“Kenobi” was given to me as a nickname by a girl I had a crush on as a freshman at CMU. I added the “u” for a few reasons: to make it more distinctive, because the English long “o” is actually a diphthong, and because that made it have nicer properties in my invented language of the time, Fazbabn (since unified with ixiel's Diltic to form Ralah).

I use it pretty much everywhere online (sadly, it was already taken on AIM by the time I came up with it). I've just started using the kenoubi.net domain (but the computer that hosts my website is on an internet connection that's totally hosed at the moment—it should be back up soon).

Somewhat oddly, since most people probably assume a Star Wars connection, I didn't see Star Wars at all until my late teens and have no particular attachment to it.

Arguably my personal symbol (used here in tattoo form as my userpic) represents me more, though...

Oops, that was the non-tattoo form. This is the tattoo form.

so do you know for sure that the girl in question didn't get it from star wars?

On the contrary, I know that she did. I guess my wording was misleading. My point was that for me it doesn't have any particular attachment to Star Wars.
