Help name a rescue boy

Long story short, I found a pet store that had three male bettas in one tank. I bought 2, one of which didn't make it over night so I went and got the third one. Before my mom heard their story she saw the boy pictured here and fell in love with him. You could see it in her eyes. She's been wanting a second betta, so this boy is now hers. He is the least beat up of the three and he spent his time hiding in the rocks and plants while the other two fought it out. My mom's other betta is named Ming and she would kind of like a name that goes well with Ming. So far she is thinking of Saki to go with Ming or Rocky to go with is story. Any suggestions of names, especially those that would go well with Ming, are appreciated.

Wow, what kind of pet store puts bettas in the same tank together and isn't smart enough to separate them when they realize they are aggressive fish...makes no moral or financial sense to me but whatever. I'm not good with asian-themed names but he is a beautiful fish. I'd name his after the Japanese word for fire...whatever that is =p

It was supposedly an accident with three connected tanks. The employee responsible put each betta into it's own tank and they flowed into the last one with cycling. Once they reached the third tank there was no place else for them to go. There's a chance I was the first to notice it, but the employee that got the bettas out didn't seem surprised. Yet, when I went and got the third the next day that employee had no idea even 1 betta was in their plant tanks.

Great idea about the name though. I will suggest both Kasai & Huo (Japanese & Chinese words for fire) to mom and see what she thinks.

Seeing as Ming was a Chinese dynasty, perhaps go with another Chinese Emperor name?

Khan (not technically Chinese but still a great ruler of the area)
