I named my boy Odin because Odin means "one" in Russian and he was the first betta I saw in the store and he really caught my eye, so I knew he was the "one".

Flame - Red and Blue Veiltail Male
Oswald - Blue Halfmoon Male

Alacrity is a job ability in Final Fantasy 11 that quickens spellcasting. The actual meaning is a sort of brisk and cheerful readiness which really suits the little VT.

Bartholomew II was named by my husband and I don't know why he's named that

Sunny- I named him this cuz' he's yellow and he really is a little ray of sunshine... he just always seems so perky!
Pablo Picasso- At first his name was "Sir Fishy Fins" but I changed it after a couple weeks because that is really too bold of a name for him... Pablo Picasso was suggested by my sis.

Fishes...Names..??

Well I am new here , even so I have fishes for at least 15-20 years now its beyond me to give a tropical fish a name ...let alone to fantasize about it that he is responding to it
To be a passionate fish keeper is fine with me, but everything has its limits and thats plain crazy, sorry!

I think that naming a pet, no matter what it is, is an important part of the relationship. If it's named you're more likely to care about it as you're emotionally invested. Not always a good thing but makes them more than just "pets".

I'm pretty sure we know that naming all of our fish may be a little weird but I don't really think it's crazy. Naming a plant might be but nothing wrong with naming an animal that has a personality.

I named my red and blue crowntail Tully, after House Tully in Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire. The family's colors are red and blue, and their sigil is a trout. :)

I wish my fish names had a cool inspiration:/. All my bettas have had people names (first was elliot, then louis and henry and now bruce). I just look at them and the first name that comes into my head is always a people name and it sticks :)

Some of my Betta's have inspired names, others are not so much..

Well, there is Blue, who is blue in colour..

Then Casper, who was white..

Tannon, who has a brown body and fins was a play on words, as he reminded me of tannin stained water..

Harley, one of my newer boys was purchased with a rather plain brown body, and orange fins, but has now developed a green/blue hue in his body, and metallic green and blue colours on his fins..

Dargo (the dragon) was named after a character in the TV show Farscape..

My betta's name is Flo. I named him that for no reason, really, but I like to think it was because he's pinkish purplish like the starfish in Finding Nemo (my favourite movie) that was called Flo ;)
