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

    Another sneak peek:
    Wrenstar was boiling with anger. “Why did you attack another apprentice?” his voice sweetened dangerously. Yellowpaw stood firmly, confidence spilling from his mind. “Because, she threatened to lead my littermate Wildpaw to Addergrass to get him poisoned.” Wolfpaw stiffened as the lie went through her ears. What?! She hadn’t said anything of the sort!

  18. Acornstar

  19. Acornstar

    Guys I just got the greatest idea to make a Chatclan fanfic! It’s called Crow’s call( if anyone has any other ideas for a title please tell me becuz this name sucks). But Chatclan will be Crowclan . Sneak peak
    Dovefrost looked into her kit’s blind eyes. “Do you think she’ll be okay Tigerblaze?” she asked her mate hoping he’d say yes. “I’m not sure” he replied. Bluebellkit lay on her mothers back coughing. “Cats of the clan” Acornstar called out. All the cats padded to the Crow rock. “We have five kits that are ready to be apprentices. First we have Ivykit who is now Ivypaw and his mentor will be… Cloudcreek.” Ivypaw touched noses with his mentor. “Next up” Frostystar started again” We have Sunnykit who is now Sunnypaw. His mentor will be…me” Sunnypaw shouted with excitement and touched noses with Frostystar. Then came Jaykit who’s mentor is Tigerblaze. Then Aspenkit who’s mentor is Mosswish.
