Tips and tricks for nameing your OC by Oliver

Oliver gives tips for naming original characters inspired by Warrior Cats.

hello! I’m Oliver and today I’m going to talk about names, more specifically warrior names. If you’ve ever made a warrior OC you probably know is no simple task finding the right name. I’ve found multiple things that probably will help with this tedious task. So without further ado, I present tips and tricks for naming your OC. (The first part is things to remember when naming an OC, the second part is a name dictionary com epleat with meanings)

(part 1)
Properly naming a character can be tricky. There are some do’s and don’t’s to it. We should first start with the canon rules for what goes into a name:

1. The prefix is given to a cat just after birth and is named after their looks, an event that happened during their birth, or they’re named after someone else. (There are other special cases (see Brokenkit) but these are the most common.)
2. The suffix is given to cats at their warrior/medicine cat ceremony by their leader/mentor. They can be named for their appearance, talents, and achievements, or they can be named after someone else. (Other symbolic reasons also apply.)
3. The suffixes -paw and -star are reserved for apprentice and leader positions. They cannot be given for any other reason and they cannot be prefixes.
4. The prefixes Thunder-, Shadow-, River-, and Wind- are sacred prefixes and cannot be used. *This only applies to official universe fanfictions. If you’re using original Clans, this does not apply. It’s up to you to decide if your founder’s names are sacred.
5. Sacred prefixes (like Moon-) can sometimes be valid as suffixes.
6. In special cases, cats may be renamed for something they gained after birth.

Also, consider the circumstances of their birth and the personality/preferences of the mother. Some queens are practical and straight to the point, so they’d simply name their kits for an obvious physical feature. Some mothers are more symbolic and will name their kits after something else.

Some other things to know:
DO use words that cats have knowledge of of. They don’t have to be canon, they just have to make sense.
DO use names that are associated with cats of similar personalities (to your character). (Example: A cat can be named Fire___, but we won’t just assume they’re ginger, we’ll associate the name with courage and boldness.)
DO consider which Clan they are from. (More on this later)
DON’T use a name just because it sounds good. Have a reason behind your character’s name.
DON’T make the prefix personality-based (example: Braveclaw).
DON’T base the prefix off eye color. Kits don’t open their eyes at the time of naming, and once they are open, they are blue for a while.

Where a warrior is from can also influence their personality and name, since each Clan has a unique culture and knowledge of their environment. Think about what the individual Clans you’re dealing with are known for, and what type of territory they live in. For example, ThunderClan lives in a thick forest. They are known for their bravery and big hearts. Naturally, their warriors will be fierce and be named after forest plants and animals.
