Talking Need a name!!!

Picture heavy... So, i wanted either a plant for the new 10 gallon tank but walmart was out! So i went to the betta counter, chatted with the fish guy, he has studied fosh for 30 years and all of the tanks were amazingly kept. Yes, this is walmart we are talking about here! Anyway... Two bettas stood out. The first one had a bent dorsal and no matter what i did, it would not unfold. So i decided that it was a birth defect, it is the first picture. Then came this guy! He is a veiltail male at about 2.5" long (tail included). I hope that he will marble up, hes has these colors: pink, blue, purple, red, and clear! Unfortuanitly i could not put him into the 29 gallon tank, Red is in there (see avatar). He could see his reflection all night and fought it. He is scared of people touching his tank, shrinking back at the sight of the dreaded finger. He watches me as i do anything, which is creepy. Here are the pictures that i promised. Tell me what yall think! I need a name. I was thinking of Aquarious. Any sugestions?

The guy with the bent dorsal - common for some (especially VTs) with long dorsal fins to curl in such a way when living in certain water conditions. Can't change it sadly, but it doesn't affect him in any way. I have one like that and he's perfectly fine. Every time I see one I think of Keiko, the orca from the movie Free Willy (who has a bent dorsal due to living in captivity). (Orcas/whales are my favorite animals.. so can't help but to think of Keiko heh)

As for the other guy, that's a great name choice :) and I love his colors!

because of the way he acts, one of my friends has decided to name him Kelso. If you have ever watched the show "That 70's Show", then you would understand. This goes along great with my other boy, who was named Red due to his acting exactly like the character Red from the same tv show. and it seems that i didn't add enough info about the first betta pic. i thought that his defect would spread to any kids that he has, and i intend to breed. so i couldn't get him. the purple one, Kelso, i did get. thank you guys!
