For Traditional Naming Guidance
Hello and welcome to Ailuronymy, a blog that specialises in traditional naming, Warriors culture and character development. Please read Housekeeping before asking in, and check the lists before requesting prefixes or suffixes.
Please do not ask about tribe names.
It's also a good idea to check the other links in this sidebar, as many are full of interesting information, frequently asked questions or fun activities to mess about with.
The askbox is always open. Ailuronymy will not reply to reblog comments. If you have something to say, that's what the askbox is for.
If you want something tagged or made rebloggable, let me know.
Currently, there is only one writer for this blog (Grey Lunarfaith, though these days it seems that Charlie Grey or Jack 'Pumpkinhead' Frostington is just as good; or Dandelionheart, since this is a Warriors blog, after all). Pleasure to meet you.
All anonymous askers are referred to affectionately as 'Ruddles', which is another word for a marigold plant. Do not be alarmed by this, please. It is an old in-joke.

Well, this is outright bizarre. Apparently in the past, Ailuronymy has already been donated a Hivefled Warriors-ify, but since it didn’t show up in the tags, we’ve now got two.
I have no idea how this has happened, but I’m sorry to the Warriors-ifiers for the confusion. Hopefully I’ll be able to find this missing Warriors-ify soon.

Guest Warriors-ify: Hivefled.
"A long time ago, three cats became a part of the Empire, but alas, good things are not meant to last, are they? Their friends spirited them away for their own good, but had no idea what they were in for……Ah, for the cats they ended up with were too thirsty for battle, but their numbers were too few….But ah, the rest is history. This is the story of the thirteen (plus quite a few more) that survived and fled……Yes, they fled their home, seeking safety but instead, they got themselves into the adventure of their lives."

Pardon the quality, I was and still am lacking a scanner, so I had to make do with what I had.
Grey’s notes: Oh my goodness. Thank you. This is adorable.

Anonymous asked: I feel like if you were in the warriors world- you'd be a medicine cat who refers to their patients as Ruddles.
Oh, this is really sweet. Thank you, Ruddles.
I don’t know if I’d be any good as a medicine cat, though.

the-walking-derp asked: Hi, could I possibly get the genetics for a Cream Tabby/Tortoiseshell w/ White litter?
No, because you’re asking the wrong blog again.
I think you’re looking for Warriors OC Help.

Anonymous asked: Hey this might not be the right kind of question for this blog, but what would you think of adapting the warrior clan system and such to a pride of lions? It would be challenging to get as close to the traditional rules as I could, and i'd need to come up with a new list of appropriate names for the setting. Do you have any advice or know any blogs that could help? thank you. <3
Do you know, this isn’t the first kind of question I’ve gotten like this. I got one about dolphins once.
Anyway, the answer, I’m sorry to say, is no. I don’t know any blogs that could help you, and that’s mainly because what kind of help do you actually need?
Just do the thing. You don’t need someone to hold your hand and make the system for you, do you, Ruddles? You can do it, so give it a try. If you get really stuck somehow, you’re welcome to come back and ask in, but I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to help you much with this.

Anonymous asked: Hey, I sent in an ask before with a character hoping to be rated, and I'm not sure if it got through. Should I repost, or did you get it?
If it hasn’t been answered by now, then yes, you’ll have to send it in again.
Do you see how vague this is? “I sent in a character, did you get it?” I get sent a lot of characters. How am I supposed to know which is yours? Ghosts, come on. You’re not making this easy for either of us, Ruddles.

Anonymous asked: ah sorry grey! I should have worded that better ;^; I mean I wasn't sure if amber/yellow was more of a rare eye color for cats, so it would be strange to have a clan full of kitties with amber eyes if they were rare. oh dear. I don't think that helped..
Oh, I understand now. Hmm, if that’s your concern, I think we can fix it.
Try this blog:
They’re extraordinarily helpful when it comes to questions like that (much more than I am), and I think they’ll be able to direct you to useful resources if you ever need to work out the likelihood of genetics and what else.

Anonymous asked: about Littlecloud possibly not liking she-cats, he had a crush on Cinderpelt so I don't know about that. unless he's bi or pans
I’m not sure what you’re talking about?
Erin Hunter (specifically Vicky Holmes) suggested Littlecloud didn’t like she-cats. It’s not my opinion, it’s literally what she said.
I don’t think it’s credible enough to be cited as canon (but if you want to headcanon, go ahead). It was all a publicity stunt anyway, so whatever.
Then again, it’s probably worth pointing out that not all crushes are sexual, or even romantic. Platonic crushes are totally a thing.

Anonymous asked: that is what i meant, thank you!
I’m sorry, but what?
Ruddles, I don’t know who you are or what you’re talking about. Time goes by, I forget about stuff, and - no offense intended - all the Ruddles look kind of the same. It gets difficult to keep track of you individually.
This is why it’s kind of important to identify yourselves (a cute nickname or whatever you want)/reference what post you’re on about when you talk to me. I get very confused.
