Help with names?

So, I have a an addiction that I cannot stop. Lol I always read, "once you get one you'll never stop." I thought, psh yeah right...but I was wrong. Everytime I go to the store and see the Bettas I just wish I could have them all. I wish they could live together, I'd own tons if that were possible.

Anyways, I just bought two the other night and I cannot think of any proper names for them.

I do not have my camera handy at the moment for pictures of them, but I found pictures as close as possible to what they look like.

They both had fin rot and the red one had it something horrible. I've been giving them salt baths and giving them special care, and they seem to be more happy and healthy. :)


The first one looks a lot like this, but with some black speckles amongst his body and fins. He hid for the first day I had him, under a log. He would peek out if I went near the tank, but now he dominates his tank. :)


this is the closest thing i could find to my fish...but this is not as cute as mine, IMO. >_< I mean this one is a beautiful fish don't get me wrong, but mine is gorgeous. Mine has a black body, with dark red fins, almost the color of blood, with little teal stripes like the one above, but less blue. He had fin rot something horrible, poor little guy. He was shy at first, but after a salt bath he seemed to lighten up and appeared to be more happy.

All names are appreciated, as I need some cute, original ideas. I can't think of anything that great.

Freckles is the name of my dalmation molly or I'd name it that. Thank you for the thought though. :)

is your second one anything like the one in my avatar (my CT, gipper)? Hi fins were really dark red (almost hard to tell they were red) until he relaxed and now they are a blood red.

yes, kuklachica he looks pretty much just like that, except not a CT. Beautiful. His body doesn't have the greenish color though.

I love seeing what other people think of for names. I just think it's interesting because we all have a different method of why we pick certain names. :) Thanks everyone. I'm liking them so far, but I'm wanting something that just pops at me. Snowflake for the first one is cute, but he's almost too pink for that.
