How did your bettas get their names?

Just another getting-to-know-you post.

Jazz - Started as Leander but that was an impulse name, He started dancing to a jazz song so i renamed him Jazz!

Friday - Evander, another impulse name. But them I realized the day before I got him it was Friday the 13th, and he was a spooky looking fish!

I wanted to name my guy Tangerine but my husband said, too girly. Then I said, well something with a T for Tangerine, cause he's orangey and he said, Tango, from the Nato Phonetic Alphabet. He and his friends used their initials to make names out of that. He was Sierra Romeo Alpha and I was Juliet Delta Foxtrot! 8)

Hooo boy....

Deimos- means "terror". It's literal :P He's a terror to feed.

Ace- Named after one of my favorite anime characters ;3

Sherbet- He's orange xD

Skittles- He's multicolored, like skittles, lol

Vulcan- The name of the Roman God of Fire. I thought it fit ;3

Devin- It means "little black one", or something to that affect. Literal.

Shani- means "red". lol. She's cambodian, so it fits her pretty well.

Bliss- Short for blizzard, since he's white :3

Tai- it means "strong", though he's my biggest baby.

Max- ... Well, disturbing as it is, he's named after one of my old dogs. He's got the same coloring, but what cinched it was he tried to eat his own poop, which was what my dog did :3

most of my names are all Random things I thought of... :D

Jello Bites... Well... my sister named him when we were standing at the walmart check out. LOL I burst out laughing and everyone was looking at me like I was nuts.

Sammy marshwiggle, Hahah! I was sick in bed and I was like, I'm gonna name my next fish Sammy marshwiggle! I'm a big C.S lewis fan. :P

Pax... well, I named him Rover at first, but it didn't fit! Then, my mom suggested Pax. As in Peace.

Rune, I thought of that name ahead of getting a fish! It means mysterious. Oh gosh, I just forgot that Rune is gone...

VarroWolf. One of my friends said he looked like a Wolf! Varro means strong.. He IS a fighter! A walmart rescue. He deserved a name like that!

Clypso. Just something I thought of.... LOL

Ivy. I was looking on for a name for her. I think it means small.

Angel. Well, she's white. LOL

Oliver. Just something that fit him!

Well, I had more Bettas that I adopted out, so this will be easier with just one. :P

I named him Castiel because I'm a diehard Supernatural fan. Plus, Castiel is an angel (the actual angel we believe they are referring to is Casiel). He is light blue and white and just looks the part. :D

I usually just look at mine and a name pops into my head, but sometimes if I'm really stumped, I'll go online and look up fish names.

Cinder is the name of my main character of my Betta-based webcomic that I've been working on. (I haven't made any updates lately because I want to go back and re-do the current pages I have, starting in January. That way I can have a fresh start and *try* to keep constant updates going.)

Feel like taking a look? Click here: http://queen-of-randomness.deviantar...over-121701355

Just follow the links to the next page in the artist's description.

.... and yes, I've been keeping this a secret from y'all. Sorry. :D

Midas-He's golden colored...King Midas
Rhett-He's a great red color, but the name "Red" is too obvious, and I'm a fan of Gone With The Wind
Mugsy-One of the first pictures I took of him, was a close up of his goofy mug
Dexter-Named after the show Dexter, love it!

Lady, Gaga, Razzi, and Roma- I'm a huge Lady Gaga fan. Razzi from Paparazzi, and Roma from Bad Romance
Violet-She has a cute lil purplish tail
Alice-She's cute and petite, like Alice from Twilight(and yes I like Twilight, get over it!)
