Why Ravenpaw Deserves a Warrior Name by Bluefire

Bluefire explains the reasoning behind Ravenpaw’s name.

Artwork by TrashScoot

Okay, here’s a few reasons why Ravenpaw (a VIC [very important character] from the Prophecies Begin arc) deserves his warrior name.

1. He was the only one who witnessed Tigerclaw kill Redtail. If he hadn’t, who knows what Tigerclaw/star could’ve gotten away with? Ever Firestar (Firepaw/heart at the time) wouldn’t have had any reason not to trust him!! He’d probably have ended up taking over Thunderclan, then slowly the rest of the forest! So Ravenpaw definitely deserves a warrior name for that.

2. He was brave enough to stand up to Tigerclaw, in his own way. He was kind of shy and jumpy, but he stood up to Tigerclaw/star and told his friends Firepaw and Greypaw what was going on. If he hadn’t, well, Tigerclaw probably would’ve killed him just in case, and what happened for the first reason would still happen.

3. He existed. Ravenpaw was a very important part of the arc, pretty much a main character. If he hadn’t existed, there would’ve been no one to witness Tigerclaw’s actions in the first place. Also, Ravenpaw, along with Barley, helped the Windclan cats when they’d been pushed from their territory, and helped the leaders and medicine cats while they went to visit the moonstone.

4. He was loyal to his clan. Even though it meant disobeying his mentor, he was willing to risk his life to make sure that Thunderclan wasn’t taken over by an evil dictator (cough TIGERCLAW cough). Even if Firepaw and Greypaw whisked him away to Barley’s farm in the end, he probably lived every day after that battle knowing that Tigerclaw could come and kill him at any moment for what he knew. But he never tried to run away on his own. He stayed until his friends made him leave (for his own good, of course).

5. He’s RAVENPAW. I mean, if Firestar deserves to be leader, Ravenpaw at least deserves a warrior name. Come on, people.

So, if we’re all agreed, I’d like to hear some suggestions for a warrior name for Ravenpaw. I’ve got a couple…..

Ravenheart
Ravensong
Ravenwing
Ravenbreeze
Ravenflight

If you have any other suggestions, post them in the comments. Please don’t suggest Ravenfeather though, the suffix ‘feather’ is way too overused in my opinion (AHEM Crowfeather and Jayfeather).

I hope you enjoyed the article!

I always felt his name would be Ravenpool. It’s a calm, gentle sounding name, much like himself.


I'm obsessed with battle cats-

I personally have always thought his name would be Ravenspeak. If he hadn’t spoken up to Firepaw and Graypaw, who knows what could have happened!

PLEASE NOT RAVENWING. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE. RAVENWING IS ALREADY A CANON FROM MAPLESHADE’S VENGENCE, AND HE IS HORRIBLE. I would suggest Raventail, Ravenfeather, or Ravenflight

So in my Fanfiction I have a cat named ravenclaw (don’t use it please) and I looked it up to see if it was taken, and somewhere I found that Erin hunter said his warrior name would be Ravenwing

I think Ravenfire would fit him very well, because he told Firestar, as Firepaw, about Tigerclaw, also Fire alone will save the clans, Firepaw, Heart, Star couldn’t have saved the clans if he hadn’t been told about Tigerclaw being evil, which Ravenpaw told him about. Do you see my point? So I personally think it Should be Ravenfire, or Ravenstar, because wouldn’t he make a good leader people? Please tell me if you agree about his name being Ravenfire. Thanks you, also go to Quotev.com and look up Duskwing and please check out my story’s! Thanks so much!

Actually, no! Ravenpaw denied receiving a warrior name from StarClan, as well as denying to take a place in StarClan in favour of going with Barley to wherever Barley goes when he eventually passes on. Ravenwing is what Cherith would have liked to name Ravenpaw IF he ever became a warrior/accepted a warrior name.
