I probably didn’t get all of the characters with bad names, so if you know of another one, type it in the comment section below. Also, I’m changing their names to what they should be if they have the same prefix.

Deadfoot~ Deadfoot is just a terrible name regardless of if he had a limp or not. Who would ever name their kit “Deadkit?” His name should be Deadclaw or Deadtooth.

Lostface~ Lostface was the name Bluestar gave Brightpaw after the dogs attacked her. I know you were mad at StarClan Bluestar, but did you really have to take it out on another cat? Lostface/Brightpaw already has a different name: Brightheart.

Loudbelly~ Loudbelly has a loud belly? Loud is just a terrible prefix, but LoudBELLY?! Loudbelly’s name should be Loudclaw or Loudriver.

Hollowbelly~ Same as Loudbelly. It could have been Hollowfur or Hollowpelt, but belly? Really Mistystar?

Foxheart~ Foxheart is a cool name, but it also means he’s fox hearted, which he is not. His name should be Foxpelt.

Runningnose~ So what if he had a running nose? They didn’t have to express it in his name! Runningnose’s name should be Runningwind (which is already a cat, but still….)

Barkface~ Barkface’s name is just cruel. He has bark on his face. What? His name should be…. well I can’t really think of a good name for the prefix “bark.”

Harrybrook~ You can’t just add a suffix to whatever name you want! It could be Hairybrook, but that would be just plain mean. Harrybrook’s name should have just stayed as Harry.

Billystorm~ Same as Harrybrook you can’t add a suffix to whatever name you want! Billystorm should also have stayed as Billy.

Mousewing~ Mice don’t have wings! Mousewing’s name should be Mousefern or Mousepelt.

Crookedjaw~ So what if he has a crooked jaw? And what mother would name her kit Crookedkit? His name should be Crookedtree.

Twigbranch~ Twigs and branches are pretty much the same thing! Twigbranch’s name should be Twigtail.

Echosnout~ Okay first of all, cats don’t have snouts. They have muzzles. Echosnout’s name should be Echowind.

Now that I’m done, please put your comments about their names, my names, or anything about this article in the comment section below. I hope you liked my article seeing that this is the second on I’ve done!

Thanks! Riverkit out.

  • I do agree with some of the names like Lostface, Foxheart, and Twigbranch but to be honest, could you make a 6-book series with all sorts of different names?

    Otherwise, I do see why you put those names on there.
