My favorite boy :)

Okay I realize that I kind of already posted this in care, but it has come to my attention that that may not have been the appropriate place to put this... my bad guys, sorry, if I mod comes around, feel fee to delete that other topic if you like lol

Anyway... I was hoping I could get some name suggestions from you guys, my fiance and I are completely stumped at what to call him. Had him for about 2 weeks now. The pictures don't quite do him justice, he's only about an inch and a half to 2 inches from tip to tail and when stimulated his body is nearly black, he has red fins with blue (accents?) and they're rimmed with black

Personality wise he's OCD (if any food falls to the floor of the tank he searches for it like mad until he finds it)... and extremely active and fast for a large finned betta. He's also extremely intelligent and learned to come for food when I whistle within the first day I had him lol. Also, he's very passive and doesn't really care about other males or even mirrors, I've only seen him flare twice, and it was kinda tiny because he's so small hehe

Names we've tried:
Dart, Feather, Cassinova, MacBeth, Hamlet, Tatsu, Bullet currently we call him a combo of little guy, little dude, small one, little one and similar things

Ohh I like both of those... hmmm...

Nova, because I've always liked the character of Casanova
Cupid, because he is kind of heart shaped with that tail of his xD

since he's a DT, maybe "Doppel" (german for "double")

or "Croi" (Irish Gaelic for "heart" after his heart-shaped tails)
