Name for My New Main Man.... Help!?! for

Hello,
My beloved betta, Firebolt -died recently but my heart still had room for a new betta for me to love. I went to a local aquarium and picked out this little guy below (he was the only one flaring in his container) haha. There were a lot of gorgeous bettas there so I might be going back to pick up another.

But I'm here today because I'm having a awful lot of trouble naming him. I thought of: Cobalt, Poseidon, Twilight, Merlin, Neptune but I'm not sure which one is best. He's pretty fiesty and he has gorgeous coloring (i think so anyway) his pictures are below both sides of him, flaring and not flaring. I am open to suggestions, please help me think of a name please?!?!








Bettas:

Firebolt : crimson/ fire engine red. - deceased
TBD: cobalt blue with splashes of red

Go there, go to the drop down arrow in the upper right, and click on meanings. From there you can write in "water" or "dogs" or "sky" or even "fish", and it'll tell you a list of names that have something to do with that subject. Otherwise you can just look through all of the names in anyway you want. I like the name Enki myself, which means "lord of the earth". It was also the God of Water and Wisdom in Sumerian mythology.

It's a wonderful site for naming, either for pets or children xD I love it, and use it for everything. Not that I have children, or anything xD
