What are your betta's names?

I hope this hasn't been posted. I am new so I am sorry if it has been posted.

What is your Betta's name? How did your Betta get it's name?

Our current Betta we just got is Terence. He is named after Tinkerbells friend on the movie. My daughter loves anything to do with Tinkerbell. lol

My past Betta's were Marley and Ozzy. {RIP}

I have a Veiltail Male named Betta. Real original, right? Lol. I named him that because he was my first Betta in a long time and he was more of a 'test' to make sure I could still care for them.

I have a crowntail female named Foxy. She was my first female so she needed a 'sexy' name.

My green crown tail female is named Emery because it sound like Emerald.

My third crowntail female is Violet because she is white with purple/blue fins.

My crown tail male who is black with orangy fins is called Zorro, because he is all black.

My crowntail blue male is named Sky because he is light blue.

My Crowntail male who is light blue with red fins is named Steel, for his color and because it's the name of a 'manly' villian in a movie i know, and Steel is a very macho betta. lol.

My super delta male who is grey, red then white on the fins is named Smokey, because he looks like a smokey fire.

Mine are in my siggy but I'll explain how I got them.

Fish (the Orange Dalmatian VT) is my oldest Betta (4 years old). He was given to me about a week after my first betta died. I thought he was ugly and I didn't want to name him.. my previous fish was so gorgeous and I just wanted him back! So I just called him "Fish"... eventually he grew on me and is now my most special boy.

Freddie Mercury (red and blue VT).. well he went through several different names before I decided on Freddie and I decided to name him after Freddie Mercury of Queen because my Freddie has a rockstar's temperament LOL

Blue Jeans (Grizzle VT) got his name because he looks like acid was blue jeans.

Damon Salvatore (red butterfly VT) Is named after a Vampire on the show Vampire Diaries. I wanted to do a Vampire name theme (didn't take) and I thought Damon suited this fish's personality.

Demetri Faust (Red and black CT) I had Demetri down as a name I wanted to use for future fish and "Faust" is latin for "fortunate one" I chose this because I decided to bring Demetri home after I promised myself I would never get another petstore betta... but there was something special about him and I couldn't let him end up like other petstore bettas. Demetri is very fortunate :)

Reno, my crowntail male -don't know why I named him that...just liked the name.

Pepper, my double tail male - short version of peppermint because he is red and white and reminded me of a peppermint candy.

The girls are Ting, Ling Ling, Tao Tao and Ping (who jumped ship...RIP Ping) - the names just kind of came to me. I wanted some Chinese sounding names.

And last, R.I.P. Sky, a delta tail male - named so because his body was blue and his fins were yellow and he reminded me of the sky and the sun.

OK, lets see if I can remember them all. LOL

Jello Bites... My sister named him. :D haha!

Sammy Marshwiggle I LOVE the whole Narnia series by CS. lewis so the marshwiggle part is from that, and sammy just fit him.

Pax. Means peace. Funny I named a tail biter that... LOL

VarroWolf Varro means strong and he IS! He is from walmart. had lots of problems when I got him. My friend said he looked like a Wolf, so that is where that came from.

Clypso just fit him. :)

Ivy means small. Fit her too.

Angel Well... she's white. LOL

Oliver. Another name that just popped into my head and stuck.

Gustav: I promised myself that If I ever got a DBT I'd name it Gustav. Not sure why...

Pansy: She has the colors of a pansy!!!

Prince Rilian: (I got him a day after I got Pansy LOL) He looks like a Prince!

Mikko: After I'd had him for TWO weeks I told my brother to name him so I could stop calling him "My new halfmoon" He named him after the world fittest man. LOL!!!!!!!

Ooo, these threads are always fun :) I love seeing the reasons behind the names people pick for their finned friends! <3

Lets see...they're on my siggy of course, but I'll give a brief rundown

Ed, Al, Winry, and Hayate are from the anime/manga(Japanese cartoon/graphic novel) Fullmetal Alchemist.
Jirou and Mimiko are from the anime/manga Black Blood Brothers.
Itachi is from the anime/manga Naruto.

Wally is named after Kid Flash, a D.C. Comic character. I originally got it from one of my fav cartoons, Teen Titans, though.

Think I'm a geek yet?

Supernova and Phoenix were both random names that popped into my head upon getting them.

Nami is named after a character one of my good friends created.

And though they aren't listed(because there isn't room....I need to mess with my siggy a bit ) I also have...
Zeus(who is my moms), Hera, Apollo, Artemis, Aphrodite, and Athena. They are all from my current spawn(as is Itachi, actually). This is a funny story actually, after having a random conversation about Greek gods after my friend(same one that named Nami)went to see Percy Jackson & the Olympians, I just kind of starting calling one of my fav girls Athena.....and it stuck...and branched off from there to Aphrodite, Apollo, and so on

...And I think thats about it for my current bettas xD

I had a few. My very first betta was named Bubbles and he lived to be like... 3? I think. And my second betta was Ruby. He lasted a couple years. my third one I wasn't lucky with... (this was some years ago) and he lasted a few months... Didn't ever come up with a good enough name either.
