Best Warrior Cat Names

The Top Ten

1 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost

.. I get so frustrated when I make a fan-fiction and I can't use hawkfrost

This is just an awesome name just awesome. I LOVE THIS NAME!

Yep maybe the cat wasn't so good but he is really handsome and the name just killed it

If you think about it, the name Hawkfrost doesn't make much sense at all.

Is the hawk freezing?
Or is "frost" just used, because of his actions and personality?

2 Echosong

Love this name it is so awesome and sounds so beautiful it's like your imagining in the mist there is a beautiful song echoing of the cave walls LOVE this name

She's a great medicine cat, but I don't like the way she told Leafstar to not be friends with Billystorm. But still, her name is wonderful. A song made of echoes? I would like to hear it.

I have always loved the prefix "Echo", and use it all the time! The only disappointing thing is that I can't use the suffix "song" while creating my Echoes! It sounds beautiful, and I also love the character Echosong from SkyClan!

I loved this name ever since I read it in the books! It just sound so peaceful and quiet.Echosong is probably one of my FAVORITE names!

3 Silverstream Silverstream

An awesome name what is really awesome about the prefix silver is that it can make some pretty magical names like silver mist silver moon silver storm etc and it works extremely well for medicine cats

What's with all this "Firestar and Silverstream being mates" thing?! Firestar's heart belongs to Sandstorm and Graystripe's belongs to Silverstream. Or... Millie.

I don't think she should be mates with Firestar/heart, because they don't belong together, I really think her mate should be Graystripe Still, their a better couple. Can you Imagine Silverstream's kits with Firestar/heart?!

-Dawnstream aka Mistystorm

4 Starlilly

Adorable but sadly not allowed by the code still Moonflower exists sometimes the Hunters break the rules

Star cannot be a prefix- what if they became leader? But however this a totally RADICAL name I love it. - Leafshade

I like this name. It sounds calm and refreshing. - RowanFlame352

I agree with leafshade
-Mintleaf of LavaClan

5 Ivypool Ivypool

I love Ivypool so much better than Dovewing. I wouldn't say that Dovewing has no flaws, because she does, but she just WHINES SO MUCH. That's why I don't like Dovewing. Dovewing didn't do anything useful (except the beaver thing). Dovewing just whined about her powers and relationship problems. So she is not a Mary Sue, but she's just a whiner. (But this is about Ivypool) But Ivypool doesn't complain. Ivypool's name just always appealed to me. I always loved her name

I've seen what she looks like in a book before, ( a warrior guide, of course! ) and she is so pretty. I love her name too. I imagine ivy angrily swirling inside a pool. Seriously, Ivypool's like that.

She is so much better than Dovewing. She risks her life every night and she is fierce, independent, and beautiful, and actually has flaws unlike someone I know *cough Dovewing cough*

Hey this is about names, don't go hating on Dovewing, she's just as good as Ivypool - Songwind

Ivypaw is amazing I’ve drawn her many times her markings are very different from other warrior cats and I’ve even drawn a boy version of her as fan art his name is cover paw

6 Rainfeather

I love the name of that cat. AWESOME!

Wow this is like the best name I've ever heard it should be above Hawkfrost. Even though Hawkfrost is cool it makes NO sense but neither does Rainfeather this name is so awesome
-Burrfire of LicolnClan

Wow this name is so good I love it! 😻😻😻 - Leafshade

7 Starstar

Worst Name Ever I Would Be Ashamed If My Name Was Starstar I Would Be Like: can't I Just Be Called Star?

I like this name it seems strangely derpy - Rainpoppy824

Like worst name ever starstar what! I'm sorry WHATTT! I would seriously give a piece of my mind to that stupid mother decided it was fun to call me star kit and I will need to talk to the leader who gave me this pathetic name star star yuck!

Please put Crimsontide or Mountaindew on here.

8 Lionblaze Lionblaze Lionblaze is a character in the Warrior Cats series . He is part of The Three, along with Jayfeather and Dovewing, and has the power of being undefeated in battle . However, the power if removed from him after the Clans are saved from the Dark Forest .

It would have certainly livened things up if he had mated Heathertail instead of Cinderheart...she just doesn't seem fitting for him. It's so weird all of a sudden he gets attracted to her and by the next series he has kits and Cinder is expecting again - Blossomfrost

I hate all the hate lionblaze is getting. He OP because he's part of a prophecy. He nearly killed himself for Cinderheart. He killed a cat. He isn't a Gary Stu He is awesome - _breezeheart

The cat is all right but the name is awesome

This is an epic name.

9 SageShadow

This is A Nice name to think about, a Shadow of a sage

Shadow isn't allowed, and I also don't like it.

Shadow is a nice suffix, but shadow of the sage? That's really weird - Blossomfrost

I think SageShadow is a beautiful name. It really gives of a vibe that tells you’re beautiful and sweet, with a heart of gold that shines down on others (Sage.) But when you get mad, you get mad. You’re extremely protective, and sometimes your heart, so pure, can turn black as obsidian.

10 Raindapple

Like a beautiful mottled gray she-cat with steel blue eyes

I remember making up this name myself. But this is a super cool name!

A very beautiful name.

My one’s Rainfeather, but Raindapple sounds cool - Aquastar_of_DewClan

The Contenders

11 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf

Okay I love LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this character and name spottedleaf should be number two but I agree with hawkfrost as number 1 ya gotta love the name hawkrost... But I Like spottedleaf much better :3 kitty face!

Spottedleaf is AWESOME! I love the name, and she is a great cat. I wish that they would make more good names like Spottedleaf

I love her name, but it would have been so interesting if she had lived and Firestar would be caught in a love triangle between her and Sandstorm - Blossomfrost

Pretty name, lovely cat. Spottedleaf did NOT deserve to die like that!

12 Sliverflame

I love this name really, I think it would go best with a black and ginger she cat, with any eye color even odd eyed.

That's one of the most prettiest names I've ever heard!

To be called sliverflame and have a black and orange pelt... Lucky so so lucky

Who said Sliverflame was Yellowfang’s mother? Whoever did, Sliverflame in NOT Yellowfang’s mom. First, the cat you are thinking about is Yellowfang’s MOM’S mom. Second, Sliverflame is not Brightflower’s (Yellowfang’s mother) mom, the cat is SILVERFLAME.

13 Emeraldstone

This is supposed to be non-fanfiction names. Real ones, not these gemstone ones. And cats don't know what emeralds are.

Beautiful name, I must admit. Emeraldstone is a vet nice name, indeed. But realistically, cats wouldn't know what an emerald is, or any other type of jewel.

Nope, cats don't know what emeralds are.

I think that this would be a sweet, energetic that was blind. - RowanFlame352

14 Jayfeather Jayfeather Jayfeather is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He is part of The Three, along with Lionblaze and Dovewing, and has the power to read other cats' minds and walk into other cats dreams. He is blind.

I'm like Half Moon, "Jayfeather, be my mate! " If Jayfeather was real and I was a she-cat, I would take him as my own! His name is the best in the whole warrior cat world! "Whoever likes Jayfeather shout, JAYFEATHER! " I say and then shout, "JAYFEATHER! "

Jayfeather is my crush and I love him and his name.

Personally, Jayfeather's a bit too sensitive for his own good. Yes, he's had a lot of pain in his life, being half clan AND blind. But Hollyleaf and Lionblaze have gone through just as much as he has, if not MORE...

JAYFEATHER! I shouted it. - Rainflower

15 Cloversplash

Its just such a beautiful name- when I hear this name I think of as someone else said a beautiful calico she that is kind but very energetic-it also sorta sounds like med cat name

Who couldn't like this name! I mean, it's pretty, and it could come from any Clan. Think about it!
Dark cream she-cat with brown clover-like patches and amber eyes.

Beautiful! I imagine her as a long-haired light brown she-cat with soft fur, a brown striped tail, white chest and paws, and deep amber eyes. Love it!

~Dawnstream (;

16 Snowcrystal

Umm... No offense to those Snowcrystal lovers, but isn't that already a snowflake? Well who cares. Either way, this name is brilliant! Nice image comes in your head.

Love the name! I imagine a snow white she-cat with blue eyes. She has a sweet personality but when it comes to the Clan, she'll die for them!

Awesome name I'm looking for a name for my cat she is sleek and shy but she is always ready to fight for the clan

17 Jay Paw

I don't think it should be here because it doesn't have that special thing about it that warrior names have

This is a nice name, for it could be when Jayfeather was an apprentice? I don't know. But also, it should be spelled Jaypaw, not Jay Paw.

Personally I don't see how it's possible to critique an apprentice name, but others do it. And it's not Jay Paw it's supposed to be Jaypaw - Blossomfrost

I like the name Jaypaw. - RedTheGremlin

18 Genus

Okay no. Just no.

Do u mean genius? - Leafshade


Genus. Wow. No. Just. No. - Raindapple

19 Shimmerpelt

I remember coming up with this then finding it in the books a few days later looked at my picture and was like *Throws paper out window* It was a crappy name anyway. -Violetsnow

This name reminds me of funniest kit names there was one called shimmeryhappinesskit

Shimmerpelt is a black she-cat of RiverClan and her name is just as beautiful as he'd fur!

Shimmerpelt was a black she-cat who mothered Blackclaw and Skyheart in Crookedstar's time, but now there's another silver warrior in RiverClan with the same name...I don't really like it personally - Blossomfrost

I love the cat - Leafshade

21 Embertide

This sounds like it would be for a golden tabby she-cat. Love it!

That sounds like a silver-blue river clan ace cat with ember colored eyes

It sounds like an orange Tom with a gentle personality, love it.

Super cool and pretty name. Sounds like a RiverClan loyal warrior shecat with a light gray pelt. Loves water - Leafshade

22 Shadetail

A very good name- I imagine a dark gray she cat in ThunderClan with white paws. Her parents are Haywillow and Beechpelt, and her sister is Seedflight. Her best friend is Kestrelsong and she is deputy. The leader is Poppystar. - Leafshade

23 Squeakers

If that was my name and I was a warrior I would commit suicide - Blossomfrost

I would threaten the leader with death I my name was not changed, then go kill my mom. - Rainflower

No WARRIOR would tolerate THAT name!

lol - Leafshade

24 Darksnow

This name sounds really cool.

Oxymoron, but is cool - Leafshade

I've always liked the suffix -snow, cause it just appeals to me.
Idek, just..,

Good name. *clap clap*

25 Willowleaf

Good - Leafshade

26 Lightning Claw

Wow this is really rad - Leafshade

awesome - Rainflower

I have an oc named Lightningclaw she's a pure black she-cat with yellow eyes

I am going use this name ^o^

27 Rainbowtail

Who ever wrote thing down the bottom of why it's not a good name... Just go to some other website and complain about how you think of the name cause I am sick of people being so negative and being Like a judge of Warrior cats and thinking "Oh I am a warrior cat expert oh I think this is bad name cause of this and this and that and that" THIS SOUNDS LIKE A PRETTY NAME SO GET OVER IT EVERYONE HAS TO BE CREATIVE NOT MAKE UP WHAT YOU THINK IS BEST IN YOUR OPINION!

I used to love rainbows, but now gays claimed it and I hate gays. GO DIE IN A HOLE GAYS! That is NOT how God wants us to be! This name is offensive.

Rainbow is a great prefix. I'm not sure cats know it, but I like it. Rainbow cloud is good 2 - Leafshade

It should be a black/gray cat with a rainbow tail!

28 Silverpelt

The name is prohibited because the stars in the sky are called Silverpelt - Blossomfrost

That's where StarClan can be seen at nighttime -.- - RedTheGremlin

That is the name of the StarClan star cats. But good, if it was allowed - Leafshade

No. just, no. - Rainflower

29 Stormsplash

That sounds really dumb - Rainflower

Ooo I like this! - Leafshade

Not a fan... - Blossomfrost

30 Falconstreak

I like this name because I am the one who came up with both the prefix and the suffix, surprisingly, I would imagine this cat being a strong sleek silver pelted tom with black stripes. <--- again my prediction

Cool name! I'm seeing a lithe dark brown tabby tom with a streak of white on his chest, and flashing Amber eyes - Blossomfrost

Its Really Cool I just See A Light brown And Golden Streaked/Striped Tom!

O.O amazing. - Rainflower

Already a RiverClan Queen...see Crookedstar's Promise - Blossomfrost

So pretty - Leafshade

33 Firestar Firestar Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He's mates with Sandstorm and has 2 kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. He was formerly a kittypet.

I like Firestar better in the first series, but he's still a very brave and strong cat.

I love firestar he is an awesome leader great name 2 - Leafshade

Firestar is my FAVORITE cat! I was SO sad when he died!

He and Jayfeather are my favorite - Blossomfrost

34 Moonblaze

Moon can't be a prefix despite moonflower. But I love it as a prefix anyways. Moonshine, Moondust, Moonwater, Moonshadow, Moonblaze... all so cool and awesome and tough and pretty. - Leafshade

Ha ha ha yeah...not cool - Blossomfrost

No cat is allowed to have 'Moon' as their prefix.

Whoever said this: Moon,sun,star,sky,shadow,river,wind,and thunder can not be used as warrior names! 🙀
First moon and sun are religious to the cats and you can't be starstar if your leader. You also can't be a clan name as river ripple and tall shadow and wind runner and thunder and clear was a mistake in the book to have moonflower and a couple more cats. If you don't agree. Look it up!
But it still is a cool powerful and flashy name! 👍🐈

Is wrong because there is Moonflower, Sunstar, and other names that start with moon and sun that Erin Hunter used! So, don't judge someone, but the Starstar one is dumb! LOL!

35 Light Claw

Nope...Light is a pretty prefix which is very hard to pair up with an ending, in my opinion. Claw just dies not work - Blossomfrost

He is a cream tom with white paws and green eyes. He starts LightClan, a clan that lives on a hill. His mate is Meadowblossom, a ginger she cat with a white underbelly and green eyes. His sister is Snowywhisker, a white she cat with blue eyes. Deaf and med cat.


First of all, Bluestar's mother was MOONflower. (The Erins did say it WAS a mistake)
Second of all, Dovewing and Tigerheart's brown tabby she-kit is LIGHTkit (the Erins said it was NO mistake)
Third of all, Dovewing and Tigerheart's dark gray tabby tom-kit is SHADOWkit (the Erins said it was NO mistake)

Dovewing named Lightkit after her and Tigerheart's differences. To celebrate that She was from ThunderClan and he was from ShadowClan.
And they named Shadowkit after ShadowClan because they wanted to celebrate that just cause they are from different Clans doesn't mean the should be ashamed.

So please get your facts straight and look things up before you ruin people's hard work

Whoever created this name I give it 9.5/10 because it should be Lightclaw and cause it might represent something. I can imagine little Lightkit having this warrior name!

36 Lightfoot

This just sounds amazing! I love it, over the top!

Light is a good prefix - Leafshade

37 Floodpelt

Cats don't know about floods but nice name anyway - Leafshade

38 Sunstrike

Sunstrike is an awesome name! It's flashy, powerful and fast. - Moonblaze

I love that name! I wish I had one named that - RedTheGremlin

Amazing and dashing name

Really cool name!

39 Firefly

Great cute rouge name

AWESOME I think it is a dark pelted she cat in thunderclan with a white head and is super smart. I love this name! Firefly is an actual thing, which is even better! - Leafshade

Love it. Black cat with red feet and glowing amber eyes. Sweet she-cat with a feisty personality when threatened by strangers or when strangers threaten her family. Her mate Stormstar (former Riverclan leader) died and she raised her five kits alone.

40 Isabella

Isabella is my name! I laughed so hard when I found this on the list.

I'm pretty sure the person who made this just put her name in it.

Lol, I'm just going to put Alyssa on the list now... - Flowersocks2137

Kittypet name - Leafshade

41 Torrentfur
42 Thunderpool

Marvelous! - Leafshade

Absolutely love this name. 😍 I imagine a pure black cat with a white streak down his back. Then I would make his eyes dazzling blue. My most favourite name ever! Should be in top ten.😜 -Ravenfeather of HollyClan

43 Dawnflower

Beautiful but I think that's already a Clan name

I think she's a great cat!

These names are SUPPOSED to be Clan names...

Okay so I meant to Click vote firestar, he's a clan leader, once a kittypet. He was found by Graypaw(Graystripe) his future best friend, in the forest. He has two great kits. Leafpool is #1 medicine cat ever. Then Squirrelflight is a sorta annoying car but is brave enough too go on the journey to the sun drown place with Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, Crowpaw (Crowfeather) and Feathertail and Stormfur. She also gives birth to Jayfeather, Hollyleaf, and Lionblaze. Jayfeather is a blind medicine car whom was given to leafpool as an apprentice. Hollywood is a loyal warrior but kills ashfur. How dare she?! Lionblaze is very strong. Dovewing is sure he will be deputy. Firestar also had a nephew, Cloudtail. Cloydrail is married to Brightheart and has one daughter, Whitewing

44 Dreamfeather

Sounds like a dead she-cat

I loe that name, so cute

Such a pretty name I love it 😇

45 Thunder Fang

Badass - Leafshade

46 Dovefeather

Why does this have no votes? I imagine Dovefeather as a silvery white she-cat of RiverClan. Her mother is Snowheart and her father is Darkflight. She has a sister called Willowstream. Her mate is Stormheart and her kits are Mistflower, Sparkfeather, Grassfoot, and Mossheart.

47 Silverwing

I like this one! To me it sound like a lithe silver tabby with dark blue eyes

I love the name to and it sounds like a can that I love named gray wing. a tom from the dawn of the clan series

48 Bluestar Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She is mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, live in RiverClan

I love her so much but she was a total psycho at the end of her last life.

She is my favorite charecter



49 Frogmist


50 Flowerstem

Awesome name! - Leafshade
