Thumbs up Help me pick my new betta!

Sooooooooo... i plan on ordering a betta from Chard56! I told him what kinds i wanted, and he showed me 7 pics of REALLY pretty fish, and i managed to narrow it down. I had a tough time, i had to choose between two (beautiful)dalmations, but i got it down to three. two of them are butterflies, ( and tell me if i'm wrong here:) i think they're either deltas or super deltas (all 3 are the same tail type) I am leaning on the second butterfly, but i want you guys to help me pick! I am sure they are quality, (i know that much, I think) but i don't know alot of things about picking a betta.
so, tell me what you think! Okay? (am i missing something?) Oh, and if you want, you can include what you think the betta you like the most's name should be!

The second one for sure! You should give him a REALLY cool catchy name. Well this is like the most boring name but he really looks like a Derek or Tom.
