Possible answer: The name is a variation of the Hebrew word Caleb which means "Dog." Caleb is also found in the Torah as being one of the obedient Hebrew spies. The other was Judah (Yoda?). In both cases of Caleb the emphasis is on obedience possibly suggested by the name "Obi Wan" or obedient one.

Anakin appears to mean Warrior. The name Anakin was created by director George Lucas as a character for his fictional movies, Star Wars. After the production of Star Wars the name Anakin has become increasingly popular. Anakin is based of the surname Annakin which means the pure and sacred.

Besides "Obi" in Japanese and all other separate meanings, specifically for the entire name "Obi Wan Kanobi", used by George Lucas, I believe it to be a little more simple, although much more ingenious...

Every airplane has two devices used as a short-range radio navigation system, enabling the aircraft to determine it's position and stay on course by receiving radio signals. These devices are named "Omni-Bearing Indicator", also known as "VOR" (VHF Omnidirectional Range), and you select the frequencies by turning a knob in each unit. Select the "origin" frequency in the first unit, and the "destination" frequency in the second unit. When in flight, these devices make sure your aircraft is on the right course from "origin" to "destination".

So, you have "Omni-Bearing Indicator 1 knob" and "Omni-Bearing Indicator 2 knob". Then, just imagine the pronounciation of the first one...

"OBI 1 Knob"...
