    Rey could also be a nickname or an alias if she's trying to conceal her identity.

    Reyna is a better name than Rey. Hoping for an Annie -> Anakin situation here.

    No. Don't care for Annie.

    Reyna is okay. But I'm fine with Rey.

    Rey Solo

    is my guess

    Han and Leia must hide her on Tatooine because she is force sensitive?

    Not a coincidental casting choice IMO. It could be smoked and mirrored all they want, I'm not buying it as an accidental casting.

    Rey sounds like a rather masculine name... like "Ray." I'm hoping its short for something else because it doesn't seem to fit IMO.

    The most intriguing thing to me is that we didnt get a last name. So i think they're trying to conceil it for a reason. I think Rey is a nickname she goes by, and we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out who she really is, which i doubt they'll reveal before the movie is released.

    In other countries like Japan there are females named that I believe I remember a old JRPG ( I can't remember what one but that name sounds familiar in the way its spelled) I think that used that name. And anymore I see so many male names turned female and vice versa any more.

    I think it will fit when we see it more in context.

    I do also wonder if it is pronounced differently too. We have no idea, but I'm sure once we see the character do cool things, we get used to it. I'm wondering if it's pronounced "Ree" not "Ray".

    But ya lots of unknowns still.

    Gee, I've been all wrapped up with this Sony & Marvel thing over Spider-Man, I missed the tidbit about names!

    I think I like Kira better, but as long as she's a cool charcater, the name doesn't really matter.

    Anybody could come up with a logical reason for why she she is either a Skywalker or a Solo. We just wont know until we know

    Based on what little we know for certain based on spoilers and such, the simplest scenario - and the one with the most thematic parallels to what's come before - is that Rey is a Skywalker whose mother is basically a non-entity in the story. Picture the following:
    * Luke meets and falls in love with Rey's mother, but something happens to drive or push them apart
    * Luke disappears
    * Something happens to Rey's mother, resulting in Rey living a vagabond's life on her own

    Such a scenario would not only be mythologically plausible, it would also be very much in Lucas' style and in Abrams and Kasdan's 'wheelhouse'.

    Well, I'm still hoping they don't go the deadbeat/ignorant dad route. Maybe that would work better with a villain offspring.
