I named Shredder & fax because they were originally supposed to be 'office' fish. Cho is named after the super cool Agent Cho from my favourite tv show, the Mentalist.

My 1st betta was Bluey. I let kids pick names for him and decided on the nicest (guess she picked it because of his long beautiful blue fins). My current betta is Blue2. He has 2 different shades of blue on him.

To be a passionate fish keeper is fine with me, but everything has its limits and thats plain crazy, sorry!
I don't think it's nice to call passionate pet owner's crazy. Or is that to say you are putting down the intelligence and ability to understand of tropical fish? Because their communication skills and ability to be trained and learn from us are greater than you might think. To be honest, it's not the least bit crazy, and is quite possible. What's crazy is to think that they are unable to recognize training of a physical or vocal nature. With patience, you can train him to respond to his name by saying it loudly and clearly only when you are going to feed him/her, and with time you only feed them after they come to the front of the tank after saying this name (or specific word, specific motion, etc). There are some people in this forum who have taught their bettas to jump for their food or do some simple tricks.

Now if you want to call someone crazy for thinking their betta just understood the depth of a 1500s poem that was just read to them, THEN I'll agree with you hehehe

I can't imagine NOT naming my bettas! They have way to much personality to be called no name. My new boy is named Tonka because his grey color made me think of construction and then I thought of Tonka trucks haha.

Same for me! I mean, if I were a professional breeder I wouldn't name any of my fish, I think. But because mine are pets (for now anyway) they definitely need names. That's the difference, I think. Fish are fish to some people and fish are pets/companions even to others. I feel bad I haven't named my new guy!

My fish I named Prince William because I received him on the day after the Royal Wedding, so naturally I named my first girl fish Princess Kate. :)

Michael was named because I LOVED the name Michael when I got him. I was really little and I named him Michael, it was my cat's middle name, even a millipede was Christened Michael. ;)
I think I read too many "For Better Or For Worse" cartoons. :)

Ombre has a black body and then fades to red on his fins. BEAUTIFUL. Once his ick clears up I'll get better pics.
Gel was metallic coloring. Silver body then the fins had a pink/blue hue that reminded me of my Gel pens in high school that color changed. I am now looking for pens like that again. LOL Sadly he died.
I have a baby right now so I don't know it's gender and I don't want to name it till I bond more and maybe know the gender.

When I get my babies I will do the same thing, but It's knida funny to name a fish "Bob" for example, and when it turns out to be a girl it's Bobbie. ;) Know what I mean?
