In at least one case I personally had to change one character's name twice, my first one to get his legacy, and I'd been subscribed since a week after beta; and he had to change when I did the voluntary transfer and then again when they merged more people onto that server.

I'm pretty sure it was entirely random and those who kept most of their names just got lucky.

NONE of my names I had to change were in any way related to star wars lore, at least not that I know of. I had to change "Myles" "Daman" "Cryss" "Marsh" "Nil" "Lethe" and several others -- Daman and Lethe being fairly high level and played since the first week of the game... I don't care for the alt letters so I mostly just changed or added a letter (Daman became Daiman, Cryss became Tryss, Nil became Nilu) or just gave them a completely different name with the same basic theme (Lethe became Nepenthe).
...they'd never come to see me in this dive, where bikers stare at cowboys, who are laughing at the hippies, who are praying they'll get out of here alive...
