Opinion: Kylo Ren should have taken the Skywalker name

For a movie with some good potential Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, turned out to be mostly disappointing. Not only was it disappointing as a film but to the end of the Skywalker arc. For me the most disappointing moment and one that quite frankly irritated me the most was this scene right here:

Rey Skywalker. REY SKYWALKER!!! What in the world! While it may make some sense it did not make total sense. In my opinion it should not have happened. If anyone should have taken the Skywalker name it should have been Kylo Ren, aka Ben Solo.

My reasoning for Kylo Ren who became Ben Solo during the course of the movie and became redeemed like his grandfather Darth Vader for taking the Skywalker is because it was his bloodline.

The story was the Skywalker families. Not a person who took a name that she had no connection to. Ben Solo who was the child of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa, who as it turns out was a Skywalker, it would have helped the story to have Ben Solo take the Skywalker name.

Even if Ben Solo still died he would have done so a Skywalker like his grandfather before him. This would have better connected the story as well as have Ben Solo embrace his true self.

Taking the Skywalker name would have had a deeper impact had a redeemed Kylo Ren taken it as his own name. I think this would have helped the Sequel Trilogy that turned out to be a bit of a mess.

It also would have be better to take for the Star Wars fan base and not help send it into a fury of anger and disappointment. For a movie that had a pretty solid opening scene Rey taking the Skywalker name was the final nail in the coffin to the Trilogy that most fans want to forget.
