Naming a betta

I think that the thing most betta owners struggle with is naming their new bundle of joy! Here are the steps I take to name a betta:

1. Actions: Does it blow bubbles? Is it fast? Slow?
Names: Bubble, Speedy, Turtle.
2. Looks: Is it red, white and blue? Pink and purple?
Names: Patriot, Girl.
3. Personalities: Is it shy? Maybe it likes to attack your finger?
Names: Scaredy Cat, Killer.
4. Buying circumstances: Did you get is as a present? Maybe because you were sad?
Names: Gift, Smiles.
5. Buying day. What day did you get it on? What was the weather?
Names: Monday, Sunny.
6. Things that you like: Who is your favorite person?
Names: Steve Jobs.
7. Passed bettas: Did you recently lose a betta?
Names: Sir Fishy the Second.

Maybe this can be a Sticky?

+ It took me a while to find a name.This might become my favorite topic.

I was going to go color wise with my boy: Blu, Azure, Skye, Cobalt, etc.

Then decided to go with a water weatherish theme: Tidal Wave, Riptide, Hurricane, Typhoon.

Or, pick a theme to name all of your future fish. I decided to go with Roman rulers after I named Augustus.

It was very hard to name the first two bettas I had. One passed away before I could even name him. And then after that happened I finally figured out the name for Alpha (he was the Alpha betta.) and this new one I thought of his name right away. My boyfriend said he was spikey, so I named him Spike.

I accidentally started a theme with mine, they are all A's. First was Ampersand, and then Audrey, totally picked at random. Athena was named because she was ill for so long and I thought it suited her. Then I realized what I had done, and went with my A theme when I named Apollo :)
