Star Wars Dog Names

Give your new dog a creative moniker with inspiration from this list of Star Wars dog names!

You went through the pages of dogs online. You made a list of your favorites and headed to the dog shelter. You met several furry friends before you found him. THIS is the dog for me! It’s time to bring home your new best friend but now it’s time for the hardest part: what to name your new dog!

Most adopted dogs come with an interesting name. Unless they are surrendered to the shelter, most of the time little is known about these dogs. The dog rescue needs a way to identify them and most give them silly or creative names. Others stick with boring ones. When we adopted Barkley from the Houston Humane Society his name was “Rover”. I kid you not! That name definitely didn’t fit his spunky little personality.

Choosing a name for your dog can be hard. There are so many to choose from! Do you give them a classic name like Max or something that describes their physical characteristics like Fluffy? We thought it was interesting that Barkley hardly ever barked – that’s one of the reasons we gave him the name we did!

Another way to choose a dog name is to look to pop culture. You can base the dog name off your favorite band or look for inspiration in music. Movies are also a fantastic way to choose a dog name. In our house, we love the Star Wars series! I compiled a list of 35+ Star Wars dog names from the Star Wars universe!

Most of the main character names are obvious choices. If we had to guess, our number one pick for best Star Wars dog name goes to: Chewie! A furry companion who occasionally makes funny noises? There’s no better choice! We love the double entendre that you get with a name like “Chewie”!

There are also a fair few of female Star Wars names for dogs. Our favorite here of course goes to the female heroine, Leia. Your furry friend will love this feminine name that comes with all the awesome energy Carrie Fisher brought to the role.

If you’re into the newer movies, there are several Star Wars dog names to choose from in the later releases. Rey and Kylo are the obvious choices here but don’t miss the other great choices. We also love: Poe and Finn. For sisters, we love the names Rose and Tico. Rose’s name was Paige so “Pae Pae” would be pretty cute too.

The Star Wars universe is huge (no pun intended!) and there are a lot of choices that don’t even come from the movies! Our first choice from a Star Wars TV show would be the adorable Grogu! Everyone loves baby Yoda! Mando would be another adorable dog name.

We also tried to think outside the box and come up with a few creative names. They may not be the first that come to mind but these names are also from Star Wars and would be super cute dog names! My favorite in this category is Wicket. If that name isn’t ringing a bell, he’s the adorable Ewok that helped the Rebellion in Return of the Jedi!

If you’re more into the Dark Side of the Force, we’ve got a few creative names for you to choose from here as well. You can look to the names of Sith Lords, Gangsters, and other villains. Our choice here would be “Hux”. That would be a cute doggo name. Others would be: Jabba, Dooku, and can’t forget General Grievous. Can someone please name their grumpy looking Bulldog that!?
