How to Name Your Cat

Knighting your cat with their name is a task that can be as simple or as complicated as possible. 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, 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 who is shy and scared at first may grow to be a confident and outgoing cat.

Every great villain has a cat adorning their laps as they spin menacingly in their chairs. Cats get a reputation for being evil, 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 throw up 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
