The Warriors series is a successful group of novels that detail the adventures of four clans of felines: Riverclan, Thunderclan, Shadowclan, and Windclan. The cats’ names in the stories were developed using a prefix that describes a color or something in nature and a suffix that describes the animal’s personality. Newborn cats are given the suffix “kit,” and apprentices over 6 months old have the suffix “paw.”

We’ve developed some lists to help you give your pet a warrior name, and we’ve included popular characters from the series and original combinations. All the names are suitable for a male or female cat. We bet you will find a fantastic Warrior-inspired name for your fierce and fabulous feline.

Kittypet Names

Kittypets are housecats that usually have ordinary cat names. Kittypets are cared for by Twolegs, but they’re not respected by the warrior cats. Kittypets are plump, lazy animals that the Twolegs feed several times a day. Some former clan members become Kittypets when they’re banished or decide to go their own way. Names with suffixes similar to warrior cats mean the cats were former clan members.

Rogue Cat Names

When cats are exiled from a clan, they become rogue cats. They do not follow the clan’s rules, and sometimes form separate groups. Unlike loners, who keep to themselves and obey the clans, rogues are violent cats. Rogues often sneak into the clan’s territory to steal goods, and some rogue felines kill without reason. If your cat has a wild streak and isn’t the most loving pet in the world, you might consider giving it a rogue name. Some of the Kittypets from the previous list that became rogue are also included on this list.

Final Thoughts

Erin Hunter’s Warriors novels have inspired cat lovers to use unusual names for their pets, and some fans enjoy the books so much that they’ve written fan fiction and even novel-length adventures. The Warriors series has spawned seven sub-series, each containing six novels. In April 2022, the eighth sub-series will release its first book, River. Whether your feline seems like a rogue Percy, or a warrior named Leopardshine, we hope our list has helped in naming your beloved Tigerheart.
