100+ Star Wars Cat Names: Great Ideas for Your incredible Cat

When you’re faced with the endless options of possible cat names, gathering inspiration from your interests and passions is an excellent place to start. If you are an avid fan of the “Star Wars” franchise, giving your new cat a “Star Wars” name can express your interests and offer a fun talking point with visitors.

The extraordinary world of “Star Wars” has a history almost as rich as the earth’s! You’ll have no shortage of name options here.

How to Name Your Cat

Knighting your cat with their name is a task that can be simple or complicated. You can pick a cute name from a list in a few minutes, or you can spend some time getting to know your new cat’s personality first, giving them a name that reflects their traits.

It can take some time for a cat to settle into a new home, so their unique characteristics may take some time to show. A cat that is shy and scared at first may grow to be a confident and outgoing cat. A sweet, quiet cat may turn into a monster at the crack of dawn on weekends, so you might want a villainous name!

Masculine Star Wars Cat Names

Cats have little concept of gender identity beyond their biological functions. Your big tomcat probably won’t care if you name him Princess Leia, but then you may have guests call him a pretty girl. If you want it to be clear that your cat is a boy, assigning a masculine name is recommended.

  • Anakin
  • Luke
  • Seeker
  • Ezra
  • Ben Solo
  • Bren
  • Storm
  • Alpha
  • Hamill
  • Ringo
  • Finn

  • Bodhi
  • Lando
  • Alistar
  • Alfonzo
  • Rex
  • Zeb

Feminine Star Wars Cat Names

A female cat will show few feminine traits, at least as designated by humans. To let the world know that she is a gorgeous and powerful lady cat, a female name may be more her style. Don’t let these beautiful names deceive you—the “Star Wars” Universe is full of fearless women.

  • Zorii
  • Rey
  • Sky
  • Ventress
  • Ashla
  • Hera
  • Leia
  • Maz

Dark Side Star Wars Cat Names

Every great villain has a cat adorning their lap as they spin menacingly in their chair. Cats have a reputation for being evil, and while we believe this isn’t true, we can see how they have gotten that stereotype! Early morning awakenings, house plant destruction, and expertly placed vomit are all cat behaviors that have humans suspicious of feline intentions. If your cat is extra mischievous, a dark side name may fit them perfectly.

  • Vader
  • Sidious
  • Palpatine
  • Kylo
  • Ren
  • Bogan
  • Sith
  • Plagueis
  • Dooku
  • Bossk
  • Thrawn
  • Revan
  • Tobias
  • Boba
  • Jango
  • Saxon

Light Side Star Wars Cat Names

Some cats go against the stereotypical grain and are sweet little angels. A name inspired by a light side character of “Star Wars” can be the perfect fit for your hero or heroine who can do no wrong.

  • Jedi
  • Yoda
  • Obi
  • Kenobi
  • Padawan
  • Jinn
  • Organa
  • Solo
  • Ahsoka
  • Padme
  • Cere
  • Jolee
  • Poe
  • Biggs

Final Thoughts

“Star Wars” is a stand-out franchise for many reasons, but what we really like about it is the massive array of dynamic characters who have peculiar names and personal backstories. Their fun monikers make great choices for our funky felines, and there’s something to suit every cat, whether you want a silly name like Porg or Chewie or a serious one like Leia or Sidious.
