I've recently renamed my boys. My BF suggested Squishy and I came up with pickle as a temporary name. It just doesn't suit either of them because Pickle isn't green and Squishy is anything but adorable.

I've named them Zuko and Sokka from Avatar because I'm a fan and their personalities seem to sinc up. My red DT is aggressive and moody, so he's named Zuko and my pale blue/purple dragonscale is so goofy, eating all the time and whot not it just seems to work for me.

I got two of my boys at the same time and wanted to keep a theme going with their names since I also had an unnamed baby. I had just watched Alice in wonderland and decided to go with some of my favorite characters. So my boys were named Absolem and Bayard. The baby was going to be either Alice or Kingsleigh depending on if it were a boy or a girl. He turned out to be a boy, and I also have another baby who I'm calling Nivens, but I am still a little undecided on that. My little girl is named Princess Petunia just because she is the cutest little thing ever and needed a cutesy little name to go with her personality :)

Betta Boys- Bayard, Absolem, Kingsleigh, Nivens and Draco
Betta Girls- Petunia, Dahlia, Daisy, Lily, Lotus, Lavender, Honeysuckle, Orchid, Tulip, Peony, Bellflower, Poppy, Buttercup, Iris and Magnolia

We had originally kept to royal titles because the boys we originally bought looked so into themselves and that's where 'Prince' and 'King' come from, our next move was a veil tail and he's a complete softy with the name of 'Duke'. We got a girl next and decided to fall upon Disney princesses and named her 'Cinderella', she's a white HMPK. The next find was tricky since her colour hadn't exactly come through and the idea to name her after a gemstone of the colour she came to be was the plan so all of them together, "Sapphire, Emerald, Amethyst and Ruby" came to be 'Sear' which turned to 'Arse' as her personality became violent but once her colour showed she calmed down and became 'Amethyst' although a member here suggested 'Seppoku'? Which meant suicide in Chinese? Not quite sure. As for our last elephant boy? It was simply .. Ele from Elephant turned to Elliott. Suits him good enough. :P

They make me oh so happy~

Dubya is so named because he reminded me of a former US President. He is always on the lookout for WMBD - Weapons of Mass Betta Destruction.

He flares when the light on the heater comes on. He flares at the red in the bottom of the thermometer and attacks it. He flares when a stray stem from a plant floats by.

A guy just never knows when these things might be betta assassins in disguise, huh?

Well... At least he doesn't think all suction caps just SHOULDN'T be there then proceed to attack then until they pop off. He thinks he's so smart ...

My fishy is a pale yellow female crowntail with big black eyes like the shiny button eyes on Lambchop -- a hand puppet from a popular early 60s kiddie show on tv. The sock puppet was cute with an innocent (totally blank) expression.

New girls:

-Jadzia Dax: She has dalmation spots on her fins and is a teal color, like Jadzia's uniform was teal green like my girl is, plus the character is a Trill host, which have spots on the sides of their face.

-Aviendha: she's red, and has odd shaped fins (I think she has a double-tail gene or something, it's shaped almost like DT, but not evenly, and I don't think it's a tear. We shall see if it heals... Anyway, she has really interesting eyes, they are gold with a black bar in the center. She looks very tribal, so I went with Aviendha, a character from Robert Jordan's Wheel of TIme series, who has red hair and is from a tribal type nation.

-Arya Stark: she's a baby, a ruddy brown cambodian with a mask, so Arya she is. Arya is young and small and with the "Faceless Men" in George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. It fits her quite well.

My bettas: D'Argo + the girls Jullanar, Lalla, Razz, Rayleigh, Aviendha, Arya, & Lovelylocks
plus the other guys Toni, Eli, and Clinton (platy, guppy, and molly) a kuhli- Burt, 2 yoyos- Duncan and Ma, and otos, Laurel, Hardy, Larry, Curly, and Moe, plus the kitty, Clara the Impossible Girl.
SIP: Turk (teal VT), Azul (royal blue VT), Jerrica Benton (pink cambo CT), Lady Amalthea (blue cambo CT), and Jadzia Dax (blue VT)

....all my names for my fish come from, or are based from, World of Warcraft. >.>

Leroy...as in LEROOOOOY JENKINSSSSS!
-My first betta, and the one who started the 'theme' naming. I hadn't had a name for him yet, but I made a comment to my sister and her bofriend and he's the one who suggested it. Based on Leroy's active aggressiveness. You walk up to his tank and he's all like 'wanna fight? Come on, let's go...I CAN TAKE YOU DOWN!'
Jenkins - SIP - My second betta...to go with Leroy.
Thera - short for Therazane.
Wrynn - a blue and white HM. His coloring reminded me of the Alliance faction.
Khadgar - my newest boy. No reasoning for it...just looked at him in my LPS and the name just fit.

And the three new ladies, as yet unseen...:-p


Lex - Cambodian female CT. Short for 'Alexstrasza'.
A'dal - sherbert-y orange VT lady
Sylvie - slightly marbled(?) CT lady - short for Sylvanas. :)

And those are my fishes, and all their WoW-nerd names.

Betta boys:
Leroy(HM) - Wrynn(HM) - Khadgar(VT) - Chen(DeT) - Carlin (DeT)

Betta girls:
Thera(VT)-A'dal(VT)-Queenie(CT)-Lex(CT)-Lemon(VT)-Rhea(VT)-Ysera(VT)
