Maybe It's Not Referring to Someone Different
Way too early prediction: Skywalker doesn't refer to this character or that one, but the new order of force-using galactic protectors going forward. It fits with the 3rd movie title sequence that way:

Rise of the skywalker is an ugly title, and I really hope they dont redeem kylo, but the smell of redemption is in the air...— Sarah 🤙🏼 (@damainwayne) April 12, 2019
Star Wars theory: assuming JJ does keep the spirit of TLJ, The Rise of Skywalker title is going to refer to Rey building a new order with the memories/teachings/whatever of Luke, and no one is going to actually be blood related cool send tweet— Fructose Friend (@WinterOstritch) April 12, 2019

The Rise of Skywalker is a good title IMHO.— Bearcat 🍺 (@BearcatOnBeer) April 12, 2019
"The Rise of Skywalker" is.... maybe the least immediately logical title to follow Last Jedi with. Can't really be judged until we know how the film contextualises it but considering how well that film moved everything along, plz stay off your bullshit JJ— Hugo (@Hugo__OS) April 12, 2019
