I NEED a name for this new guy! Help!

I hate having an unnamed betta. I will listen to any and all suggestions I would like something Japanese.
I got him yesterday at walmart the flash washed him out a bit, he is black with blue as the pictures show and he does have those red patches.

wow! Nice WM boy!! I'm not familiar with Japanese names, are you into any anime at all? Could name him after a character. Or a place in Japan. Other than that, hit up google translate and type in various items for translation until you find something that sounds nice :) Like, "Storm" or "Rage".

Very into anime most of my fish have been named after characters. I just can't seem to find one that suits him.

Its also a gender neutral name so it can go for both boys and girls. :3 Best of luck with Arashi!
