Naming Guide

Post by Daisyleap on Mon Oct 12, 2015 9:30 pm

On Blazing Tails of Grief and Fortune, we accept a wide variety of name prefixes and suffixes. From the traditional 'fire-' and '-tail' to the complex, noncanon 'amaranth-' and '-snout'. It is required that your character's name goes along with their appearance. For example, don't name a pure white cat Darkstorm. The list of acceptable prefixes and suffixes is most definitely not finished, and it would be great if you have suggestions.

Within this guide is a list of prefixes and suffixes in alphabetical order along with a description and cats they would usually be named by. Of course these are only suggestions, so in no means does your cat need to comply to them in any way. 

As a reminder, no cat is named for their eye color. Kittens are born with their eyes closed and open them about two weeks later, and even then they will all be blue-gray until they reach closer to adulthood.
