I just noticed how similar there names are in formatting I mean they both have a Hyphenated first name and a separate last name and their accents are similar. So do they share a common home world?

According to Wookieepedia (referencing the book Ultimate Star Wars), in canon Qui-Gonn Jinn's home planet is Coruscant, but Obi-Wan Kenobi's home planet is Stewjon (Source, referencing here). Apparently at a convention, Lucas joked that this was Obi-Wan's homeworld, so if Lucas said it is, I think we can accept that!

    Ultimate Star Wars was published this year with reference to Force Awakens => probably canon Dec 17, 2015 at 6:32
  • Regarding the other site, as far as I'm concerned, if Lucas said that is is homeworld, then it is Dec 17, 2015 at 6:34
  • I remember reading in one of the books (canon because this was recently and that's all I've been reading) that Obi-Wan spoke with a "Coruscanti accent." Presumably because he was essentially raised there and picked it up from Qui-Gon. Dec 17, 2015 at 15:01
