New Dragon HM Rose Tail Male Needs a Name

The only thing I'm allowed in my dorm is fish tanks 10 gal or less-- so I decided to get back into keeping a betta. He's gorgeous, only a little younger than 4 months old, and he's got so much spirit he really is a dragon, not just in scale markings. He seems to love his new set up, a nice little 2.8 gallon decked out in all new decorations. He's eaten, I adjusted the flow of the filter, and he's been swimming around like crazy-- so curious. I just need a name for him now! Any ideas?

I really hope he grows into his anal fin, since it's so long, but I think that's just because of his age. I'm not sure about his coloring either... Any advice?

He's gorgeous.

About the anal fin, I wouldn't hold out too much hope of him growing into it. My Rose tail has the same thing, his anal fin is huge. Since I've had him that's only grown along with the rest of his fins.

Oh darn, well, I think he's quite pretty nonetheless, and at least his tail fin should get bigger :P it kinda makes him look like an Asian dragon anyways. Thanks for letting me know

He's adorable! you could go the mythological dragon route :P

Ouroboros is a favorite, but that might not be a great name since bettas have a habit of tail-biting...:P

Naga or Wyvern could also be cool.

I'm torn between Smaug(The Hobbit), or Gorbash(The Flight of Dragons), or Shruikan(Eragon)... Eep!

I'm a fan of the name Alduin (Skyrim), but I also like Smaug!

AAAAHHH that's a great one!! Didn't even think of Skyrim! Alduin is great, and I also have to say I like Smaug the most out of the ones you're considering :)

Brynjolf and Vilkas too.... may they SIP... Skyrim has great names.

Now I'm tempted to name my new guy Scouts-Many-Marshes, haha.
