Well, it was a short story actually...
To all those basketball fans in this forum, it will be pretty easy to why I picked the name 'Lebron' for my Betta. He's really red overall and so is Miami Heat. (That's the team the player Lebron is in) And my Betta has a white face such as Lebron's sweatband in some cases. That's pretty much it, should makes sense. xD

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

Godric, Eric and Sookie are characters from True Blood
Frodo and Sam are characters from Lord of the Rings
Ghengis, Attilla and Hannibal are warlords
Thor, Skadhi, Sunna, Mani and Freija and several of my gods
Mead is named for the drink, which is made from honey since he's a bumblebee platy
TARDIS is named for the time machine from Doctor Who since he's TARDIS blue
Crowley, LaVey, Dahmer, Ripper and Al are named after Aleister Crowley, Anton LaVey, Jeffrey Dahmer, Jack the Ripper and Albert Fish, all people that were considered "evil" or "wicked"

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.

Godric/Eric/Sookie/Frodo/Sam/Vlad/Rasputin/Genghis/Hannibal/TARDIS/
LaVey/Crowley/Dahmer/Ripper/Al/Thor/Skadhi/Freija/Sunna/Mead/Mani/
Loki/Grendel/Gail/Beowulf/Camilla/River/Bathory/Arwen/Lafayette/Deb/Jack Skellington (soon)

Anyone watch River Monsters? Junior's full name is Jeremy Wade Junior, named after the guy in that show. Junior's a little River Monster. ;)

Zen is a very peaceful betta for the most part; he is currently sharing a divided tank with Shaka and almost never flares. He usually just swims around all peace-ful like :) When I get him his own tank, it's going to be zen garden themed.

Baby Shaka is super tiny (hence the baby) and Shaka is the name of the sign they have in Hawaii that more or less means "Aloha"!

Melody Pond is named after a major character in Doctor Who.
Blue Jeans is named after the fact that he looks like he's made out of acid washed jeans.
Sunspot is so named because he is yellow and has a black spot on him, and he is a complete egomaniac, lol.
And I need to find a name for my new doubletail boy ... :)

Only a few of my fish have names that aren't completely random.

Penny-after the character on Big Bang Theory
Tuko-The evil drug lord on Breaking Bad. Tuko has red eyes and looks evil, and he was unnamed until we started watching the seasons.
Honey bee- my bf picked out a beehive with honeybees on it when we first got him (it fits since he's a yellow pineapple)
Cracker-We were driving home and she kept swimming like she was crazy at the bottom of her cup when the bf said "what's that crazy cracka doing?" and she's a creamy color...so it stuck.
Marge-She's blue with yellow fins, and Marge on the Simpsons is yellow with blue hair. (Honey bee's name was originally going to be Homer, but he just didn't seem like a Homer)
