I named my boy Miles after Miles Austin my favorite Dallas Cowboys player. He is a very pretty blue and white which also happens to be the Cowboys colors for the most part.

I get my names from all over....I actually keep a list of "possible" betta names. However, I don't actually name ALL my fish, mostly just my favs. (I have over 80 now, after all...lol)

Currently over 100 males and females (mostly from Aquabid)....and I have now completely (almost) sworn off Aquabid...lol....waaayyy too addictive!

i like a variety of pop culture names for pets, with a preference for the strange. space ghost is obviously named after space ghost (coast to coast!), same with his surviving amano buddy, zorak. for months i've had it in my head that the next betta i get, i want him to look like a namor (the submariner, from marvel comics), since male bettas tend to be imperious little guys. :p if i ever got a female i'd name her moon unit (frank zappa's daughter's name), because i will literally name anything that's even vaguely female moon unit. if i had ten female bettas they'd all be named moon unit. i wish i was named moon unit.

*faints* 80!?

How many of those are bettas? and how many are males?

Yeah... I can imagine once you get past a couple dozen names may become a little excessive


~~Saki~~~~~~~Sushi~~~~~~~Shisu~~~~~Soren~~~~Splash~~
~Lorelei~~~~~~~???~~~~~~~~~???~~~~~~Yuki~~~~~Naru~~~

Lucifer: From the saying "He's a handsome devil"

Wintergreen: He was green when I got him(is blue now)

Armand: I love "The vampire Chronicles" and he is red like Armand's hair

Ziggy Stardust: Don't ask, I have no idea.

Peacock: His beautiful color looks like a peacock.

Ciel: One of the main characters in Black Butler (manga-anime) who has blue eyes.

Sebastian: The butler of Ciel and he has red eyes

Alois: The antagonist in Black Butler season 2. He has blond hair and loves the color purple

I'm a bit (read that as major) book worm, so whenever I come across a word I like or a particularly cool character name I'll add it to my list. When ever I get a new betta I'll scroll through the list to find one that fits them. The end up have odd names, but I don't think they really mind. Currently I have Vertigo, Kai (from The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher), and Siege from my list. Also, I have Anonymous who got his name when I claimed him from my sister who couldn't even care enough to name the poor guy.

I considered naming my newest boy Canton Delaware, since I got him on the day that the Silence fell! (Seriously, all of a sudden I had a 10g in my room, and tally marks on my arms!)

7 aquariums, 4 terrariums, 6 cats.
Proud to be a PetSmart employee!
