Prefixes That Should be Used in Warriors by Briarpaw

Art by Kulay-Abo (base by candy-behemoth)

Briarpaw lists some prefixes that should be used in the series. What other prefixes do you think are nice, but haven’t been seen in the books?

Hi! I’m back with a new article! I’ve decided to make an article about prefixes that for some reason, have not been used in Warriors so far. Feel free to use any in a fanfic, and comment below some other ones! I have checked the wiki for all of these prefixes, to make sure none of them have been used. Here we go!

Stream- this name has been used as a suffix many times, but never as a prefix. I find that dissapointing, because it is such a pretty prefix and I hope there is a Streamkit born into the clans sometime soon.

Gorge- this has never been used as a suffix or prefix. When I think of the prefix Gorge, I think of a broad ginger cat.

Branch- again, I’m surprised. Branch has yet to be used as a prefix.

Sprout- I think that would be a cute name for a kit, wouldn’t you think?

Soil- I think it’s an okay name.

Earth- It’s a good name, but I see why it isn’t used.

Honeysuckle- honeysuckle has been mentioned in the books, but it has yet to be a prefix. It is a mouthful of a name, but then again, so are Dandelionkit and Marigoldkit.

Bubble- I think it’s another cute kit name. Bubblekit.

Flick- I think of a black and white kit when I think of this name.

Tree- We have yet to see a Treekit. We have all of these tree prefixes- Maple, Aspen, and Birch to name a few- so why not just go for the whole catagory?

Funguskit- it makes me think of a gray kit, and I can see why this name may not be used. It may sound like the kit is ugly. But we can’t ignore fungi. We have plant and animal prefixes, and I don’t think a cat would know what bacteria or protists are, but there have bound to be fungi growing in the forest.

Umber- for those who don’t know, umber is a (taken directly from the Google dictionary):


a natural pigment resembling but darker than ocher, normally dark yellowish-brown in color ( raw umber ) or dark brown when roasted ( burnt umber ).
a brownish-gray moth with coloring that resembles tree bark.

So it is not just a pigment, but a moth, too!

Butterfly- Moth is a prefix, so why not Butterfly? The closest thing we have to butterfly currently is Flutterpaw.

Dock- not enough herbs make it as prefixes. There are a bunch of herbs that I think would make good prefixes.

Herb prefix list:
… and many more! (I literally went into the wiki and searched herbs 😛 )

Falcon- this has never been a modern clan prefix, but we did have a Falcon Swoop.

Stick- this has never been a prefix, but there is a cat named Stick.

Wisp- I think this is an interesting name.

And with that, I conclude my article! I hope you liked it and can agree with me, and as I said before, comment below other prefixes you think should be used! Thank you, and have a nice day! ~Briarpaw

I think Shimmer, it is pretty.
Song it is a suffix, yet not a prefix
Light, a ginger and white she-cat don’t you think,
WE NEED MORE WATER NAMES (splash,moss,pebble,bank,stream,etc)

Wasn’t there a Gorgepaw that Tigerstar the 1st killed. You know the kit Firestar carried in the 1st or 2nd book.

Earth was Tree’s original name, so it was technically used after this article was written
