The Top “Star Wars” Inspired Dog Names

Marking the fourth (force) of the month, Banfield Pet Hospital is unveiling the top pet names inspired by George Lucas’ iconic Star Wars universe. As the largest veterinary practice in the world, Banfield and its internal research team, Banfield Applied Research & Knowledge (BARK), pulled from its extensive database of nearly 2.9 million pet patients to identify the most popular names as well as the practice’s selections for the most creative names.

“With nearly 25,000 pets in our database named after characters from the Star Wars franchise, we are excited that our clients are just as enthusiastic as we are about the saga,” said Ari Zabell, DVM, senior director of client experience and advocacy at Banfield Pet Hospital. “We have always appreciated how creative our clients can be when naming their pets; it’s a great reflection of their personality as well as their hobbies.”

In addition to working with clients excited about Star Wars, Banfield has some extreme fans of its own – several associates have shared their passion for pets as well as their passion for the films by naming their pets after famous characters – including two newly adopted pups named Yoda and Solo and a gecko, Luke Skywalker.

When it comes to cats and dogs, Chewy is the most popular Star Wars character, with everyone’s favorite Wookiee representing nearly 3,500 pets. While most of the top five names represent rebel heroes, pet owners turned to the dark side for the fifth most popular name, Vader. It is worth noting that the nemesis of many Star Wars fans, Jar Jar Binks, has also inspired 17 pets named “Jar Jar.”
