Ben Quadinaros participated in the pod race that freed Anakin Skywalker from a life as a slave. Short for Benjamin, Bennet or Benedict, the name Ben has steadily decreased in popularity in the United States over the last century. It was the 43rd most popular boys name in 1889, but ranks No. 723 today.
