The Name Game!

Maybe this could be a sticky? I dunno....
Anyways, so in this thread, post the names of your bettas and what they mean to you or what their actual meanings are! Or you can post your favourite betta names or ideas for other fish keepers! I'll start:
Asparagus: Started off as a joke, but then it kind of grew on me. Now it's her name!
P.J.: Just thought it was cute and he was a kind of baby blue so I named him P.J. like pyjamas!
Moseby: Name from a show I like to watch, and the name really fit him!

Now it's your turn!

Akira - The name means intelligent but I named him after the anime character Akira Touya. He's smart and very silly though.

Maka - Named after one of the main characters in Soul Eater and was named that because the name Maka kept showing up in my head whenever I looked at her. After getting nothing from the crowntail next to her I chose her because I knew she was meant to be mine. She's kinda derp though.

Lelouch of the Petsmart Rebellion - Orchid VT

Yugi - German Sheperd/Pitbull mix. The real King of the house.

There are no coincidences in this world...Only the inevitable.....

To the Betta's whom passed on: I'll never stop loving you...Take care of each other under the rainbow bridge....

Drama Queen - She's such a crazy girl. She freaks out over the smallest things. I stick my finger in the tank and she gets all stressed. New plant, stressed. But show her another fish and she FLARESSS. She always wants attention. LOL
Ocean - She's a lovely blue. My mom named her. Just kinda stuck. (She's my avatar)
Spazz - as you can probably guess, he's a spazz. He flares at the silliest things (my jewellery, my pliers) and when I turn music on, he "dances" to it! :D
Skittles - my moms fish. He just seemed like a skittles LOL.
Smiley Unger - my sisters fish. He always looks like he's smiling. ONe of the only bettas I've ever seen that doesn't look grumpy. Unger is a name from my cousin. She goes to a school that is majority made up of students AND teachers with the last name Unger. Its really weird. LOL. So we middlenamed Smiley Unger.
I have a new girl, but she doesn't have a name yet. Waiting for her to color up.


Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.
Dishing out the truth one post at a time

Twitch- Because he was a super spazz in his cup at the store and on the way home, and also because of his color somewhat reminding me of a friend's role play character's hair. (he is my avatar)

Spot- Because when i got him he had breeder bars just like a female. XD And i thought it was funny.

Willy- as in Free Willy... I won this guy from a carnival game that i had to play fifty bajillian times. XD I saved him really, because they were using him as PART of the game. They had him in a cup, and another cup taped on top of his cup was open, then another cup on either side, and you had to bounce a ball into the cups, the side cups won you a goldfish, and the top cup won you a betta... he was the last one. ;^;

♡♡ 2 cats, 3 Bettas, 5 ball pythons, 5 Fancy Rats... and a five year old little girl!! ♡♡
