Funny enough... I had chosen this name BEFORE I ever got my Betta.
When my husband agreed to let me adopt another Betta, we were watching Legend of the Guardians and I exclaimed "omg, I want to name a Betta "Soren"!"
I was set on that name, but when I decided on a Betta, he was bright green. So a green Betta named after a beige and white barn owl? I thought... that seems odd, so let's find another name.
Let's not... after thinking and thinking, I still like Soren best. After all, my nickname growing up from my friends was "owl" because they're my favorite animals, and the chief of my friends tribed dubbed me "swift wing". On top of the, Legend of the Guardians is one of my favorite movies alongside a few Miyazaki films.
So what do you think? Is Soren a good name even though the namesake is on the other side of the color spectrum?
