Best Themed Names Contest!

This is NOT an official BettaFish.com contest! The staff are NOT involved in anyway.

Best Themed Names!
Contest ends 11/12/13 =)

This is a "NO PRIZE" contest, sorry everyone, it's just for fun. Hope you enjoy!

Now's your chance to explain the meanings behind your Bettas names and to let out your inner geek. =)

For example, 9 of my 10 bettas are named after the characters first and last names from a show called Archer...
Cyril
Figgis
Woodhouse
Wee Baby Seamus
Kane
Krieger
Trinette
McGoon
Gillette


My tenth Betta is too young to determine gender, so its nameless at the moment, but will be named after the show as well. =)

I would love to see photos with each Betta name entered, but not necessary if there is 15 entries! =)

Contest Rules
One entry per person
There must be at least 3 names of Bettas you currently have that follow a theme
You may list as many names as you want/can
Only Bettas, unless it is part of the theme




Winners based on creativity, humor and how well you follow your theme

Thanks for playing! =)

My bettas are all named for characters in British literature. We have:
Pip- from Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations" (I'm working on buying him an "Estella," who Pip was in love with in that book, as a potential mate so I can breed him.)
Becky Sharp- from Thackeray's "Vanity Fair"
Othello, Desdemona, and Iago from Shakespeare's "Othello"

Oh yeah, and there's Captain Jack Sparrow, who doesn't exactly fit with the theme. But I found him at Walmart with advanced fin rot, and he only had 1 eye, so I wanted a piratey type name for him! lol
