Ranger - Named after Lone Ranger commercial that I saw right before leaving for PetSmart.

Marius - Suggested by a member here to match Eponine

Eponine - Named after character from Les Mis. She is feisty like Eponine so that's how she got her name.

Neptune - I like Roman and Greek mythology, so i went with one that made sense

Gerard - Named after Gerard Butler, I went from seeing Phantom of the Opera (my other favorite musical next to Les Mis.. although I prefer the stage version of both) to PetCo because the movie theater was close, saw him and took him home. This was in 2004 or 2005.

Bob - Named by a co-worker who said all fish need to be named Bob. This was 2004 as well.

Cow - I wanted oddest name I could think of. This was 2002-2003.

So, it looks like I mostly turn to popular culture and/or other people.

A bit off topic but I can't help it... I got so excited when I saw the name Eponine pop up, and then Marius. I love Les Miserables, my favorite musical hands down.

So, those names? Win! <3

I currently have 2 bettas, my mom named one Shuckey, because she heard the name on a show and liked it. My other betta that I just got os named Selene, Greek goddess of the moon.
Shuckey is blue and red.
Selene has white fins and a charcoal colored body.

All over the place

I wanted something pedigree sounding for the first betta I've had in years... so I thought and thought...

and decided to go with some Japanese (Murasaki no Ryuu = purple dragon... saki just to not have to say it all every time, hahaha)

My husband named his next fish sushi because he's a jokster and thought "saki and sushi" sounded yummy Shisu just to play on "sushi" since he took his tank when he passed away.

Soren for one of my favorite movies, and his tank mates got named to match....

and Slash from guns'n'roses because my husband didn't like anything else.

So LITERALLY all over the place, lol

I generally have three places I pick from: Artist whom I like, Astrological things, and Marvel Mutants (yeah I'm a nerd)

The first three were not from the above list.
Gallifrey - a red CT named after the Doctors home planet from Doctor Who
Scorch - a red VT because....well I accidentally burned Gallifrey because I was very unknowing at that point.
Stony - red/white/blue double tail whom we considered calling Chop Suey (my dad accidentally turned the filter on not realizing Scorch's filter didn't have the basket thing on so it sucked him up....)

And then the rest are pretty much from my first list:
Rembrandt (Remmy) - artist
Mattise (Maddie) - artist
Aurora - astro.
Stardust - astro.
Phoenix - Marvel
Mystique - Marvel
Raven - Marvel

Others that don't fit:
Ditto (he looks almost exactly like Remmy but a double tail, hence Ditto)
Little Blue (because she's little and she's blue)
Cherry (thought she was sweet like cherry pie)
