Help me name him!

Hey guys, an ebay seller I've bought from before gave me a nice deal on four of his bettas. This one I'm having trouble naming. His colors remind me of a peacock! I looked up names that had to do with peacocks and pride. The first I found was Pavlin, which is Russian for "beautiful peacock" and Dallin, which is an old English name meaning "pride of the people." I'm not really sold on either name. My other idea was to name him after a place. I thought of maybe calling him Santiago, after one of the islands I visited in the Galapagos, or Tuscany, for Italy. But I still don't feel like the names fit. Perhaps I'll go Greek and do something like Poseidon, for his blue colors, or Zeus. I am a big fan of the ocean, so Any oceanic names would be good. Maybe Triton? From the little mermaid? Throw some suggestions at me! I love literary, musical or geographical names.

Ooh Neptune is nice! Mick/Micky is the name of someone I don't like! Not a bad name, just a personal preference :P
