Continue reading below to learn how the various Warrior names are put together to learn how to make your own names.

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 usually match 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 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 for inspiration 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

Clan Names

The warriors series covers the adventures of five clans of cats, all with a nature prefix and the word ‘clan’ as a suffix. Each of these cat clans has its unique special skills. The clans include:

  • ThunderClan
  • ShadowClan
  • WindClan
  • RiverClan
  • SkyClan

Other Names from the Series

The Ancients

Before the clans moved to the lake territories, The Ancients lived there. The Ancients’ names are all two words, but they aren’t combined into a single name like the Warriors. Some examples include Dove’s Wing, Stone Song, and Fallen Leaves.

Loner Cats

Loners live on their own and don’t belong to any clans. Their names are single words and typically normal names or inspired by nature. Some names include Storm, Bumble, Night, and Lichen.

Tribe Cats

The tribe has different terminology and positions than a clan but is otherwise similar. Their names are similar to Native American names. Some tribe cat names include Rock Beneath Still Water, Talon of Swooping Eagle, and Lark That Sings at Dawn.

Kittypet Names

Kittypets are typical housecats within the Warriors universe. They have normal cat names, which our cat names generator are perfect for!

  1. Delia

    Mine is hazel eye

  2. vampirewitch100

    What about Magpie?

  3. Musical Trash

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

  4. 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.”

  5. 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.)

  6. Willowheart

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

  7. 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

  8. Paledust

    Redraven or Flamefern?

  9. Brambleleaf

    I love this and thanks for the ideas!

  10. Mousestar❤

    This is so helpful since I’m writing my own Warrior cat series, thank you

  11. Annbot

    I came up with Poppysong

  12. Moonfur

    I think moon can be a suffix cause my Warrior cat OC is Moonfur and there is a cat called Moonflower

  13. Dawnstar

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

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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!!

  17. 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!

  18. Silkypelt

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

  19. Der Schein trügt.

    I made Cherrysong, Cloudstone, Moonfrost, Swiftflame

  20. 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!

  21. Silverstar

    I. Love. WARRIORS! I’m making my own series too! But I needed names so thanks! Please can you add more? Like fire to prefixs

  22. Gingerfur

    I made the warrior name Gingerfur

  23. Applefrost

    Thanks this helped me a lot. I made Applefrost, Cinderfire, Otterstripe, Silverspot, Swiftspots and Tigerwhisper

  24. Silversky

    I came up with Poppyfang, Acornbranch, Silverlight, Alderleaf and Otterdawn.

  25. Yellowthorn

    Kyle, please add Eel to the prefixes as it is a prefix because in Mapleshade’s Fury there’s a cat in RiverClan called Eeltail. Thanks!

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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).

  29. Spottedmask

    One more, “Rye” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan warrior named “Ryestalk”)

  30. Spottedmask

    Nope, here’s another one, “nettle” is a prefix (ex: the SkyClan cat named “Nettlesplash).

  31. 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”).

  32. 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.

  33. Spottedmask

    While I’m at it, “Russet” is a prefix (ex: the ShadowClan deputy “Russetfur”), “Rowan” is a prefix (ex: the ShadowClan deputy “Rowanclaw”), and “Red” is a prefix (ex: I can’t remember which Clan the warrior came from, but his name was “Redwillow”).

  34. Meadowfire

    You’re missing sharp for the prefixes(ex:the sky clan deputy Sharpclaw

  35. Spottedmask

    Hey, just wanted to add that “Morning” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan Queen/Elder “Morningflower), “One” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan cat “Onewhisker”), “Toad” is a prefix (ex: the ShafowClan cat “Toadfoot” and the ThunderClan cat “Toadstep”), “Hop” is a prefix (ex: the WindClan cat “Hopkit”), and “Marigold” is a prefix (ex: Marigoldkit, I think the cat was from ThunderClan maybe? but passed shortly after birth).

  36. Nightfall

    I feel like I’m taking so much from the books when I write a spin-off, it’s terrifying to think that you’re taking too much from the books.

  37. Moonflower

    Ooh! Jay is a prefix (the thunderclan med cat Jayfeather)

  38. Frost That Freezes Hearts (Frost)

    Bella isn’t a prefix.

  39. Silver Star glinting in the sky (Silver)

    I have a pre/suf fix for Q
    Quiet. And more pre/suf fixes for other letters like Z

  40. Thistleblaze

  49. Mistymoon

    I came up with Dawnflame, Ivyfern, Mistymoon, Shadowstar, Tigerstripe, Whiterose, and many more! This thing is so helpful. My cat is Mistymoon. She was born as a runt, with a light gray coat and emerald green eyes like her mom, Ivyfern.

  50. Cooperfox
