Help Me Name Him!

I was going to wait until he actually arrived, but I am too anxious, so help me come up with a name for this beauty. Keep in mind, I am VERY name picky, but you never know what I might like, so throw it out there!

Originally I was thinking of Sugar Rush from the new movie "Wreck-It-Ralph" but then my boyfriend's little bro said it sounded like a name that a woman of a certain profession might have so that completely ruined that name for me, at least for a fish. The fish in my avatar that I did a painting of was named Smaug (SIP), but I don't really like re-using names, as much as I adore that name, especially because I had him for so long and he inspired me to become a better betta owner.

So I am probably looking for a name that is either from something in nerdom, such as video games, Magic the Gathering, a fantasy book series, etc, or a cool sounding foreign word that means dragon, giant, etc. But here is the catch, I want it to be masculine (sort of), but also either sound beautiful or feel "pink". So I guess a species or family of flowers might work for a name too.





Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

Personally, with his coloring I'd name him Blush. I don't really have any name ideas based on what you like, but that's the name I'd give him. Congrats again!

Maybe something like Octavius? or perhaps something like Akriel. (personally I'm fond of angels names. Not commonly used and most are very pretty.) Or perhaps Ryuu which means dragon in Japanese.

If you want a name more giant related, you could go with the obvious Goliath, or you could go with Fenris which comes from Scandinavian mythology. Fenris was a giant wolf who had the power to threaten the gods.

happy owner of a wild type GFP axolotl named Percival and too many guppies to count.

Thanks for all the great suggestions so far! Definitely considering a few. I also forgot to post that Ymir is the one name I had been considering before making the post, and it is still in the running!

Piscis is Latin for fish.

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.
