130+ Star Wars Cat Names: Force Inspired Options For Your Cat

After 4 years in production, the first Star Wars film, A New Hope, was released in May 1977. More than 4 decades later, that single movie has spawned a complete empire (pun intended) full of spin-offs, TV series, and Lego sets. Few movie franchises can claim the impact and success of Star Wars, especially when it comes to how deeply so many audiences connect to them.

If you, like so many others worldwide, are fans of the galaxy far, far away, why not commemorate your Star Wars mania by choosing a Force-inspired name for your new cat? With so many memorable characters and settings to choose from, there’s sure to be a Star Wars name to fit any kitty.

To help spark your creativity, we’ve created a list of over 130 Star Wars cat names that just might be the droids you’re looking for!


How to Name Your Cat

Let’s face it, there are some cool names to be found among the Star Wars galaxies. But before you jump to lightspeed and pick one, take a little time to get to know your new kitty.

What is their personality like? Are they as cocky as Han Solo or as restless as Luke Skywalker before his adventures begin?

Also, consider your cat’s physical appearance. A completely black cat brings to mind an obvious character name, of course. Fuzzy little kittens might be the spitting image of a furry Ewok. With so many names to choose from, these observations of your new cat will help you land the perfect choice.

Star Wars Character Names

Star Wars may have gifted us with perhaps the greatest movie villain of all time, but there are so many other amazing characters to be found among the planets as well. Check out these character names to see if any suit your cat!
