Dog Names Based on Star Wars, by Janice Jones |Published 12-12-2022
Does this sound like you? You’ve seen every Star Wars movie, read the books and comics, know every movie character invented by the franchise started by George Lucas and have watched reruns of both live-action and animated series and now you are getting a new puppy that needs a name.
OK, so I’ll admit, I love Star Wars and remember seeing the very first Star Wars as a very young person on the day it was released to theaters. (OK, so I am totally dating myself).
I was amazed that puppy buyers started telling me they want to name their puppy, Chewbacca, Chewie for short, or Vadar for that sweet innocent black puppy who is less than 2 pounds.
These puppy buyers (Shih Tzu breed) who convinced me that their puppy looked just like an Ewok are the inspiration for this post.
Before I give you my list, I want to introduce, Obi Wan Tzu Nobi and Princess Leia, my own Star Wars dogs.
Star Wars Characters Based on All Movies
Star Wars, a world wide pop-culture phenomenon includes much more than movies. Television series, video games, novels, comic books, and even theme park attractions are all part of this fictional universe. I have looked at all of these when compiling this list.
No, it is not a complete list of characters, just names that sound like they should be a dog name.

There was the original, the Prequel, the Sequel, and some miscellaneous anthology and animated films all of which were used to compile this list of great dog names based on Star Wars.
