Smile Naming Your Betta

Hi all,

When I get my betta, I'm hoping to name him a Thai name to heed his origins. Any suggestions that mean something (I was thinking 'fire', or 'sun') would be helpful.

But since it would be selfish to open a forum like this and use it for my benefit only, I want everyone to post their favourite betta names here and hopefully people can come to get ideas for their new fish.

My ideas:
-Naming your betta in another language, like I am, can sound really cool and mean something to you.

-When I was little I adored giving my fish goofy names like Google, Frank, and Alf. Naming a fish like this will make you smile when you think about it!

Hopefully this will help people, so come on, I want to hear your great ideas!

Tawan-Thai word for sun
Fai-Thai word for fire

I had a female betta named Ju Ichi, pronounced "jew each". It's Japanese for 11, as she was the eleventh I had bought while in Japan (after 10 community fish).

We have a comic book theme going on here. My significant other's Betta is named Hellboy. My first Betta was named Abe (for Abe Sapien); he died, and I named my next one Kroenen.

My latest, his name is Ozymandias.

My very first betta was called Patrick. My brother and I gave names like Patrick, Jeeves, Rupert to our fish.

My latest two were named after Supernatural (Dean and Sammy, the original Sam died)

I plan on naming the two girls Lilith and Ruby (or Meg, I'm not sure)

Ohhh another Supernatural fan!

I have a boy named Castiel. I also had Anna, Azazel, and Lilith but they died.

I don't think I could name any of my Betta after the Winchester boys though.

I've recently been reading comic books like mad, and bought a blue fish just so I could name him after the most badass character I could find - Thor. Well, he was badass until he got together with Valkyrie in The Ultimates 3. >_>; Now my fish is much more badass than the comic book character.
