Taika Waititi Knows Baby Yoda’s Name But Won’t Tell

Baby Yoda. The Child. Whatever you call him, chances are you think he’s pretty darn adorable. So adorable that he’s taken the world by storm. Ask anyone out there, and chances are they know who he is, even if they haven’t touched the Disney+ original series The Mandalorian. But if there’s one thing we’re missing from the lil guy, it’s his name. As of right now, we don’t know the name of the thing.

As I mentioned above, Baby Yoda is the name has elected for the character, and internally at Disney (and in the script), he’s referred to as The Child, which also makes sense given his role in the story. For his part, the Mandalorian himself calls the Child, “the kid,” so there’s really no consistency at any point.

But does Lucasfilm have an actual name for the character? The New York Times reporter Kyle Buchanan caught up with director and star of the series Taika Waititi, and it sounds like the guy knows what the character’s actual name is.

“I also asked Taika about Baby Yoda, since he directed the MANDALORIAN finale. ‘He’s not named Baby Yoda!’ Taika insisted. There is a name yet to be revealed, and Taika knows it but won’t hint. ‘I’ll wait for Favreau to give that away.’”

Even after the conclusion of the finale of the show, audiences still have no idea what to actually call Baby Yoda. I can’t help but wonder how long it’ll be until we get the kid’s name, and when we do, will it actually live on, or will audiences continue to refer to him as Baby Yoda?
