Meanings of your bettas' names?

I am just curious. I just recently looked some of my bettas names up, actually. Here are their meanings-

Males-
Spiridion- Spirit
Nereus- Wet one
Norm- Northerner
Fehmi- Love

Females-
Tallulah-Faye- Leaping water, Loyalty
Hattie- Lord of the manor

Well I've told you guys before why they have their Nato Phoenetic Alphabet names but I'll rehash it. :D Since they're not conventional names, they don't really have meanings beyond the obvious.

Tango - I wanted to name him Tangerine and my husband insisted it was too girly. I tried Peaches. Too girly. So he came up with Tango from the ICAO alphabet. And then the naming convention stuck for the others.

Whiskey - He's white, so we went with W from the alphabet.

Kilo - is a king betta so we used K. Plus, he's a big dude, so Kilo was a good choice.

I'll add Nugget in there even though he's not a betta. When we got him he was this tiny, tiny little nugget of a fish. He was like a 1/2 inch or less. So hubby named him Nugget. But one day we were watching him and I was showing him how fast his little fins move and how he could turn and pivot so effortlessly and Steve said, He looks like a little Huey helicopter. So we agreed to change his name to Huey!

Some of my betta's names don't have meaning, just cute names like Fish, Mr. Pink, Freddie Mercury, Blue Jeans, etc.

Demetri Faust.. Faust means fortunate one. Demetri is just a name I liked.
Eros.. same as CR
Neptune.. God of water
Rio.. spanish for river
Ada.. prosperous, joyful and happy (which I hope her spawn will be), it also means noble
Alexander.. means warrior.. I thought it was fitting for a dragon

Here are my betta's name meanings....

Winston - "Joy Stone" Interesting... But he does make me very happy. (When I first brought him home I was thinking about naming him Scrambles the Death Dealer ((the hurricane from Metalocalypse)) but when I got to know him a bit I went with the least threatening name I could think of)

Tifa - Character in the game Final Fantasy VII (I let my boyfriend name him... He was originally thought to be a female.. then he got older, and he's definitely a dude. My boyfriend refuses to rename the poor guy.)

Nina - The name of the Babylonian goddess of fertility... *facepalm* ... (The other one I let the boyfriend name. Thankfully REALLY a female this time.)

Cameron - "Crooked Nose"... (His former owner named him, and I decided to keep the name, because it's adorable. Not sure if the meaning fits, as he doesn't exactly have the anatomy to fit to start with.)

Hi. I have 3 bettas.

George: just because I wanted to call him that. He is a gorgeous blue and purple vt
Flame: named by the students in my sons classroom. A feisty red vt
Jack: Captain Jack, a black vt with colorless fins with black edges. He reminds me of the Black Pearl from Pirates of the Carribeam, but my husband said Pearl wasn't a good name for him.
