Do you have a dog who’s strong in The Force? Is your pup a Padawan Jedi-in-training or a budding Sith Lord on the path to the dark side? Whatever the case may be, your pooch could find a great name inspired by the Star Wars galaxy.
Since the first Star Wars film debuted in 1977, fans have fallen in love with the heroes and villains who introduced them to The Force, lightsabers, TIE fighters, and so much more. If you pick a dog name from this saga, you certainly wouldn’t be the only pet parent to do so.
Whether you’re celebrating Star Wars Day on May 4th — “May the Fourth be with you” — or waiting for the newest Star Wars tv series, or just looking for a name for your new best friend, here are a few of the best dog names from the Star Wars saga.

Rogue One (2017) and Solo (2018) take place in the same universe as the main saga and feature some of the same characters but aren’t considered “Episodes” in the series. Instead, each is “A Star Wars Story.” There could be more of these films in the future.
If you can’t find a dog name from the list above, check out the Star Wars Extended Universe. There are plenty of comics, novels, shows, and additions to the galaxy not included in the main saga.
