    That vader is the Dutch word for father???

    I am your father!
    Ik ben je vader! in Dutch

    it is true.

    I don't think Lucas used a Dutch dictionary for Darth's name hehe
    He got Vaders name from the word invader if I'm right

    I think it was intentional.

    The choice was intentional as far as I'm aware.

    My understanding was that the word "Darth" means dark--therefore, Darth Vader would literally translate to Dark Father. That could be rumor, but I remember hearing that a while ago.

    I think in the early drafts of Star Wars, Darth Vader was a Sith or Imperial general with no relation to Luke 'Starkiller'. Maybe the translation is just a coincidence.
