It appeared in Star Wars: Clone Wars "chapter 22" and was named "the purple planet" due to its purplish hue.

The planet was used as a battle site between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, so I would assume that after battling on a planet, they may have given it a more meaningful name?

  • It seems that Star Wars wiki does not have a name for it besides Purple planet.

    @SaturnsEye "Nexium" is an acid reflux medicine commonly called the Purple Pill. Matt was making a joke.

This planet appears to be Xagobah, a fungal world. Wookieepedia describes it at "shrouded in purplish mists...caused by spores and pollen."

Boba Fett: A New Threat, by Elizabeth Hand relates the battle from Fett's perspective as he attempts to collect a bounty on CIS leader Wat Tambor who is fortified inside a bioengineered fortress termed "Mazariyan".
