First naming trend, the nightbrother names...

So far we only know the names of four nightbrothers, but all of them share a very animalistic and quite violent and bloody trend in their names.

So far we have Maul, Savage, Feral, and Viscus.
Maul- verb
(of an animal) wound (a person or animal) by scratching and tearing: the herdsmen were mauled by lions.

Savage- adjective
(of an animal or force of nature) fierce, violent, and uncontrolled: tales of a savage beast | a week of savage storms.

Feral- adjective
(esp. of an animal) in a wild state, esp. after escape from captivity or domestication: a feral cat.

Viscus- noun
an internal organ in the main cavities of the body, esp. those in the abdomen, e.g., the intestines.

So yeah... Nightbrother names! Would not be surprised if the next one we were introduced to was named "Rabid"

Next naming trend is for the Sith. The most common thing used in a Sith name aside from the title of Darth is the root "mal."

There are four legitimate Sith names with "mal" at the beginning; Darth Malak, Darth Malgus, Darth Maladi, and Darth Maleval. And two fake Sith names in the mythos had "mal" heading them off as well; Darth Malitiae and Darth Malus. Even in an RP on here somebody's character is named Darth Malikus, and a character in my fanfic is named Darth Malvot.

The funny thing about that is that the latin root "mal" means bad. So essentially these Sith's names mean "Dark Bad Guy"... how cliche.

There is another name trend among Sith, this one being less popular, but still noticeable. A few names of Sith contain "Teneb" in them.

We have two birth names, Tenebrae and Teneb Kel, and one Sith name, Darth Tenebrous.

"Teneb" is a root that seems to be in words related to shadow and darkness, with "Tenebrae" being latin for shadows and darkness, and "Tenebrous" meaning dark, shadowy or obscure. So basically we have some Sith who follow the Dark Side of the Force that were seemingly named after darkness and shadows. Also pretty cliche.

Now as you all know, at the end of the Sith Inquisitor storyline in SWTOR, you get one of three names.

If you follow the Dark Side path, your character is given the name "Nox," if you follow the Light Side, your character is given the name "Imperius," and if you stay neutral, your character is given the name "Occulus."

What I find interesting is that all three of these names seem to be spells in Harry Potter, with "Nox" being Nox, "Imperius" being the Imperius Curse, and "Occulus" being Occulus reparo. I find this interesting given that these are all spells in Harry Potter, and the Sith Inquisitor seems to be a mage class fighter.

Next up is the name of the Duchess of Mandalore, Satine. I find a very interesting possible connection going on here.

I watched Moulin Rouge in a film class at school, and the love interest's name is Satine. Basically, a Duke is trying to court Satine, but she falls in love with Ewan McGreggor's character and eventually dies in his arms.

In TCW, the character Satine is a Duchess, a female duke, and falls in love with Obi-wan, who was played by Ewan McGreggor in the Prequel Trilogy, and eventually she dies in his arms.

Noticing a connection here? As with the last one, not sure if this was intentional, but it does seem suspicious.
