Niklaus, I named him as such because of his colors.

They're bold and strong, like the character from Vampire Diaries. Plus, his color scheme is kind of the "typical Vampire color patterns". Hahaha. I couldn't help myself. I think if I got another Betta, they would have a completely unrelated name though. Niklaus is one of the only characters from that show that I really enjoy.

I have only named one fish. The guy in my avatar is Little Ricky, named after my boss Rick. He sits on my desk at work. When he flares at me I say he's channeling my boss and saying "get back to work!" LOL

My first was Turk. He was a turquoise VT.

Second was Azul. He was a blue VT.

Current is D'Argo (Ka D'Argo) after a character from Farscape his coloring reminds me of. He is an orange-red butterfly VT with black marbling.

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)

OK, my fish are:

Mr. Boy - purple VT that I got for my son's room when he was two... And I let him name the fish.

Cirrus - blue and red HM whose fins are beautiful and flowy like a cloud.

Tyrion - red HM named after Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones because the Lannisters' signature color is red.

Ariel - female blue/turquoise/pink CT, because she reminds me of a mermaid.

And last, my blue marble CT at work is:
Winchester El Fantastico McBadass, named by my brother because a fish that awesome needs an awesome name. But I work for a concrete contractor so we just call him "Conc" most of the time.

I named my boy Patriot because he's red, white, and blue. My girl is Tiny Tina, named after the character from the video game Borderlands. She's tiny and vicious. x3

My friend chose the name Cadence because my fish has black edging around his scales that are thicker in some places and they look like bands sometimes which reminded her of a drum cadence.

1 solid red VT Male. (He's my baby!)

So I name my fish by what they remind me of. Like a thing a place or a color.

Briseis- She is a Blue CT. Her tail reminded me of the Troy ships. So I named her after the Troy priestess that fell in love with Achilles.

Opal- She is a VT that's White and pink with a purple hue. That reminded me of an Opal stone.

Jensen- She is a redish orange VT. She remind me of the sunsets in Jensen beach, Fl. One of favorite places in the world.

Magenta- She is a White, Red and Blueish CT. My sister named her but I like the name so much that it stuck.

Duck- He is a Blue, Red and Greenish HMDT. He is my two year sons betta. Not sure why he named him that but he loves Duck and feeds and talks to him everyday.

Mercedes- She is my baby VT. Her colors are still coming in. I pick her name by how fast she was swimming and also I just got done reading a book about Mercedes Benz cars. The name fits her well.
