Am I right in remembering that earlier drafts had Luke as Luke Starkiller instead of walker? .. if so, maybe Lucas changed the name because of stars like Sharon Tate and John Lennon being killed? .. dunno?
I'd guess "Skywalker" is just a much nicer-sounding name for a hero. A name for a wanderer amongst the stars. "Starkiller" evokes images of a fierce warrior who likely strikes dramatic poses, laser sword in one hand and damsel he's just rescued in the other.
Question : Assuming Luke appears in the next film, what will he look like?
