Top 10 Worst Warrior Names by Otterpaw

Otterpaw share a list of some of the worst names in the series. Are any of them on your list?

Hello! Otterpaw here and today, I am here to show you the worst names in warriors in my opinion!

10) Deadfoot – I didn’t place this higher on the list because I’m just glad that his mother, Meadowslip, had a problem with the name. (Maybe Rainflower should take parenting lessons from Meadowslip 😛 ) I liked the name Hopkit, it was cute. Hopfoot sounds like a better name than Deadfoot, though!

9) Runningnose – Well yes, Yellowfang named him for a reminder that medicine cats can’t cure everything, but seriously? Runningnose? Okay, I just think this name is a good reminder and all, but Runningnose isn’t the greatest name to give a cat.

8) Hollowbelly – Whoa, this cat must always he hungry! 😛 This name is just… just… why?

7) Loudbelly – This is almost the same name as Hollowbelly, but his stomach is always yowling for food! Maybe as a kit he was always eating food? Maybe? I don’t know, but this name is just an bad name to give a cat.

6) Harrybrook – Okay, this name makes no sense. A harry brook? That’s just a terrible name, Leafstar. Especially

5) Foxheart – Well, yes, Foxheart is sort of a… fox-heart but that’s not the point here. Anways… SERIOUSLY CEDARSTAR?? (right?) WHY WOULD YOU GIVE A CAT THE NAME FOXHEART!!! THAT IS JUST RUDE AND A TERRIBLE NAME!!! WHAT EVEN???


4) Twigbrach – … Seriously? A twig and a branch is basically the same name. It’s like naming a cat Fawndeer or Speckledapple. It’s the same thing, and there are much better warrior names for Twigpaw than… Twigbranch.

3) Crookedjaw – The only problem I have about this is that Rainflower, Crookedstar’s own mother, asked for him to be named it. I’m just glad Shellheart stood up for him, but I just didn’t like this name when I was reading Crookedstar’s Promise because of Rainflower.

2) Lostface – This name is very rude to Brightheart. Yes, she lost part of her face but you don’t have to rub it in, Bluestar! I’m just glad that Firestar changed it to Brightheart.

Honorable Mentions)
Sneezecloud – Does the cat sneeze a lot? I put this in the honorable mentions place because it’s just a weird name to name a kit, yet I still sort of like the name because it’s cute. 😛

Snookthorn – I’m not even going to get into it. 😛

1) Clawface – Really? REALLY??? Why, just why? It’s bad enough that a queen named their kit Clawkit, but the leader at that point (I forgot who it was… Raggedstar?) just decided to name him Clawface? Oh geez…

Anyways, that’s my article! I hope you guys enjoyed, and I would love to hear your opinions! 😀

Great article! Your reasons behind why the names could’ve been better are solid, and then there are the names that you just have to be “why…why?” Everyone understands that! ☺️

I agree with most of these, though I do kind of like the name Twigbranch because of why Bramblestar chose it. Great article! 😀

I agree Brightkit 😊 I really love the reason why Bramblestar chose that warrior name for her.

I hate podlight, hootwhisker, whiskernose…even though these cats aren’t main, you can’t just think of these weird names for them! I’d also like to see more furs, pelts, tails, claws…more thing to do with cats

i politely disagree, i feel like there are so many suffixes out there why are the basic ones used so much! “fur” just captures no personality in the name apart from maybe a pelt colour. oh starclan why! <3

Foxheart. I laughed my head off in Yellowfang’s Secret when I heard that name.
Foxheart. Maybe I am one now…

finleap. Why is finleap a thing?

Most of these I agree with. Harrybrook and other Skyclan names are because of the kittypet origins of many of the cats, and though they are stupid, I like Bellaleaf and Harrybrook. (Was that a runon?) I’m glad to see stuff like Hawkfrost or Runningwind aren’t on here though, because those names are awesome!

I think that if Deadfoot kept his name Hopkit, he would have a different warrior name, what do you think it would be?

Twigbranch is honestly real bad, though I get what Bramblestar chose it.

You included a lot of names that I would never have thought of. Supa cool.

Fight me! I am the DoG!
