The Mandalorian Finally Revealed Baby Yoda's Real Name And Backstory In 'The Jedi'

Baby Yoda's Name Is...Grogu?

This is going to take a lot of "getting used to it" time. While "Baby Yoda" isn't exactly utter brilliance in and of itself, its descriptive nature and mental callback to the character Yoda give it utility. But the name Grogu is something else altogether. It's pretty goofy in a fun way, but thankfully not so goofy that it dips into absurdity. With two syllables, a hard "O" sound and a vowel at the end, Grogu is basically patterned like the name Yoda, which definitely helps. As well, the vibrant way Grogu reacted whenever Mando said his given name was peak cuteness, and that also aids in accepting it. I'll probably still use the names interchangeably, though, since I don't actually want to stop saying Baby Yoda.
