2 New Aquabid HM's need names!

So I got 2 new HM's off Aquabid and they are doing fairly well in their QT tanks. But I am a bit stumped with names... for the first time ever.

The first one is a huge OHM opaque white from Aquastar 71. He has been healthy as a horse and very dignified in his behavior. Being slightly picky about food, never wolfing or jumping. Active without being spazzy and interactive in a calming way.

The other one is a smaller platinum gold halfmoon with a face and body unlike any other betta I have had... maybe he is very young? The belly never rounds out when you feed him and his eyes are huge with a small short mouth that isn't upturned. He is on the shy side, and unfortunately came with missing scales all over his body.

MY original plan was to name the big white Dillinger and the other one Nelson (aka babyface nelson) to go with "pretty boy" floyd to make up the depression era gang. But I am questioning naming them after gangsters that never lived passed 35, especially since Floyd has had some health issues.

So now I am tossing around - Puff (Daddy) and Slim, Cumo (means cloud or spider in Japanese) and Chibi (slang for tiny in Japanese) Hiro and Mohinder....

I really do like my original names, since they suit them ... but do you think it's bad luck to name them after criminals that met early deaths?

SNOW! haha, but seriously, when I see your first boy, he's just so bright and white, I think snow. Maybe some variation like Snowflake? (not very manly I know, but no two snow flakes are alike, and he sure looks and sounds like a one of a kind betta)

Uki would be nice
Or maybe glacier? Frost? I know, one track mind. But he looks like snow to me.

Hmmm those might work... I acutally didn't think of focusing on his color, but seeing as it is what even non-betta people seem to notice first.

What about a spanish theme - Sancho (as in the other man) and Flaco (skinny)?

Any suggestions for the little guy? I don't know why but I want their names to work with each other. Guess that it's not so important though!

I don't really like the orginal names, sorry D:I love Cumo or Uki for the GORGES white one. For the cute orangey one I would say Floon or Coon!

I <3 the orange one, nice find!

the second one looks like an ivory... or a brides dress. Lol.

perhaps something based more on their personality? or some combination thereof?
