Coincidental Name Themes

So I've had two bettas now, Claude and Nero. I actually named Claude after a hockey player and Nero after the emperor. However, it has been brought to my attention that Claudius was the emperor in charge before Nero, and therefore the progression of fish names seems to be following the line of Roman Emperors. I never intended on doing this. :P

Anyone else have a coincidental and accidental name theme going on with their fishes?

Not yet. I can only name a few of my fish. I've named some of my corydoras and my betta. I named my corydoras more after personality and my betta after his red color. Haven't had many aquariums in the past few years, so we'll see if any name progression takes place.

I just named my betta after my grandad, also the fact that "Victor" sounds victorious. =P Otherwise there's no pattern for me either.

Victor, since 26th October 2011.

I like using names from my favourite TV shows, movies, or mythology XD
Sheldon + Penny from big Bang Theory, Belle from beauty and the beast, Odin the Norse god, Hurley from Lost, and we've had a Haldir, Legolas, Gil-Galad, and Morgoth from lord of the rings haha. OH! Also a Padme from star wars :D

Check out my photography page!

If you can tie together Smaug, Kamehameha, and Spooky than I would love to know! Otherwise, nope!

Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
