Help me name my Marble Dragon Halfmoon!

I have had this guy for like a month and I just can't name him! Background: This is a guy I bought from aquabid.com. I was buying another fish (Pencil), who the breeder told me was not doing so hot, so he was offering a second freebie fish in case the one I ordered died. So he showed me a white betta to be my freebie and I was not thrilled. So I asked for more options. He sent me like 5-6 more pics of other bettas that were STUNNING! So i chose a yellow HM (Chester Cherub) for my freebie, and then HAD HAD HAD to buy this other guy for the addtl $20 cause I could NOT pass him up...... Before I brought him home I named him "Robocop" cause thats what he reminded me of from his breeder photo. But now having him here, he is so much more gorgeous than I imagined and so amazing that I feel he needs a much better name! I just can't think of one! So, longwinded story complete, here's some pics for reference, and maybe the story will help get creative juices flowing for good name ideas!! Thanks!!!

6/15/11 When I first got him, all stressy and no black whatsoever :( he didn't recoup for a week or so. Had to use some "general cure" to perk him back up.

The flash makes him look more teal but he is a darker blue in person, more similar to the breeder photo blue but not quite that dark. He is very skinny (despite feeding him lots... and lots... and he eats like a pig) and he is very friendly and curious. Never stops moving when he sees me. But if I am not there to feed him, he rests inside his little cave :} like a dog in a dog house :P He reminds me of a painting with his colors. He also has a very white face, in person... and so sort of reminds me of a ghost but I don't like ghosts so I don't want to name him that!

I also just watched "How to train your dragon" (SO GOOD!) and so I am almost wanting to name him Dragon or Toothless, but maybe those names are not regal enough?! Please help. lol.

Those japanese wave prints are by a guy named Hokusai. Maybe Hokusai or Hoku or Ahok? I think the wave print was near mount Fuji too so maybe Fuji?

I think Fuji would suit him well :D But then again, so would Hokusai! As soon as I saw your betta I thought of that Japanese print but didn't know the name of it >:(

He looks awesome =). I love the Japanese print. It reminds me of the power of Poseidon or Neptune, Greek and Roman Gods of the sea.
