Star Wars Names- Language riddles?

Darth Vader = (Dark) Weather (Swedish)  I’m not sure about the roots of Darth, but it looks like a variation of Dark.

Han Solo = He Alone (Swedish/Spanish)

Luke Skywalker = English, duh.

Ben Obiwan Kenobi = Been (as in a has-been) … Cannot be

Obiwan is probably OB1, the same sort of play on letter and number sounds and 3Po/Threpio or R2/Artoo.

Obviously George Lucas stopped this naming system.  Earth common names like Leia disappear from the rest of the movie.
