So I don't usually do this....

....But I'm at a bit of a name loss here. xD
Lol, well....okay so he had a name, but after a week of observing him it really doesn't quite.....fit him like I thought it did, and for the life of me I can't seem to place a good name for him. After MUCH pondering along with a couple of friends and no luck, I thought I might ask well ask my online fishy community and see what you guys think. xD

Now, as far as names go, I've generally kept with a rather geeky theme of naming fish after characters from various different series(books/comics/movies/shows/anime...)for the past couple of years, so I'd like to find a character to name him after. I know way too many books/comics/movies/shows/anime to name them all, but I'm fairly familiar with most of the more popular ones if that helps any.....I'm not really a gamer though. xD

Personality-wise this guy is quite spunky. Hes not at all shy to circle me like a little shark when I'm doing partial water changes with the siphon, hes incredibly curious about anything and everything, and spends most of the day swimming back and forth and in circles around the front of his tank watching me on the computer or doing various things around my room. However, he won't really flare....I got him to do it when I first brought it home, but he doesn't seem to react to the mirror anymore.

Aaaaaand last by not least, a couple of shots of him:




So....anyone have any suggestions? xD

Oh goodness I've been going though LOTR names for him as possibilities. I didn't think of Gandalf though just because he doesn't seem to be the....old/wise type you know? Hes so young and spunky. xD
I've been considering Legolas though, because of his eyes and his green/teal iridescence....but I wanted to see some other suggestions. xD
