Lemon ~ He's yellow, lemons are yellow too.
Sakura ~ Because he is a delicate cherry blossom pink.
Namazu ~ The name of a mythical Japanese catfish that causes earthquakes.
Chili ~ He's pretty hotheaded and flares at everything.
Mars ~ Named after the Roman War God. He's always at war with Chili, lol
Rooibos ~ Was drinking rooibos tea, and since he's a red butterfly, thought it was a good name. I call him Roo though.
Mojo ~ It fits him! Originally it was Mojito, then I just shortened it.
Wilder ~ He reminds me of Betta Imbellis with his colours.

Frigga ~ Because she's cute.
Astarte ~ I've always liked the name, and it popped into my head.
The rest of the girls are named after female characters from JRR Tolkien.

Dodo - the bird

Actually, I named him after my cousin's puppy that passed away. My cousin always called the puppy "dodi dodi" which means "come" in our native language. It's hard to say so often so they shortened it to Dodo. Unfortunately, the puppy had some hereditary disease that couldn't be cured and went to puppy heaven.

My betta swims over when we call to him "dodi dodi"... yeah, shortened to Dodo just like the puppy.

The General - he flares and tries to attack everybody who is not me. And by everybody, I mean anybody who walks into the bathroom, the cats, the snail I tried to give him, the cory cats I tried to give him, the sink...

Mouse - he's TINY, and really easily amused by shinys.

Byte - he launches himself at food particles, and lives right next to my computer.

Peaches - well, he's orange. And very, very vain. When I put a mirror in there, he struts, and looks at himself at all angles. So, I figured he would want a name based on his looks.

Rubic - he's ruby colored, and so I made the name more masculine.

Tips - he's very dark colored with a white trim on his tail/fins.

Key - when I got him, he was the color of key lime pie. Now, he's marbled with cream/light blue as well as the green.

Lock - he's the same colors as Key, so I did Lock and Key. hahahahaha... /clears throat

Sunset - he's dark blue, with a lot of orangey-peach colors on him. So, he's clearly the sky with the sunsetting.

Brox - no idea, the name just came to me when I was looking at him.

Smokey the crowntail
Amethyst the veiltail
Thief the halfmoon

Ares: Greek God, was the God of war. Kinda fits him since he is always flaring.

Cuttos: My leopard gecko. I think it means creature in Greek, I kinda like the name.
