My new Betta!

This is my new Betta, i need name suggestions. I got him from a 4-H workshop i helped with. I felt bad for him, he was literally in 4 or 5 ounces of water because there was a huge crack that went half way down the container, and nobody wanted him ): he was free, so I'm not losing anything yet.

Can somebody tell me his colors? The picture isn't great. He is off white that leads into bright red double tail fins. In bright light, you can see shiny blue vein like lines on his tail, especially when he flares out.

I have nothing to compare his health to, but he doesn't appear dull in color, his fins seem intact but he seems slightly lethargic.

He has had a very stressed day, so i am putting him in another tank in a few hours so he can relax. Any other tips for me? Thanks!
