Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens : Ben & Luke

Ben & Luke

Why are they only characters in Star Wars with normal human names? Also is the 'Ben' in Ben Solo short for Benjamin?

Re: Ben & Luke

"Ben" must be for Obi-Wan, who was known on Tattooine as "Ben Kenobi".

A name that neither Han or Leia knew him by, BTW, only Luke ever called the old Jedi "Ben".
