What is a Twi’lek?

In Star Wars, the Twi’leks are an omnivorous humanoid species from the planet Ryloth. They have varying colors of skin and a pair of tentacles, called lekku, growing from their heads.

How do you name a Twi’lek?

Twi’lek names are made by combining a personal name and a clan name. Then an apostrophe is inserted in a varying spot to change the pronunciation. These names often come from the Ryl or Basic languages. When not around their own species, the names are split into traditional first and last names.
