Erin Hunter’s vast and immersive book series Warriors is a dream come true for cat lovers who also happen to be book lovers. The novels detail the adventures and lives of several clans of feral cats living in different territories in the world.

These include the Riverclan, Thunderclan, Shadowclan, Skyclan, and Windclan. There are hundreds of named characters throughout the series. These include clanless cats known as “rogues.” And of course, there are the “kittypets,” a term for cats taken in by “Twolegs,” which is how the cats refer to us humans.

The names of the cats in Warriors follow the convention of using a prefix that describes something in nature and a suffix that describes a body part (such as a paw, claw, or fur), or something of significance to that particular cat’s story or personality. The suffix also denotes a rank or personality trait, indicated as follows:

  • Star (Leader)
  • Paw (Apprentice)
  • Claw (Warrior)
  • Tail (Warrior)
  • Heart (Medicine Cat)
  • Whisker (Deputy)
  • Leaf (Medicine Cat)
  • Fur (Loyal)
  • Sky (Fearless)
  • Shine (Optimistic)

As a result of the intricate way in which these names are given in the world of Warriors, the list of potential Warriors-themed cat names is virtually endless. We’ve put together a list of names for cats based on actual Warriors characters, as well as names that would work well in the Warriors universe, so you can find the perfect name to give your own kitty.

    It probably would have been best to do research on the book series before making this..

    -star is for leaders
    -paw is for apprentices
    -kit is for kittens

    Any other suffix can be given regardless of rank. I have no idea where you got the information that “-heart is for medicine cats” or any of that other stuff.

    I found this artical very helpful when writing my own Warrior cat book! I found some of the prefixes and suffixes and mixed ’em up-and no, I am not here to steal Erins work-once I did that, I add the characters names and personalities, then writes chapters, fun facts/giveaways in the book, etc. After that I let my heart spill out and write creative story. (⚡NONE OF MY CHARACTERS ARE FROM THE REAL BOOK!⚡)
