Ok, so that headline might be a bit of a stretch, but in another galaxy, another time there exists a George Lucas version of episode 7, and driving that story was a 14 year old girl called, at various times Thea, Taryn and Winkie.
And things get crazier: in George's original outline, Rey was a 14 year old girl named Taryn. In later iterations, he changed her name briefly to Thea and also to, I swear, Winkie. J.J. gave her the codename Sally, then she was Kira, Echo, and finally Rey. pic.twitter.com/1Mc1uUebxw

As explained here, the name changed a number of times to Kira, Echo and finally Rey, and while Winkie might sound slightly left-of-center for a name, just remember Luke’s Tatooine nickname was Wormie.
