Need help with a name

So I've had this veil tail over a week and I just can't seem to come up with a name for him. A lot of you have very interesting and unique names so I hope I can get some assistance! I'd love something very unique that makes people ask "Where on Earth did you find a name like that?" but in a good way :3







I'm not opposed to mythological names. Quite partial to Norweigian but couldn't find one I liked. Didn't want to use a real popular name though (like Thor or Loki). I am a gamer so references to games are good (my dog is Nanaki :P Bonus internet cookies if you know what that is from!).

I've been playing Bioshock allllllll day, so the first thing that popped into my head was Mr. Bubbles, although that's probably not what you're looking for.

Were you going for something more playful or elegant? For some reason, Wisper popped into my head, not sure why though. I love how there's blue hidden in his tail that pops out when he flares. Maybe a name playing on the idea of "hiding"? Maybe name him after a "trickster" god (not Loki, lol)

What's his personality like?

He seems very energetic. Constantly exploring around his stuff. Friday is when all my silk plants come in, so excited! Whenever I come near he does his "I'm happy to see you now feed me lady!" dance.

That's how my girl, the late and great Rosie, was when I got her.
Sometimes it's the feel of the name you need to get a handle on first.
I'm no good with coming up with names, but maybe just pick a few you like and try calling him a different one every day? Maybe one will stick or he'll respond to one more :)

That might work :3 I'm terrible at names. My goldfish are Mister Fishy Pants, Fluffy and Seaking lol My pleco still doesn't have a name but I'm thinking of naming her after a vacuum lol But I wanted something truly unique or exotic for this guy since he's so pretty. Gosh, my husband is good at picking out fish

I find "Caspian" to be an extremely interesting name. I think thats how you spell it anyway. I have also always liked "D'artanian" And I KNOW that is the correct spelling because that was my horses name before he passed. It is also just pronounced as (Dar-tan-ion). Not sure why it is spelled like that but it is an excellent name.

Hope that helps! :)
