blah i still have trouble with my bettas name!

first i had named him Ren..jus cuz i heard it from a song n had it stuck in my head all day long the day i got him. my mom didnt like the name so decided to name him sharky.

now i think the name sharky fits him more cuz hes a fiesty lil thing! when i feed him he attacks his food like i havent fed him in weeks! u'd think i starve him. i didnt want the name sharky at first cuz when i think of sharks i think of them in a blue color and my betta is red sooo....yeah lol but its sticking.

DQ, how did you come up with the name Yerakina? That one is certainly unique :)

I had a blue betta, my first one, and I named him Boy Blue, after a song by the group Electric Light Orchestra. Since I live in Kentucky,I didn't want people to think I named my fish after the University of Kentucky Wildcats. They call them Big Blue. So I didn't really like calling him Blue for short. lol

I grew up in the 60's and my parents had this record by this folk group called The Limeliters. I have always loved the music and I now have it on a cd. There was a song on there that I always loved called Yerakina, about a girl who went to the spring to fill up her water jug. So when I got my first female betta, I named her after the song that I loved so much. :)

Oh that's very interesting Drama. I can't say my babies have unique names lol. I think the best name is Merlin. But that was my boyfriends idea. Everyone else has simply names.

I named mine Nibbler, cuz he's a little pig. He eats everything he can, and tries to eat the fake plants. Once he tried to eat my fingure when I was cleaning the tank >:( :p I was going to name him Chompy, but my friends said that Nibbler was a better name.
