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

    Amazing I came up with WillowWing, BrightDawn, CinderDusk, BreezeBranch, FeatherFern, EchoJay, BlossomBlaze, and CloudEar

  2. Spottedmask

    Actually, “moon” can be both a prefix and a suffix. In the books, there is a cat called “Moonflower”, and also one called “Ambermoon.”

  3. Larkspurblaze

    This is a great list of names! (Just one suggestion: I know this isn’t very common in the books bit maybe more unheard-of suffixes, like astilbe, or maybe anemone.)

  4. Willowheart

    Also feather can be a prefix and suffix. In the books, there is a cat called “Crowfeather”, and also there is “Feathertail”.

  5. Leopardfur

    I love this so much! I was going to write my own series for warriors but had to make up a ton of cats names, it was really hard until I found this. Now I just look at prefixes and suffixes and match them up and make names. Now I have done all four clans, Starclan, the dark forest, and place of no stars! Thanks for making this so much easier, I appreciate it

  6. Dawnstar

    This is so helpful because me and my friend are writing our own Warriors series and we needed some new names

  7. Warriorcatfan

    I’m writing my own series, though i feel mean bc it feels like I’m copying so many things even though I’m not, and I love the names I came up with Branchpelt, Honeywish, lionsun, silverwish, and a lot more, thank you sooo much

  8. Moonstar

    I love this!! I’m writing my own Warriors series (Next Gen) and it helps come up with names. the only thing, is I have Shadowfall, Thunderheart, Windfire, and Rivertail, in respect for the original leaders!! I get the sacred thing, but it makes it really hard to come up with names without using those four Prefixes/suffixes. I ended up having a Lionheart, and Sandstorm in respect for the OG’s.

  9. Moonstar

    WarrIorcatfan, I get you, I’m writing my own series and I feel like i’m copying sooooo much!! It’s turned out really well though!!

  10. Silkypelt

    I do warriors fanfic, and it hurts so much! I feel like I’m reusing names and copying the books, but this helped me a bunch!

  11. Silkypelt

    FYI wish can be a prefix, as one of Yellowfang’s kits was named Wishkit…She was stillborn, though… :(

  12. Shadow Withered Bonnie

    Dapple is a Prefix! Dappletail! Brindleface, Longtail, Dustpelt, Flower could be a Prefix and Suffix, Russetfur, Sagewhisker, Goosefeather! Forgetting many names…old add them in!
