    Rey might be a robot. A robot bodyguard designed to protect the young Ben Solo, which displays amazing feats of skill and dexterity perfectly all of the time (and annoyingly so). When Ben went nuts and became Kylo, the robot girl named R.E.Y. (Realistic Electronic Youngling) was sent to Jakku as nobody had the heart to deactivate her. A bit like the film A.I. when they abandon robots in the forest....

    So its settled...if you change names it means you swithched sides but if you have both like obi-ben you are grey so rey is a kira-rey and thats another hint how rey is a kenobi.

    Well that's a stretch. I think if they change rey's name they wouldnt use rey anymore. Meybe finn. Possibly. Meybe. Perhaps.

    Uhm if they do change her name to greylo or whatever. Finn would still call her rey. He is the only one meybe besides Leia that calls her rey, as of now. So yeah it would be a ben obiwan situation.

    As they've claimed to thematically linking the books to the movie development, what I've noticed in the Ahsoka novel released late last year, Ahsoka fakes her own death after Order 66 and takes on the name of Ashla while scraping out a living while newly isolated in the Force from the other living Jedi including Anakin/Darth Vader. There's also a part of Ahsoka's newly introduced backstory where she was almost abducted when she was very little. So...

    Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm publishing creative director: “[The Journey To The Last Jedi publishing program is] just a different journey than last time [with Journey To The Force Awakens]. There are still some Easter eggs in a couple of pieces that will make sense after seeing the film. But this one is more thematically tied to The Last Jedi.” (July 20, 2017)

    Pablo Hidalgo, Lucasfilm Story Group: “I think the easiest thing that people will latch their heads around[about the Lucasfilm Story Group] is like, ‘Oh, you must – you’re like a continuity cop,’ and it’s like, ‘Well, that’s not really [what] it [is],’ right. It’s more about like if you were trying to boil it down is [that] we work with any creative who is wanting to tell a story in Star Wars and we help them find the story that they want to tell but also make sure that story fits within the framework of Star Wars, right. So it’s not just about making sure the number of moons over a planet is correct, it’s more about thematically what are you going for and what’s the best way to achieve that with Star Wars? And, also, is the story that you’re telling – is it something we’ve done before or is it something that’s also actually in development somewhere else in the company [here at Lucasfilm]? So we become this sort of point that coordinates all storytelling across the board so that we don’t inadvertently tell something that’s contradictory not only from a continuity point of view but from a thematic point of view. Or if we are departing thematically for whatever reason – we understand the artistic decisions behind it – and it’s never because, ‘Oh, we didn’t know that was the right way to do it or we didn’t know – we did y because we didn’t know that x was an option.’ It’s like, ‘No, we’ll make sure that you understand that x is an option so that is shores up your reasoning to do y instead.’ So we’re really like creative facilitators and we also communicate and keep the rest of the company up to speed on story development so that when a story is locked enough – ’cause you know, we really believe these stories take time to percolate and evolve – when the story is locked enough we’ll be able to say, ‘Okay, folks in publishing or folks in toy development or folks in whatever – it’s like this is what this character is. So take that,’ because, you know, there’s always this excitement to latch onto something new but sometimes you just gotta give a story or an element or a character time to develop.” (September 16, 2016)

    When he's bleeding in the snow and she's about to kill him (voice in her head telling her to do it), he softly calls her name, then the ground splits and she snaps out of it.

    Yeah it's right after she slashes his face. He's grunting in pain too, so you can easily miss it. Not sure if he was going to attempt to convince her again (which is dumb at this point) or he saw her beginning to channel the Dark Side.

    No I heard it when watching the movie. He seems to say "Rey" when he's trying to sit up and look at her.

    I never heard that myself.

    I wonder if he was sensing Snoke nearby or actually didn't want her to give in to her hate? He never said she should join the Dark Side, just wanted to teach her the ways of the Force.

    Either way, Han, Leia, Finn, Chewie, Ren, etc.. all know her as Rey, so if her name is changed, I think it would be a waste.

    It's the name on the helmet of a guy I think. Unless that was her writing her own name? I mean at 5 I knew my name was Melanie and I could write it.
