Smile New tiny CT boy - name ideas?

After losing my first boy Ramesses yesterday following a long period of illness, I stopped by the pet store where I got him and this adorable little CT boy kept trying to get my attention. They had a new shipment of CT in, but not unpacked and he convinced me to ask them to put him on hold until I could see the others today. He is apparently a copper red, but he looks more silver than anything to me. He was just as persistent today and, while the new ones put on a good showing, I decided that he was the one. He just got into his temporary home until I can get the main divided 5.5 gallon cleaned up and is happily exploring everywhere.

He's rather tiny though, not much more than an inch long, and he is a bit underweight. I have some smaller good quality pellets in addition to the regular ones so I think he'll like them. I've been naming after Egyptian pharoahs so far with Ramesses and Psusennes, but I'm open to suggestions for names. Here are the first pictures of him.

He has some grey coloring in him. How about Ash?

It's more a silver metallic than grey. I like the name, but I kind of associate it with pokemon.

He's gorgeous, he needs a regal name. Ash made me think of The Evil Dead lol. Something or someone associated with silver.

Castor or Pollux could work!

What about Menkaura/Menkaure for a name if you want to stick with your Pharaoh pattern? This fellow is your third betta and he's little. Of the three pyramids in Giza, Menkaura's is the third one and smallest one.

Hmm, that's a possibility. I was looking at his father Khafre and grandfather Khufu as well.

Those two are good too. Whichever name you go with, have fun in choosing. :)

Oh my gosh! he's so adorable and small! I love him, I do like the name Castor but seems your set on your Egyptian Pharaoh theme which is awesome as well :D
