Same here, but the old names are easier to remember. :P

After play Decipher's SW Customizable Card Game, I can't go back to the old times any more... it's either Myo or Abyssian or Momaw or Ithorian, Dice Ibegon, Myoom Oniith etc...
Lucky for me- aliens are my favorite part of Star Wars

I have no sentimental attachment to the vintage names, and they've been Momaw Nadon, Ponda Baba, etc. for as long as I've been associated with SW. That said, I have no problem with the vintage names coexisting as in-universe nicknames.

I grew up with the Kenner figures, so I still call them Hammerhead, Walrus Man, etc.  And for the most part I call PT characters by nicknames, usually having to do with some distinguishing feature.  I call Ki Adi Mundi "Cone Head Guy" just because, for instance.
