Remote ice world, and home of the secret rebel headquarters known as Echo Base prior to the Battle of Hoth. The planet is mostly uninhabitable, except for an equatorial ring where tempatures rise enough to support a few forms of life, most notably the stalwart Tauntauns and the mysterious and frightening Wampa. Day time temeratures at the equatorial belt are tolerable for humans, but at night it's deadly-cold, even machinery needs to be outfitted to handle the extreme temperatures of the ice-planet.

Hoth (Hod, Hoder, Hodur) in Norse Mythology is the blind god of Darkness and Cold. Hoth is tricked by Loki into killing the near-invincible Balder with an arrow of Mistletoe.
