LOST NAMES***: Dead-, Fallen-, Flip-, Green-, Hatch-, Haven-, Hope-, Lost-, Snap-, -spirit, Wish-

I've been working on this all week. I made this so people can create quick characters for fanfictions. Try and look for your Warriors name and see what the meanings are! Do they match your character?

PLEASE NOTE that this dictionary is not meant to control character's names or what they truly mean. These are just assumptions for proven canon names! This does not necessarily mean that a name that is not not allowed in the dictionary is automatically invalid. More on that here. Also, the names to do not mean their meanings all at once! Multiple personalities can be pulled from the same name.

In order for a name to get in here, it must be an already established name found in the series. They also need to come from a Clan cat, i.e the character with the name must have been named by at a Clan cat. No names derived from kittypet or rouge names (e.g Ebonyclaw, Bouncefire, Spiresight, etc). I prefer that you prove the name is real by linking me to a wiki page. It also has to be a word that is physical or can be described. Otherwise, it will be put in as a lost name.

Sometimes I get a little slow to update the dictionary, so be sure to check the comments before you ask about a missing name!

BEFORE YOU SUGGEST NEW NAMES, PLEASE use the Cntrl/Command F function to make sure your name has not already been added, put in the description as a lost name, or defined in the comments section.

I DO NOT COUNT ANCIENT [DAWN OF THE CLANS] NAMES. They aren't structured the same way that modern names are, with their name being separated by a space and the fact that they do not change at certain stages of life. But the biggest reason is because the prefixes and suffixes work in conjunction for the real interpretation of the the character. 

*Reading through the dictionary, you might have noticed that the sacred names have "Fan Universe" next to it. This means that these names are only valid when you are in a fan universe and Thunder, Wind, River, and Shadow did not found the Clans. I put these in the dictionary because even though they are sacred, they appear in the books unmistakenly. (Addendum: Due to the introduction of Shadowkit, I am currently thinking about removing this label, but until I make a decision, it's staying.)

**When browsing through the suffix section, you may notice most of them say "appearance of x," for example, -nose would say "appearance of nose." This does not mean that the character appears to have a nose, it means they have a particular feature of their nose that makes them stand out. 
***"Lost Names" are names that are real, but cannot be given a concrete meaning. They often are not physical, so the reason why a cat has that name will vary from case to case. Sometimes they can't really be determined at birth, so all the reasons for the name must be oddly specific. Lost Names are rare, but it does happen!

I need help with two cats - sisters - who are complete opposites in appearance and attitude. Their names used to be Summerstar and Winterheart, but I’ve grown out of terrible, non canon names. Could you assist me with names please?
OwlLoverForever2202 Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Writer
Winter is a white-furred She-cat with dark blue eyes, while Summer was a golden tabby she-cat with amber eyes. Winter is cold-hearted, mean, jealous, and vengeful, while Summer is kind, loving, understanding and merciful

ok, so I need some help please. I have a she-cat who is adventurous, who usually daydreams, and a bit on the depressed side. I really need a suffix for her, her prefix is running but if someone as a better prefix I'm happy to hear. Thank you.

I've read through a few times and yet I still can't seem to find a good fit for two apprentices of mine. Could you help?

Apprentice 1
Name: Amberpaw
Gender: female
Appearance: a short furred black she-cat with amber eyes
Personality: patient, sneaky, reserved, malicious, clever, mellow, can be aggressive, fluid, sweet talker, a little flirty, merciless, light on her paws
Skills: an extraordinary fighter, an adequate hunter, able to cover up her tracks, good at gathering information (verbally), flawless liar, clean killer

Apprentice 2
Name: Nightpaw
Gender: tom
Appearance: a handsome, short furred black tom with white flecks on his chest and yellow eyes
Personality: bold, courageous, smart, outgoing, his kills are a little messy (but that's what Amberpaw is for), impatient sometimes, patient others, he's a good liar but not like Amberpaw
Skills: great fighter, better hunter, silent, all she-cat are ears over tail for him, a great planner, good at gathering information (physically)

They are siblings

Thank you!

Okay, so i'm not sure if this counts, but in the new books, there is a cat with the suffix -flake, Fidgetflake.
NaviMeows Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I thought that that’s translated from another language and will probably be different in the English version... or am i wrong? Sweating a little...
