Naming themes!

Does anyone else do this?

I name my fish using themes, if you know what I mean.
All of my bettas are named after world leaders / royalty. All of my Mollies are named after small islands (along with my sucker fish), and as I expand to guppies potentially over the next year, I'll have to come up with another naming theme for them, something equally as fun.

If you have a naming theme, what is it?

Bettas: Aung San Suu Kyi

Platys: Nicki Minaj & Boo-Boo

I don't have themes, but mainly because I worked at an adoption center for many years and all my themes have been used on litters of kittens/puppies. so I think of a certain cat/dog if I do.

Sometimes goodbye is a second chance <3

I just look at a betta and see if they remind me of something or if I think of something random that fits them, that is what they are named.

Bettas are like potato chips, you can never have just one.

Me too. That's how I ended up with the completely random names in my signature...

I only have one betta, Victor, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with old man names with my future bettas XD

I love old fashioned names, they have so much character!

I have no themes... well, before I was gonna do a planet/ space theme like my friend, but after Venus died and I was gonna get a new betta I realized she'd used up pretty much every other name... Now I have a food theme I guess? Starting with Churro... and I only like to have one betta at a time anyways...


Thanks to Amaya Yu for the great drawing in my avatar!
Churro, Orange VT Male

Jade, Black Female Kitty

Most of mine are letters out of the Nato phonetic alphabet based on color or type.

Huey, cause he looks like a lil helicopter when he's 'hovering', Wraith cause he was like a ghost of himself when I brought him home.

All of my Endler's have names based on coloring or patterning cause they're so hard to tell apart. There's BD, Tiger, Speck, Lemon, J, Dash, Dali, and Opal. My corys are too hard to tell apart for permanent names. I call them 'Buddies'. :D

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango
