Name For A Male Betta!

I recently went to the petstore, and fell in love with a majestic half-moon, and had to bring him home.
I didn't have a tank for him the first night, and hope to get around a 5 gallon tonight, until we get our 29 gallon's filter repaired.
Anyway, he looks like the handsome male in my picture, and I want a unique name to give him, because he is a very unique fish!

Thanks!
-Queenie

Welcome to the Forums!

Wow, you found a keeper! King? Pinky? Jewel? You can try foreign names.

Japanese: Katashi...means "firm, strong" in Japanese
Russian: Dimitri
Italian: Fabio
German: Felix...means "lucky, successful"

Hope this helped!

Hi Queenie! Is your new Betta a pink one? The one as your profile picture?

As soon as I read Fabio, I had an image of THE Fabio rolling around on a grand piano in the new Old Spice commercial!

Oh...that's such a ghastly commercial!

Haha, yepp, that's what he looks like, almost exactly.
I will get a picture of him, since I just got his new tank and he is loving it!

All of the names are amazing, it's so hard to decide! Maybe with my next betta I can use another one of you're names!

Thanks so much for the help!
Oh and, If you saw my signature, I already had a betta named Fabio, but thanks anyway xD

You could go to a baby name website and look up names by definition. Like 'king,' or 'prince.' There are some really unique names on those sites with beautiful meanings. Here are a few I found, but they might be a bit bizarre for you:

Alberic - Germanic, means elfin king
Aamer - Arabic, prince
Balin - Sanskrit, strong
Az - Hebrew, strong
