Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o will portray space pirate Maz Kanata in "The Force Awakens." Only five baby boys were born with the name Maz in 2013, the last year more than four were recorded. The name may remain so unusual, in part, because her character was called "Rose" on set to prevent film spoilers.

Although the character is a woman, fewer than five girls have been born with the name Maz in any given year.
