Help me name my boys!

Usually a name 'clicks' with me, but I am at a total loss for these guys. To warn you, there will be quite a few pictures.

First guy is my 'carpe diem' betta. He is very active: always checking things out, flares well, makes a LOT of bubble nests.





Next is this metallic boy. Not as active as the other one, but does the little 'wiggle dance' every time he sees me.





Next is the other metallic guy. Very curious and into exploring his tank.



Then we have my copper butterfly HM. I don't have a picture of him unfortuately, but he looks sort of like this. He's pretty languid!

Last but not least, my new guy. He's got a little bit of green 'lipstick' which I love. He seems pretty active too!





Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

For your DS boy, I'm thinking Salt 'n Pepper. (the second one).

Oh! IT just hit me. For your fourth, the MG, how about OZ? I can just see some green that struck me

Salt & Pepper for the silver one? I think it's a cute name...not the sort I'd normally pick, but it's amusing. :)

For the 2nd one, what about Bronzong/Bronzor? Or just Bronze? Bronze was the 1st thing I thought about when I saw him, *swoon*. That's a pretty fishy. :3 For the last one, what about Sheen? I just saw his green sheen and fell for it...

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

what about "sterling" for the silver plakat?

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've decided to go with Finch and Salt 'n Pepper (i've already been calling him Pepper for short, lol) for the first two.

So now it's just the last three that are still nameless. :)
