New betta remains unnamed

Hello all,

I am new to betta keeping and the forum. I recently got a new betta from my local aquarium supply store. I picked him because he was so different from any other betta I've seen before. However, I've been having the worst time trying to come up with a name that fits him. Would anyone be willing to help me out with some suggestions?

Oh yes Sunfire is a awesome name. Or how about Starlight, Or Commet, Phoenix, or Flame? He sure is a great looking Betta :)

Sand-dune is what I thought of because of the sunsets I've seen over them. His coloring is kind of like that. -shrug-

Or, Nashville. I'm not a country girl myself, but the colors kind of remind me of that area. I dunno. Ha.

I like Sunfire, too! Or maybe simply Sunny. He's a gorgeous color!

Or after a bright spice, like chili or cumin or saffron.

thanks for all the great suggestions! I think I've settled on Phoenix as his name as was suggested by Kitty Whiskers. I think he came home with some minor fin rot which got a little worse since that picture as I didn't realize that's what was going on and so he looks a bit "singed" on the edges as if he had been on fire. It made me think of when Harry Potter first meets Fawkes the Phoenix and he's all bedraggled looking since he is "due for a burning day"..... so therefore Phoenix seemed to finally fit him. Thank you all again!
