The following is a list of prefixes and suffixes for clan characters, as well as tips for when it comes to naming your character if you're looking for some help!

Members are not required to follow this, but are encouraged to.

ABOUT PREFIXES

Kits should be named for any of the following:

-Pelt color and/or pattern
-Size
-Genetic quirks that won't impact the kit's life
-Coat texture

Kits should not be named for the following:

- Debilitating defects. It would act like a name-change prefix and predetermine the kit's suffix, without giving the kit a chance to earn a name for their skills or personality.
- Eye color. Kits don't open their eyes till they're almost a half-moon old, and besides, their eyes are all blue-gray for quite some time. With warriors, there are usually traits that stand out more than eye color, and thus you should name for those instead.
- Personality. Very young kits' personalities won't have developed enough yet to warrant a name.
- Sound, or lack of. All kits are noisy, and if not, they're probably not well. Things such as Song- represent the cat in no way.
