I must admit I didn't search very far to find a similar thread, so apologies if this is terribly overdone.
Where did you get the inspiration for the names of your betta(s)?
Mine are from some of my favourite films and books:
The luck dragon from The Neverending Story
. When I first saw him, the first thing to pop into my mind was "Oh wow, he's definitely a Falkor!" and I affectionately think of him as my very own luck dragon.
The warrior elf from Ralph Bakshi's Wizards
. Even when he was ill when he first came into our care, we could see he had an awful lot of attitude, perhaps even "little man syndrome" for fishies, hehe. Naming him after the excitable elf seemed fitting.
Feyd-Rautha, nephew of the Baron Harkonnen from Dune
. Even when under less-than-ideal circumstances, Feyd seemed like he could take anything on and had an air of being cool, calm, etc. When prompted to flare, he's even excessively calm doing that, as if to say "My fighting abilities are superior to anyone's, I got this". So the name was chosen.
I'm very interested to hear where everyone else got their inspiration, but feel free to shut this thing down if it's been overdone, mods.
