Is season 3 of The Mandalorian's prettiest character suffering from the Grogu conundrum?

In The Mandalorian season 3, episode 8, "The Return," Grogu underwent a dramatic shift, yet this change is inconsistent with Mandalorian tradition. While substantial character growth is required in a season finale, The Mandalorian often does a far better job of staying true to established continuity. The series has consistently exhibited respect for the Mandalorian way of life as depicted in the films, television programs, and even the previous Expanded Universe, now known as Legends. This raises the question of why The Mandalorian chooses Grogu in the season 3 finale in such an odd manner.

The first two seasons of the program focused on the friendship between Grogu, a young person of the same species as Jedi Master Yoda, and Din Djarin, a Mandalorian bounty hunter played by Pedro Pascal. However, the painful breakup of the pair was depicted in the season 2 finale as Grogu went to train with Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

Given that most people would have expected him to be called Grogu Djarin, Grogu was formally adopted by Din Djarin and given the name Din Grogu. All other known Mandalorians, like as Jango Fett-Boba Fett, Ursa Wren-Sabine Wren, etc., have held what would essentially be the surname. Although other characters like Bo-Katan Kryze and Paz Vizsla have maintained their ancestry, Mandalorian houses and clans play a significant role in society. Grogu departing from this practice seems to disrupt continuity and causes unnecessary confusion.

Although Djarin and Grogu have a strong friendship, some fans feel that Grogu's presence distracts from the primary plot. They contend that Grogu's reappearance has diminished the significance of the season 2 finale and that Djarin would have been better off with a different driving force.

It will be intriguing to watch how Grogu's new moniker will impact their future connection and what it might mean for Din's character growth. He had earlier recommitted to the Mandalorian Creed, promising to never take off his helmet again, despite finally being able to do so for Grogu. Ragnar's rededication in the Living Waters of Mandalore did not include a particular vow from the Armorer to remove his helmet, but the Children of the Watch have started to accept Mandalorians who do so. Although though Grogu's name change doesn't quite make sense and seems to go against Mandalorian history, it's still a positive change that perfectly concludes The Mandalorian season 3.
