My bettas all get named after greek deities, based on either colour or personality. My rats are all literary characters, based on their personalities. :)

Life.

sofar iv only named two kinda based on color. my 2 goldies ones wall white with a lil orange on his spine others orange with white on his belly and tip of back fin. orange in yin and whites yang lol cuz they r oposites and they folow ea othr around non stop :P

my pleco was on personality. the day i got him he sat on a river rock on the sand and every time id eather point at him or get eye level hes frill all up showing his spines as if saying "what you want some?" sence common plecos have the spines i named him Vlad like the impaler lol cause he acted all tough n showed his spines lol both bettas i aint had long both unnamed =[ i was thinking of named red ct Genghis he was all shy at first and he likes company i put in yin [the smaller goldie] to see what hed do and he loved him. no fun nipping no chasing just harmony :O and Genghis had many[well a few at least :P] folowers ^.^ as for the vt.. no idea his color might still be changing i dont wana name him somehting based on his color and the way he acts. and then he go from black to green O.o how awesome would the name like B52 be for a green fish lolol! [as in B52 bomber]

i named 1 after a frnds deceased betta, Pedro. i named Mister because on the car ride i home i said "listen up mister you better not die" and then my mom said to name him Mister. Sister, well it was a girl name that rhymed with Mister. Sir, well it was a formal male ame like "mister" and it started with an "s" like "Sister" so i named him sir. now i need a name for my new 1...its like a cow... lol...so far im leanen on Daisy because cows are commonly named Daisy lol

I really enjoy giving non-human things (animals) incredibly regular human names. It's amusing. Just think about it... I have this fish called a Betta fish aka siamese fighting fish with a shiny blue body and fiercly red fins. This fish is extremely territorial and hostile toward other males. It will fight to the death. His name is.......lyle. So regular and unassuming haha. I'm not going to name my fish Cyclone or Electra or something like that. It's gotta be classy lol. Either that or my next fish will be named after some characters from my favourite movies/ cartoons.

My betta's name is lyle. I'm Tom

Here's my channel.
