I always name my bettas from characters in the pirates of the caribbean. I'm starting a sorority soon though so I might need to come up with different names.. I can only think of 3 women in pirates of the caribbean. XD

That's funny Wolfie, I named my new boy after Skyrim - Vilkas. He was always my favorite of the companions, and I love how he's portrayed as a smart, strong man rather than a typical warrior.

When I got my betta I had no idea what I was going to name him. I brought him home and my brother suggested Ash or Zane (H20: Just Add Water), so I ended up naming the fishy after Mako Island on H20.

When I start my sorority, I already have 4 names reserved for 4 of the girls: Emma, Rikki, Cleo, and Bella. LOL

Mako- Male CT

Skylar
Cherokee
Shadow
(parakeet, horse, and dog)

Hoping to start a sorority soon, wish me tons of luck!

Well my newest betta stopped the pirates of the Caribbean name trend. He didn't seem like any pirates and I ended up naming him dragon.

Wystan means "battle stone" and he was a brutish aggressive viking-fish when I got him. The Magster was named after a Dickens character than reminds me of him personality-wise. Seemingly surly and dangerous, but really sweet and simple. And Padan Fain is from my WoT fantasy series. A character that ends up diseased and obsessed with murdering the lead male. Fain came to me diseased and determined to annihilate anything that he thought might *possibly* maybe be another male. Now's he just a brat.



Wystan -- Pastel DeltaT Male -- 3 gallon
Abel Magwitch -- Wild-type RT King Male -- 20-gallon divided
Unnamed -- Red Butterfly? HM Male -- 20-gallon divided



Loki -- American Eskimo Dog -- 8 years
Kiara -- "Domesticated" Feline -- 5 years
Horatio -- Hermit Crab -- 5 years?

Usually I just think of random words that fit the fishes color or personality and whichever sticks, stays. The only fish I have with a story behind his name is Nightmare. He used to be called Luna, until I figured out he was the one attacking the girls in the sorority he was in (I could have sworn he was female! D:). After I removed him from the sorority and got him his own tank, I asked for name suggestions here, and someone suggested Nightmare. Not only am I a huge MLP fan (Princess Luna = Nightmare Moon, heh), but the whole 'nightmare' he caused in the sorority just made the name stick.
I also have my three twilight themed girls Alice, Bella and Rosalie. But my mom named them, so I don't really count them. XD
Otherwise, it's basically like this:
"Oh, you spin in circles? Hm...lets call you Dizzy!"
"Hey, you have a colorful tail. Your name is Skittles!"
"You are pink. Pink is a sweet color. Truffles are sweet. Your name is Truffle."
"You are green. Lyra is a green pony. Your name is Lyra."
"lol I just want to call you Kryptonite because can."
And so on and so forth...


*Betta Boys* Loki, Koda, Domino, Kankri *Lizards* Leo, Gatorade, Ruby, Sozan *Snake* Nagaina *Tarantula* Pepper
*Hermit Crabs* Broseph, Sheldon, Pickles *Rabbits* Cloud, Peter *Conure* Frankie *Horse* Tango
*Rat* Snowball *Puffers* Mr. Puffer Fish, Lady Puffer Fish *Cats* Sammy, Rusty, MJ, Snipe, Sakura, Terezi

[QUOTE=lilyrazen;1079176]I always love hearing the stories of people naming their fish, so ramble on.

I'm a crazy perfectionist with OCD so a month in and my 4 boys still have nothing.

I was going to go with band names that i love but nothing fit quite right, (Incubus, Metallica, In Flames, Chimaira, The Mars Volta??) not for fishies i think.

Then i was going to go with Coop (Sheldon Cooper) Witz (Howard Wolowitz) Pali (Raj Koothrappali) and Hoff (Leonard Hofstadter) but then Hoff is too much like "the Hoff" and i have a 5th tank set up for a gorgeous boy that was sold before i got back to the shop and i can't think of a 5 part male dynamic that i like.

Then there are the muppet characters that i'm leaning more closely to cause there's alot of possibilities (Statler, Waldorf, Cookie, Grover, Snuffy, Bert, Ernie, Elmo, Kermit, Gonzo, Animal, Telly etc.)
I'm just too indecisive, It took me a week to name my puppy Oscar.... that in mind I kinda started with the muppets theme didn't I?

Oh Oh Oh did i just decide on a theme? I think i did Woo Hoo!!! ok so in order I would like to introduce Statler, Waldorf, Cookie, Telly and Oscar (my pup)

YEY!!!

YEY!!!
You love Incubus! I love Incubus! About time I found someone else who loves them! I was going to call my daughter Brandon Boyd Jones... Chimaira would have been a cool name for a betta.

Gone AWOL....
