It's fun to see how many different ways people choose names for their fish! :)
For some reason the idea of just picking names feels like I have to try hard and I don't like to change names after I choose them.

all my current pets names start with 's'. sandie (dog), sara (cat), & sam (betta). i think i'll keep continuing this theme until i run out of s names...then i'll have to find a new theme, haha.

personally, i love racing horse names, so i might have to do that next ;D

Well currently I have Adamu and Polaris. Adamu is an African name, and I LOVE African names, they're just so awesome. Polaris is a star, which I thought sounded really interesting and described his colors and personality. Maybe the next Betta will have an African name, and then the one after that, a Star name. I already have TONS picked out.

They'll come in handy when I start my first Sorority in December ;)

Naming is one of the most fun things :)
I like everyone's story behind names !
Does anyone change their betta's name on a whim? lol Because the original just didn't fit?
I did this with my cats too.
Good thing they don't have birth certificates!

No theme here, but the reasoning behind a few...

Danny Boy - Bc he was GREEN like Ireland, then changed to Indigo.
He's a friendly guy & likes when we have parties at the house. lol

Mr. Brooks - Super aggressive crowntail, named by my roommate after a horror movie.

Dexter - Red VT, named by me and roommate after the show with lots of blood.

Lt Shiny Sides - Silly name courtesy of my silly friend. Plus he's silver.

Chalupa - multicolored like a mexican pinata.

I don't really have naming themes. My fish are just whatever I think of. Actually, I only named 2 out of my 5 betta. My friend and boyfriend do that for me :p

My snails however, do have naming themes. When I first got a golden mystery snail, I felt like it needed a really fancy male name. I decided on Reginald. Now I have him, Cornelius, and Worstershire (technically a sauce, but sounds close enough) Idk why, but they sound so fitting. haha
