Baby betta! Need name suggestions :) (pic heavy)

Soooo... I went to Petco for the first time in forever today, since it's farther to drive to than my LFS. I figured I had loads of time to kill today, so I would go to Petco and my LFS. I wanted snails and shrimp. LFS didn't have any shrimp, so I had an extra $2 I had intended to spend... But then I saw this little guy at Petco, and he was only $2 and he was so cute and omg. Impulse buy. No regrets.

I need names. :) No idea what tail type or gender he is. I'm THINKING he's going to be a male, and I'm hoping for Halfmoon or Delta. His body is kind of an iridescent green/blue, and his fins are a little reddish/purple/blue. xD It's hard to tell, since he's still really tiny. He's loving life right now though. He's been inspecting every nook and cranny of his new home. It must feel so big to him. :)

I'd prefer unisex names, so that way it doesn't matter if he turns out to be male or female. :)

Here's a video of him. He's that little hard to see thing that keeps moving. xD

I've been squeeing over him just as much, if not more, than you are. xD Only when I can find him though, because when he hides, he completely disappears. If he's not moving, he's impossible to see!

He's a wiggly little guy. NONE of my fish would suit that name. xD They're all wiggly and happy and rarely stay still. That's why every picture I have of all of them is blurry.

haha, sounds like Tenshi when i first got him, he zips around the tank like i've never seen before. Maybe Flash would fit your new boy.

The third picture shows his colors best. :) His body seems kind of teal-ish, while his fins are blue and red.

I'm hoping he might be a female! But with his colors, he would make a very pretty male HM. :) I still need names for him... Or her.

How about "Tiresias," the transgendered prophet from Ovid's Metamorphoses and T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land?:
"I Tiresias, though blind, throbbing between two lives
Old man with wrinkled female breasts, can see
At the violet hour, the evening hour that strives
Homeward, and brings the sailor home from sea
The typist home at teatime, clears her breakfast, lights
Her stove, and lays out food in tins"
