Where do you get your name inspirations?

I always love hearing the stories of people naming their fish, so ramble on.

Mine are:
Drew is a natural alpha and likes to be paid attention to. I named her after a charcher in Rick Riordan's The Lost Hero (a daughter of Aphrodite)
Luna is a night-dweller and is quiet but really weird. She hides in weird nooks and even disappears sometimes. I named her after Luna Lovegood.

I'm planning on getting some new girls tomorrow and might use Aela (The Huntress from Skyrim), Clove (from Hunger Games), and Azura (Skyrim) as names if the girls fit the names.

Story time.
i brought home my crowntail and put him in my ten gallon tank and he was like " Wow" and he swam around the tank flaring randomly it was very funny and he was challenging the filter to the fight and I made the comment that he was a "Spazz" and the name stuck.

My bettas almost always get named the first thing that comes to my mind, which accounts for some of the weird and wacky names they've had in the past. Thought right now almost all of my bettas are named after characters from supernatural!

I name mine after Basketball Players. Oh, so if some of you guys name them after Mythology Gods, I can't name mine from my Favorite Sport? That's Cold.
Hehhehe... Jk.But seriously.
Lebron is my Avatar Picture. He's red. Which reminds me of Miami. Heat.
He has a white face. For some reason. And Lebron James had a white headband before.

I name my bettas after there personality, color, finnagge, appearance. My gunmetal halfmoon male's name is shadow because of his colors. My other fish's name is show off because of how much he flared when I first got him

Kyon is a character from Haruhi Suzumiya which is one of my favourite anime series.

The Bronze cories have traditional cat names.

The one thing I have a big interest in apart from fish keeping is movies and usually asian horror or cult horror. I also love anime so names of choice reflect this.

I like the name Dae-su for my next. He was the main charecter from my favourite Korean movie, Oldboy or Kiriyama from Battle Royale or Spaulding from House of 1000 corpses.

My cats are called Topcat and Benny The Ball from the cartoon Topcat :)

All of these are soo cool. I think it's really neat when you can find a fitting theme (like the Berrys) or just name them on what they do and act like. When I get my new girls today, they're probably going to be named mostly after video games or books and movies.
