Betta names.

I noticed that a lot of you have very interesting and different names for your bettas and I was curious as to how you came up with them?

Castiel, Anna, and Azazel all came from my favorite show Supernatural. Since Castiel is an angel on the show I wanted his sister to have an angel name too. I looked up angel names and I found Gabriel.
Spike is just a name a friend helped us come up with and he picked it because he's a crowntail (get it? :P)
Scarlett because she is red, so that's self explanatory.
And finally, Antubis is from the miniseries "Kingdom Hospital"

I only have one little guy and his name is Scarlet Pimpernell.
Like AngelicScars I named him for his red colouring, but also I love theatre and drama and I borrowed his name from the play:
'The Scarlet Pimpernell'.
Where did you get yours from?

Comso was named so because he was a purpleish red color kind of like a cosmopolitan drink I love the beach and sailing and have lots of family in florida so Captain and Kokomo are named accordingly.

Here are my Guys:

Jello Bites Rock Moon. Ummm Hehehe what can I say! My sister named him! LOL

Sammy Marshwiggle. The marshwiggle part comes from the book The Silver Chair by C.S. lewis.

Pax Rover. I named him Rover First, but it didn't seem to fit very well. So, I named him Pax (as in Peace) Rover.

Rune. Rune means something mysteries or something like that. Rune is anything from that, he is more like a clown!

VarroWolf. A friend suggested that I name him Wolfie because he is a gray color. Varro means strong.

Um... xD; My names are... interesting.

Shota... well, I was asking my friends what they thought of him, and they called him a girly fish because of his colours, and he was a bit of a wussy and would run and hide if you stuck your face too close to his tank or something... so they dubbed him Shota, which is the Japanese term for um... little boy pron LOL. YEAHHHH and then it kinda stuck because I couldn't think of anything better xD;; But yeah, it's not terribly bad because there is a real Japanese name for boys "Shouta" meaning "soaring", so it's close enough.

Nya and Kyu are just named off of cute Japanese sounds, yeah... I couldn't think of anything better. Kyu being a sound I relate to being like a sigh, gentle and calm while Nya being a more curious playful sound. I think it suits them xD

Well, Merlot is named after the wine Merlot because his fins are the color of red wine. Jaden was named because I like the name and couldn't think of anything else that suited him, Blue Bonnet is pretty self explanatory because she's blue, Rusty because he is a rusty red color and Yerakina was named after a song by an old folk group from the 60's.

I named Flair because I couldn't decide what to name him. I've always been so bad with naming anything (don't know what I will do if I ever have children haha). But all he ever did was Flair at anything and everything the first two days I had him. And he seemed to respond to it lol.

Very cool names, when i get mine, i'm just gonna look up naming sites and different cultures. I was looking at thai names, because bettas originate from thiland lol.
