Warrior Cat Names – 2 Simple Steps for an Awesome Name

warrior cat names

Looking to create your own unique Warrior cat name? Here’s a quick, easy tutorial to get started!

Warriors is a series of fantasy novels that follow the adventures of four Clans of wild cats. The cats in these books come from different Clans each with their own territories and skills. Warrior cat names follow specific patterns that you can use to come up with a name for your own cat.

Starting Your Warrior Cat Name

Warrior Cat names have two parts to a name that are joined together. First you’ll need a prefix to use for your cat. Prefixes are often:

  • Something about their appearance: White, Tiny, Tiger, Spotted, Dark, Raven, Yellow
  • Something related to nature: Willow, Rose, Flame, Storm, Lightning, Ivy, Lion

Completing Warrior Cat Names

Next you’ll need to pick a suffix to complete your Warrior Cat name. These are usually something that matches what you chose for the first part of your name. For example if you chose ‘Tiger’ the last part might be ‘claw’ or ‘tail’. There are also a few suffixes that have meanings you can use: star is for a leader, kit is for a young cat, and paw is an apprentice.

Alternatively, cats without a Clan just stick to the first part of their name, which is also a great way to name your cat. For example:

  • Bella
  • Birdy
  • Cody
  • Cora
  • Flora
  • Flower
  • Nutmeg
  • Pixie
  • Ruby
  • Socks
  • Violet

Note: Warrior Cat names should never include the following: spirit, shadow, thunder, river, wind, and moon as they are reserved as sacred.

Some Warrior Cat Names Examples

Here are a few examples from the books and made up that might help you get going with creating a name:

  • Tigerstar
  • Cinderpelt
  • Stormcloud
  • Dewpetal
  • Redtail
  • Firepaw
  • Sunnytail
  • Nightstar
  • Bluestar
  • Graystripe
  • Tigerheart
  • Redstar
  • Hawkheart
  • Honeypaw
  • Snowdrop

  1. Wolfwing

    *Sniffs and licks him, gently.* Ok… *Puts the flower behind her ear.* Thank you. Come on. You look tired. *Takes him to camp and gets his food and water before licking his pelt, clean*

  2. Wolfwing

    `I don’t know. I don’t feel as lovey-dovey for you as I was, but I still care for you and I am very affectionate for you!! *Pounces on him and bats his face.*

  3. Moonwish

    As I hide in a bush, out of sight of Wolfwing, my scent masked with lavender, and smile, happy for my kit. ‘Honestly, they’re adorable, but I’ll never tell them that.’ I suppress the rising purr in my throat and pad back to the camp to check on Ospreylight.

  4. Ospreylight

    My dreams are filled with nightmares. I slice open Robinsong’s throat and blood pours out of it, drowning me. I choke on it’s rank scent and saltiness. The smell of death surrounds me, and I can’t breathe. I’m not sure if I choke or drown first, but I feel death creeping towards me, but I wake with a surprised yowl before it can take hold. I glance around and realize that I’m safe. ‘You don’t have to be scared anymore, she’s forgiven you, and hopefully that goes for her kits as well.’ I sigh. ‘Then why can’t I shake the feeling that there’s high tension between us?’ I shake my head. ‘I’m imagining things, I must be.’ I turn to nudge Wolfwing awake, but she isn’t there. ‘Huh, a little odd, but I’m sure she’s fine. Wolfwing is a strong cat.’ I try to call up one of Moonwish’s memories of her, but find merely a faded image of the two cats hanging out. ‘They must almost entirely be gone.’ I think with a sigh. ‘Moonwish has lived a wonderful life. Time for me to try to as well.’ And with that, I pad out of the den to go in search of Wolfwing.

  5. Reedvine

    I let out a huge yawn. I couldn’t sleep that night, as usual. I couldn’t help thinking of my siblings, the siblings I had left behind. I shook my pelt. ‘You know they’ll be fine, Reed, they always are. You have no reason to worry.’ I shook my head. ‘No, I’m Reedvine now. I’ve left that horrid mess of rogues behind, I’m a loyal warrior of EmberC l a n.’ I tried my hardest to convince myself, but I just couldn’t seem to shake off the memories of my past. The memories as a rogue, causing trouble for c l a ns, had crowded my mind and memories back then. I don’t know why they had, they just had. I had decided to pad out into the forest, letting my paws guide me to my destination. I walked through the forest, the moon almost full, and found myself in a serene clearing. All around me had been lush beech trees and bright green grass, despite the fact that it was nearly leaf-fall. I looked around in awe, there was even a little spring that weaved it’s way through the small clearing. The water parted around a tiny island where a beautiful white flower sat. A shaft of moonlight fell over the flower and it seemed to glow and sparkle. Curious, I cautiously padded towards it. I bent over to take a sniff and my nose touched the beautiful flower. I suddenly felt a chill from my nose to my tail tip, and then my body slipped into sleep. I woke up in a forest as lush and beautiful as the one the flower had sat in. I looked around and spotted blurry starry figures. “Hello?” I asked nervously. The starry figures didn’t respond. One stepped forward and spoke, but it’s words were as warped and gurgled as it’s figure. “I can’t understand you!” I cried. The cat spoke again. It sounded something like “Danger is coming, family and friends are now foes, you must face them with-” After that the words were too gurgled and messy for me to understand. I began to ask the cat to repeat it’s words but it instead stepped forward and touched it’s nose to mine. I saw images, I didn’t know what they were at first and then quickly realized that they were memories. ‘What is this cat trying to tell me?’ I soon made out what was going on, and the memory became clearer. “Willow, are you ready?” An oddly familiar cat asked. I nodded. ‘Bacon!’ I realized, recognizing the leader of the group of rogues I’d been in. “I am always ready, sir.” I said, but not in my own voice. Bacon hissed. “That’s what you said last time, can you prove it?” I nod. “Then you know what to do.” Bacon said. “Choose someone.” I think for a moment and then point my paw at Bacon. “Good luck then, Willow.” He growls. I launch myself at Bacon and death creeps in around me. The memory fades and I’m left staring at the cat in front of me. “Willow? Is that you?” I ask, my eyes welling up. The cat nods. I nuzzle my nose deep into her pelt, taking in her scent. “Oh dear sister, how I’ve missed you.” I realize that she’s clearer now. ‘StarC l a n really does exist.’ I realize. ‘That’s how I can see her.’ I smile. “Thank you.” I say. The brown she-cat nods and dips her head. “I’ll see you soon, Reedvine.” And the StarC l a n clearing fades. I wake at in the lush clearing and head home.

    Hey, Pineleaf!!
    I’m a silver-gray she-cat with midnight black eyes. I’m very thin and swift with black wings. I’m also very graceful and fierce. I used to live with wolves. They live at the edge of a mountain. Very far away.

    April 14, 2021 at 9:19 am
    Hey Pineleaf!
    I’m a multi-colored she-cat. I am a good fight, climber, and hunter. I also have three kits that are now all warriors.

    HI Wildstrak and wolfwing. Sorry i haven’t been on. Can Hollykit become an apprentice to your medicine cat?

  7. Moonwish

    “I would offer to take them as my apprentice but, well, I’m dead so…” I say with a heavy sigh. “Oh how I miss having an apprentice.”

  8. Pineleaf

    Ok. Sunsetstar and Wolfwing, i know i haven’t been here long but i was hoping my daughter could become a medican cat aprentice. Please consider it.

  9. Thrushclaw

  10. Moonwish

    Pineleaf, I think that the cats you really need to talk to are the medicine cats, thus your options are Goldenburr and Shadowglade.

  11. Moonwish

    Hi, Thrushclaw, I’m a white she-cat with light gray spots, silvery-blue eyes, and the power to control water, the power of which can be monitored by the visibility of a light gray crescent moon symbol on my left paw pad. My current residence is StarC l an and I am a trained medicine cat. I have had three kits, all of which are full warriors and my sister is Ravenwillow.

  12. Moonwish

    Hi, Thrushclaw! I’m a white she-cat with light gray spots, silvery-blue eyes, and the ability to control water. My current residence is StarC l a n. I am also trained medicine cat and have no living siblings, and three living kits who are warriors. Nice to meet you!

  13. Moonwish

    Hi Thrushclaw! I’m a white she-cat with light gray spots, silvery-blue eyes, and the ability to control water. I currently reside in Star C l a n and am a trained medicine cat. I have four kits, and no living siblings.

  14. Silverwind

    Oh, hi Thrushclaw! Nice to meet you! I’m a silver-white she-cat with sky blue eyes with darker blue flecks, and I am clever, daring, courageous, kind, and swift. I don’t have a mate or littermates, too…

    April 16, 2021 at 11:25 am
    I am on!! Ospreylight, I deeply forgive you.

    This wasn’t me I don’t use this OV anymore…what am I forgiving Lspreylight for? If it’s for killing my eldest kit, I’m not ready to forgive

  17. Ospreylight

    I lower my head. “Oh, so you don’t forgive me? R-Right. I… I guess I’ll just go then.” I say, padding back to the medicine den to see if Wolfwing was there to help me with my exercises.

  18. Spiritseer

    I wake up in a den…I smell the scent of other cats , c l a n cats…I turn around and see a calico she cat with amber eyes watching me carefully. “ I’m Sunsetseer “ the she cat said. “ I’m Spiritseer” I replied. The she cat stepped backwards right into a charcoal Tom with crow wings and green eyes who chuckled. “ Sunsetseer, calm down, this cat had a nasty fall” looks at me “ I’m Shadowglade”

  19. Falcon

    Osprey, your my sister, my favorite one, but you killed my ekdest kit and it’s not something I can easily forgive…I still love you though

  20. Pineleaf
