Smile New Double Tail

So, as some may know, my crowntail betta Laurence died the other day. Yesterday I went out to find another, and caught Petco on the day after they got a new shipment in. The result is a gorgeous multi-colored Double Tail male that I have fallen in love with. He's pretty big, so I think he's fully grown now. I have no name as of yet, so I'm going to ask you all to help me pick one out xD
Here's a couple pics of him. He's not as good of a poser as Sherbet, but I think that may just be because he's in a smaller, 1 Gallon tank right now. Also, the camera has made him out to be more blue that he is. He's actually mostly green.







And because he looks amazing in this picture for some reason...



Alright, here's the possible names I've chosen. Feel free to offer up anything you think will work too (:

Llyr- Means "the sea" in Welsh. {No pronunciation available.}

Nereus- Means "water" in Greek. {NEER-oos (English), NEER-ee-əs (English)}

Phrixos- Means "thrilling, causing shivers" in Greek. {No pronunciation available.}

Castor- Means "to shine, to excel" in Greek. {KAS-tər (English)}

Kreios- Means "lord, master" in Greek. {No pronunciation available.}

Lol. Mostly Greek, I suppose. So, what do you think?

lol! You must have done the same thing that I did and looked up possible names on a website. I like Nereus.
He's very pretty, by the way!!

Yeah xD I go on Behindthename, and looked up Mythology names. It's a great site x3 And I took some pictures of him with flash on, and you can see he's colors ten times more accurately. I'll upload them in a second. He's only got blue on his body, all of the blue on his fins are actually green.

Nicholas... It's a good name, but I'm a little hesitant since I've seen so many "Nick"s on this site. I like having the unique names xD
