Now that you’re officially a cat owner, it’s time to get down to the business of choosing a name for your furry feline. This isn’t always a simple task, so it’s worth investing time in. If you’re a “Star Wars” fan, naming your cat after a character is a great idea, but with so many options, where do you start?

We’re here to help! If you’re looking for a “Star Wars” name for your cat, we compiled a list of over 120 cat names. We’ve even split them up into male names, female names, and creature, droid, and faction names to help you narrow it down. You’ll have your force-attuned cat answering to their name in no time!

How to Name Your Cat

It’s important to learn your pet’s personality before choosing a name. Some cats are calm when you first bring them home but soon become curious, energetic creatures once they become comfortable. Some are cuddlers; others like to play for hours. Some are independent souls, while others like to stay by your side for companionship. Figuring out where your cat fits in will help you choose a name that suits them.

The name that you choose for your cat should have meaning to you. Whether you name them based on their appearance or personality doesn’t matter, but it should hold some level of value. One that’s easy to say is a good idea, as you’ll be using your cat’s name for many years to come. Don’t stress about it too much either, though. While choosing a name can seem to be a daunting task, most owners simply “know” when they’ve found the right one. If you’re not sure, it just means you haven’t found it yet!
