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

    And now a Sneek Peak of Crow’s Call:
    Acornstar lay in his den looking at the wall. “What’s wrong my friend?” asked Frostystar.
    “I just don’t know what’s coming for the clan” he admitted. “What makes you think something bad will happen?” she wondered. “Well, today I was out hunting when I saw… crowfood. I think it is a bad omen” he explained. For a moment Frostystar looked confused, but then she spoke. “Well you know who to go to for that question” she meowed. Acornstar got to is paws and went over to Darkfur’s den.
    “Hello Acornstar, how may I help you?” she mewed while mixing herbs. “Um well I wanted to tell you something that happend today” he started. “I was out hunting and I found..” he gulped. “Crow-food” he mewed. “What!” she yowled. “This must be a bad omen….”
    Do ya like it?

  2. Frostystar

    I don’t think they are staying.
    So i have some of chapter one done, here it is

    A cool breeze blew across the hollow, swishing the reeds. Paw steps pattered down a slope as cats made tier way down. When all the cats were seated and comfortable the first cat spoke.
    “Great change is coming to ShadowClan, greater than they could possibly imagine,” the cat’s voice was powerful and deep. As the other cats muttered he spoke again, “if ShadowClan cannot change with it, they will fall, and without ShadowClan all the others will fall, too.”
    “How will they know,” a small she-cat asked nervously, “if they don’t know, how will they change with it?”
    “A cat will come, a mist that will refresh them and clear the way to change.” More cats chimed in,
    “The mist will change the clan,”
    “The mist will change the clan,”
    “The mist will change the clan.”

    Chapter one
    ”Come on Moonkit, we’re sneaking out tonight. Remember?” Mistykit’s voice was low as she prodded her denmate in the side. Yellowstrike shifted as Moonkit scrambled out of the nest, but didn’t wake.
    “Let’s get Ivykit and go,” Moonkit whispered, “she’s still asleep.” As the two kits made their way toward Ivykit and Blossomwater’s nest, Ivykit’s black and white head popped over the edge. Mistykit could barely suppress a mew of laughter as she peered through the gloom to see Ivykit’s fur ruffled. Silverkit peered over the edge and she squeaked quietly,
    “Can I come, too?”
    “Umm… er… maybe another time,” Moonkit said hesitantly.
    “Nonsense!” Mistykit scraped the ground impatiently with her soft pads, “she can come, let’s just get going! Before Swoopstar finds out!” Pawsteps padder through camp as the four kits squeezed under the den wall and out into the forest
