I name my betta's after the gems or colors that they match most closely. Diamond is my white halfmoon who has bits of yellow in his bottom fins and he started the trend because I could just not think of anything better. Which is how I came up with Amethyst, Sapphire (Illusion), Marble-Jade and Jasper (Steel) after.

Just makes me wish I could find a red I liked so I could have a Ruby or Garnet in there.

For the "other additions" to my tanks I went with names of characters from a game I've been involved with because I'm a dork like that.

Male Bettas: Jasper (PK), Gold Dust (PK) Iced Steel (EE HM)
Other: Faith, Frankie, Sonic, Ashley & Anna (Juli cory catfish), Mr. Bristles (albino bristlenose pleco), The Shrimples (dozen ghost shrimp)

Wow, I love all these names! Great ideas!

Betta's are abused everyday, just because they
can live in small spaces doesn't mean they
want to. Respect Betta's and they will respect

you.



My loyal Bettas:

R.I.P

BlueBerry - Blue Female Betta

StrawBerry - Red Female Betta



Animals are special, they are patient and loyal.
Never abuse animals, they don't deserve it.

Raph got his name 'cause he's got red, and I thought of Raphael (TMNT BABEH) and yeah.

The Rev's named for The Rev of A7X. I thought of Jimmy when I was staring at my pretty on the way home after buying him. And thought his colors were so pretty and he looked so happy, even in the teeny cup. Reminded me of Jimmy and how care-free and spirited he was. So he Became The Reverend Tholomew Plague, The Rev! <3

All of my bettas are and will continue to be named after Skyrim characters. In fact, all of my fish and aquarium related stuff have Skyrim names.

Paarthurnax - dragon scale betta and very friendly, so the name suited him
Alduin - halfmoon double tail that's all black with awesome blue scaling. Not a dragon scale betta, but good enough for the name :P

Then I had Fus, Ro, and Dah, my comet goldfish. Only one remaining is Ro right now :( She will have friends again though.

I also have a Venus Fly Trap named Krosis after the dragon priest mask.

Edit: I would like to add that my boyfriend and myself are huge gamers and we plan to name all of our pets after video games. I think our future Australian Shepherd is going to be named "Wheatly" from Portal. Not sure about our future cat, Chameleon, or bird though :P

Decided to name my next fish after super heros. Marvel of course.
And then I want to have some named after all the doctors and then some companions... and of course a beautiful deep blue female named T.A.R.D.I.S.

Galileo and Aristotle are both names after famous figures in history.
Galileo theorized that the earth rotates around the sun, not the other way around, and also invented the telescope to prove this theory true.
Aristotle (name meaning "the best purpose") was a philosopher, and a teacher of Alexander the Great.
I'm getting into a streak of naming my fish after famous faces in ancient history.
