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. Sparrowblaze

    Sneak Peek of Trueheart’s destiny
    “Starclaw no!!” suddenly Truepaw’s brother got washed away into the ever-flowing river. Tears ran down her face. “It’s okay you still have me right?” her friend Cloverpaw asked her.”What you think it’s easy to see your brother rush down a river!” “No I’m just… never mind.” Truepaw knew she had hurt his feelings. “If I have to suffer watching my brother be killed by one of our clan’s loyalest warrior, then I can’t be apart of Burnclan.” Truepaw started to walk away.

    “Hey, little cat come ‘ere” Truepaw saw a black cat sitting by a bramble.” Lookin’ for a new clan eh? If you are then come to Nightmareclan. We’ll take care of ya”

  2. Rosepatch

    Sneak peek of Dawnbranche’s Heart
    Dawnbranch awoke with a gust of wind blowing on her back. Out side she could see it was snowing. She curled deeper into her nest closing her eyes trying to look asleep.
    “I know your awake” a tom’s voice sounded from the back of the den “I caught you mouse.”
    The tom dropped a mouse at dawnbranch’s paws. “Eat” he instructed.
    “I don’t want it” Dawnbranch turned her head away from the temping piece of prey. She wanted to eat, she was hungry, but Dawnbranch refused to eat.
    “I spent time to catch this mouse, just for you to say you don’t want it when your obviously starving yourself” the tom’s voice rang with anger “No one is saying you can’t eat, but yet you wont. You complain about your moss bed, about being hungry, about being cold, and about getting restless in this den.”
    Dawnbranch turned away from the tom not listening to whatever else he was going to say. She didn’t care, unless he mentioned her freedom she never really bothered with listening. She didn’t want anything to do with him, she just wanted to be free, she wanted to go to her clan.
    She wanted to go home

  3. Stormtooth

    Here’s my bonus story:
    Dovefrost woke up in her den to a sunny day. “Maybe the sun is a sign that everything will be okay” she said to herself. Dovefrost looked over to the nest next to her where Coppertooth was sleeping. “I wonder how well she took the news when she found out about Jaykit.
    Dovefrost got to her feat and leaped out of her den. Suddenly Dovefrost bumped into her clan leaders, Acornstar and Frostystar. “Hello Dovefrost how is your day going?” asked Frostystar. “Well i’m about to find out” she meowed. “Find out what?” asked Acornstar. “If Bluebellkit is blind” she explained.
    “Well we have to go orginize the dawn patrol, but good luck” said Frostystar as her and Acornstar walked away. Dovefrost padded over to Dewheart’s den with her heart pounding.
    When she got to the den Moonshadow greeted her. “Hello” she purred. “Hello Moonshadow, what are you doing here?” she asked. “Foggykit has a cold Dewheart is checking her up” she told her. “Would you like me to get Dewheart for you?” she asked licking her paw. “Yes thank you” Dovefrost quietly purred. Moonshadow dissapeared in a curtain of ferns and came back with Dewheart. “You’re hear for Bluebellkit aren’t you?” asked the wise she-cat. “Yes I am” she told her.
    Dewheart went back to the curtain of ferns and came back with Bluebellkit. “Hi mother” she looking at her with her gray eyes. “Hello Bluebellkit” she greeted her back. “I have bad news your daughter is blind” she explained.

    And that’s all folks…….

  4. Spottedmask

    So, I see that “Bella” is on the list of prefixes. “Bella” is a human name, and not a name of nature that the Clan cats would have known. The only reason why the SkyClan cat “Bellaleaf” had that name was because she had been a kittypet named “Bella”, and SkyClan cats are known for having Daytime Warriors who had both their Twoleg given name and a warrior suffex attached to it, like “Billystorm”, “Rileypool”, and “Harveymoon”. I don’t think that “Bella” belongs on the list of prefixes or in the name generator. Really, anyone could take any name and put it there, it just happened to be “Bella”. Having “Bella” there doesn’t make any more sense then having “Sarah” or “Emily” there, as an example.

  5. Spottedmask

    I would like to add that “Pear” is a prefix. There was a ThunderClan cat name “Pearnose” who had approached “Goosefeather” as a ghost when he was training to be a medicine cat.

  6. Spottedmask

    I also wanted to add that “Yarrow” is a prefix, (ex: the ShadowClan Yarrowleaf), “Cone” is a prefix (can’t remember the cat’s full name of which Clan they can from, but “cone” came from “pinecone”), “Curl” is a prefix (ex: the RiverClan/WindClan cat named Curlfeather), “Sneeze” is a prefix (ex: the RiverClan cat named “Sneezecloud), “Sedge” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan cat name “Sedgewhisker), “Wooly” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan cat named “Woolytail), “Plum” is a prefix (ex: the SkyClan cat named Plumwillow, and there was a WindClan cat but I can’t remember her full name), “Strike” is a prefix (ex: the ShadowClan cat named Strikestone), “Oat” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan cat named Oatwhisker), and “Seed” is a prefix (ex: the ThunderClan cat named Seedpaw).

  7. Spottedmask

    And another one, “rabbit” is a prefix (ex: the SkyClan warrior named “Rabbitleap”).
    Also want to mention that “Fallow” I a prefix (ex: the SkyClan cat named “Fallowfern”).

  8. Spottedmask

    I didn’t think that I would have to mention this, but “gray” is a prefix (ex: Graystripe of ThunderClan), and while I’m at it, “Dust” is a prefix (ex: Dustpelt of ThunderClan), “Dusk” is a prefix (ex: there was a RiverClan cat, I think her name was Duskwater?), and “bracken” is a prefix (ex: “Brackenfur” of ThunderClan).
    All that said though, this article is great.

  11. Sparrowblaze

    Bonus Story
    “Get out of here freak!” said Lionkit. “Hey stop being mean to your step sister Lionkit! You know she’s blind” Acornstar demanded. Jaykit said “Stop trying to stand up for me! I can fight for my self!” suddenly she bowled Lionkit over slashing his right eye almost open. “Jaykit stop that right now!” Coppertooth told her kit. “MOMMY HELP ME” Lionkit whined. Acornstar looked at Jaykit in horror. Why would she be so cruel? “Coppertooth, take better care of your kits!” Mosswish bellowed.

    Two days later…
    “His eye will be black but his eye will heal over time” said Mintpelt. “He’s strong. Your lucky he even survived that.” she told Acornstar. Acornstar heard Hollykit and Alderkit fighting with Jaykit Aspenkit and Ivykit. “Hey stop that right now!” Acornstar rushed over to the fighting kits. “There is already enough chaos in Stormclan. Cats fighting, and keeping secrets!” he flashed a glance at Coppertooth.

  12. Dovefrost

    Dovefrost was laying on the edge of the den grooming Sunnykit and Bluebellkit. Then Ivykit approached them. “Do want to come and play Sunnykit” the tom asked. “Sure” meowed Sunnykit as the cat’s walked off. “Mom, why does no one want to play with me?” asked Bluebellkit eagerly.
    “Well because you’re blind” she explained. “And why don’t you play with Jaykit and Foggykit?” she asked. “Because they never come over to ask” she mewed. “Why don’t you ask?” said Dovefrost.
    “I’m scared they won’t like me” she answered. “Oh, well why don’t you show your eyes anymore? you always keep them closed” she pointed out. “All the other kit’s say I look creepy when I do” she told her.
    “I don’t think you look creepy when you open your eyes, neither does Tigerblaze” she said. “Yeah but you guys are my mom and dad, you have to like me” she loudly mewed.
    “Can you open them I want to see my daughter’s eye’s” she said. Bluebellkit looked up at her mother and pushed her icy gray eyes open. “There she is” her mother joked. Then Jaykit and Foggykit came over to them. “Want to play Bluebellkit?” Jaykit asked. “Sure” she answered

    That’s all folks….
