annie" which is too much of a girl's name imo.

I've convinced him it was too star wars. He sure was stuck on it! Yes, because of star wars.

I do like it. I considered putting it on my list, but I didn't want him to always be asked "are your parents Star Wars fans?" since I've never seen a Star Wars movie. It will always be associated with Star Wars, but if that doesn't bother you than I think it's fine if it's the name you love.

I also think of Star Wars, and I'm not even a huge fan. It's just the only place I've ever heard the name.

All I think of is Star Wars, it's a bit much for me to be honest. But I don't think it's horrible.
