Lol xD yeah, I'm a Japanophile/anime fan so it's kinda hard to not name them something Japanese =v=;

I kinda feel so uncreative compared to the lot of you xD

I named mine Noel because my friend got him for me for Christmas '07. She felt bad cause my other betta died while I was on vacation, and she was watching it. He was also white, red, and green at the time, so the name matched. Now hes maroon, purple, red, and teal. He completely changed colors when he moved to his 10g.

I wanted a name that was actually a name and have it be epic sounding x3

I came up with lot of names for him though, but that one stuck best.

Aha, a fun thread I've found, here! :D

Tian-Tian came about because I wanted something really special... "tian" in Mandarin Chinese can mean a variety of things, depending on the tone. I settled on "divine" or "heavenly" and thought it'd be cool if I doubled up "tian"....
...
I later found out that "Tian-Tian" means "everyday".
That's the last time I consult a foreign language I don't know, lol.

As for Taco... I was hungry at the time, you see... and I meant it as just a temporary name until I could think of something cooler.
... the name stuck.

And thus I have Tian-Tian and Taco. :D

For my birthday (august 22 2008 ) My Nana got me 2 bettas.
I named them after my favorite movie, Finding Nemo. So i named the red one Nemo, and the blue purple red and green on Squirt. Nemo died a few months later after a terrible accident with my stupid cat. So later this year i got Leo, Cosmo, and Gurgle. I came up with Leo... unknown... haha, I just love that name <3. Cosmo because he has brightish colors and idk, i just look on a website called Boogiepets.com and i liked the name cosmo, and it suits him well. And once i got Gurgle, i got his name from finding nemo also, My favorite charactor. The purple and yellow fish in the fish tank that is like a clean freak. The name isnt much like Gurgle. But i thought it was cute so i kept it. :) My names aren't all fancy like most of you guys, ;)

Being true nerds, my boyfriend and I tossed around a number of names for our little guy. We finally settled on Zaphod. He's named for the character Zaphod Beeblebrox (from The sci-fi classic: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), president of the universe, inventor of the best drink in existence, and a number of other impressive things.

We thought he was awesome enough to live up to the expectations that come with such a name.

i named mine pheonix after i looked for color names on a baby name website. pheonix was one of the only red ones that was pronouncable, but i also really liked it lol. not that interesting way but before that i was looking at nearly everything! for cultural names i mean. i almost named him tomo because that means first in greek, or the 'first one' to be exact lol.
