I may be no chief authority on SW lore, but I think the answer has been given, and Nurdy was closest and most general.

I said proper name for the Y-Wing. You don't order a damn Y-Wing by just calling it a Y-Wing and it's model type, you'd need to mention the company who makes it or you'd look like a proper idiot.

Not to mention that you actually got the designation wrong...

Anyway:

Name at least 10 Sith Lords. They have to be proper Sith, Dark Jedi don't count.

Most of those are correct, but...

Darth Rage?
Darth Scarz?
Darth Seer?

I'm not saying you're wrong, but a source would be nice, as I'm reasonably well-versed in Star Wars lore, and I've never heard of any of them.

In the real world, anyone who wants to name aircraft properly (formally) will name the company as well. This way: Boeing Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche.

As for the question... No idea.
Did we ever get the correct answer to the question of the last grand admiral?

Darth Scarz? That is so lame. I bet he was the asshole everyone hated. I expect Vader gave him a wedgie and the Emperor ate his sandwich so in return he decided to give himself a lame bad ass name. I hold bets he listens to insane clown possee too.

I think most Sith lord names are Latin, or some sort of Pseudo Latin.

Assuming the names on that list are all actual Sith names:
Maul, Rage, Seer, and Bane are regular English words.  Sidious is just "insidious" with the first syllable dropped.  Scarz is obviously just "scars" with a stupid Z instead of an S.  Tyrannus is Greek for tyrant, as anyone who likes dinosaurs could tell you.

I remember reading somewhere that when George Lucas was coming up with a name for Darth Vader, he wanted a name that sounded suggestive of both "dark father" and "death water".

Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to Revan and Malak, but the "mal" in Malak is probably from Latin.

I wouldn't know.  I don't speak Norwegian.

I'd say that you should ask Hawk or Ingvild about that, but I don't know if they even post here anymore.

Ingvild posted not too long ago, I think... So she still exists. Don't remember which thread  it was in.

"Darth Vader" is neither Norwegian, Swedish or Danish. The only thing I've heard is that Lucas meant it to suggest "Dark Father"

@Nurdy: The BlasTech DL-44 was actually made from a German "Broomhandle" Mauser pistol with an attached WWI era German sniper scope manufactured by Hensoldt Wetzlar, a fire extinguisher dispersion nozzle (not a flash supressor as most people think) and an engine part from a model aeroplane as the front grill (the same part that was used for the muzzle of Greedo's blaster). This is for the ANH version of the gun.
The BlasTech E-11 was made from a British Sterling submachine gun with... Oh screw it- just go to Parts of Star Wars and click "item" at the bottom.

[EDIT]I knew the Mauser and Sterling modifications by heart, though. I think they used windshield wipers on the barrel of the E-11, just like they did on Vader's saber, and not (as they speculate on PartsofSW.com) T-tracks from sliding doors, though that is also possible. I base my theory upon the fact that on some E-11s, the grips aren't glued onto the barrel itself, and that results in them "arcing" between the cooling holes they're inserted into... What always baffled me was that the prop-makers (alledgedly) used windshield wipers off of a Sherman tank for Vader's saber instead of regular everyday wipers.[/url]

A word that close to "father" is bound to be the actual word for father in some language. I would almost bet money on that Lucas didn't have the Dutch word in mind when he tried to come up with names.

Remember what I said about fanwank pages? Particullarly that first one... Dooku's first name is Jard? Please.

The second one is an oblique fan reference on a thread. It means nothing.

Find me three actual Sith, please. One's that have actually appeared outside some fanboys imagination. You or someone else.

Darth Scarz: "Yo, I is gonna bust a cap in that Jedi's ass.  He be dissin' me 'cause I is black."

Darth Vader: "You are mistaken.  You are not black."

Darth Scarz: "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Vader?  I is black.  I be from the ghetto."

Darth Vader: "Find a mirror and look upon yourself.  You are in fact white."

Darth Scarz: "You be dissin' me?  You best not be dissin' me.  If'n you is, I is gonna bust a cap in yo' ass, too."

Vader force chokes Scarz.

Darth Vader: "Admiral Piett, call the cleaning staff.  Have them dispose of that mess."

Admiral Piett: "Yes, my lord."

Because he didn't need one. The Darth thing was bascially a fad amonst Sith Lords. It really came into vogue post-Bane. 1000 year line of Darths.

Here are some other Sith Lords, just for fun.

Ulic Qel-Droma
Ludo Kresh
Marka Ragnos
Darth Nihilus
Darth Traya
Lumiya
Naga Sadow

Meh. That's pretty much all the important ones...

So, go nuts.
