Baby Yoda’s Real Name Was Revealed And Quickly Became A Meme (19 Tweets)

Ever since its premiere, The Mandalorian has kept viewers hooked with its expansive Star Wars universe set pieces. But the biggest draw was definitely a little green guy who was quickly dubbed Baby Yoda. Yes, there were some naysayers who insisted that the Baby Yoda was not actually baby Yoda, because the timeline is off, but we paid them no heed. All that matters is that the character looks like Yoda and is clearly a baby.

Unfortunately, on Friday’s episode, this illusion was permanently shattered when fan-favorite Jedi Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson, communed with Baby Yoda by using the force and discovered his real name. It’s Grogu.

Yup. Baby Yoda’s name is Grogu.

“Grogu and I can feel each other’s thoughts,” Ahsoka says. “He was raised at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, many masters trained him over the years. At the end of the Clone Wars when the Empire rose to power, he was hidden. Someone took him from the Temple. Then his memory becomes… dark. He seemed lost. Alone.”

This little speech revealed a great deal, including the likely fact that Grogu escaped all the younglings being massacred by Anakin. Let’s skip over the fact that he stood by as his friends were murdered and focus on the cute little noises he makes when anyone says “Grogu.”

Adorable. And yet, the name is not without controversy. The character may still be cute, but not many people can deal with Baby Yoda’s real name being Grogu. It just doesn’t have the same ring as “Baby Yoda.” What do you think?
