There's a lot of information about the porgs, which are bird-like creatures native to Ahch-To. Here's a fairly detailed summary much of which is learned from marketing and merchandising material.

As we can see in the trailer, at least one porg goes for a ride on the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca.

Are the porgs all nameless animals or do they rise to the level of, for example pets or companions, garnering names or nicknames, etc?

I.e. Does all the merchandise available now represent a particular porg or just any porg?

    Hmm. Seems very Future work-y to me. Hard to answer now, trivially easy to answer after the film comes out... – Valorum Nov 21 '17 at 17:30

    A glance at upcoming merchandise will reveal two things: The packages all just say "Porg", with no specific name — and there's more than one porg depicted in merchandise, such as in this two-pack of porgs to display with the Black Series action figures: bleedingcool.com/2017/10/30/black-series-porg-coming-next-year – recognizer Nov 21 '17 at 18:50

    @recognizer: Those are good points, worthy of an answer. – ThePopMachine Nov 21 '17 at 19:02

    @KaiQing - It keeps adding them because kids like them. The reason you find it annoying is because you aren't their key demographic, hence they don't care less whether you like something or not. – Valorum Nov 21 '17 at 21:30

    @KaiQing -I know at least one young viewer who, despite all attempts to educate them about commercialism and what a good film looks like, think that Jar Jar is actually quite funny and probably the best part of Phantom Menace. – Valorum Nov 21 '17 at 23:56

None of the porgs in the film are given a name.*

I have not seen any named porg for sale.

So at this moment I believe they are all generic.

* Chewbacca may call one of them dinner but I don't think that counts.

Based on the movie, there may now be at least one family of porgs nesting in the Millennium Falcon (was a scene in the movie). None are ever named, although it might be that Chewbacca has taken a shining to one in particular.
