Comments for the name Leia

Comments for LEIA (2):

Oddly enough, the Greek word for 'princess' is 'vasileia'. I think Lucas might have taken the name "Leia" as a contraction of the word, as well as making it a variant spelling of "Leah".

Not sure Behind the name needs a separate listing from Leia 1.
Lucas probably just used the existing name like he used Luke. (which doesn't have two separate entries.
