Anyone Else Theme their Fish's Names?

The first betta I was gonna get (He lived at my friends house and was gonna come home with me once I got a tank set up, but he got sick and died suddenly) was gonna be named Caligula. I decided to continue the Roman Emperor theme and my current betta is Tiberius. If I decide to divide my tank, the next one is gonna be Nero or Titus. And after that, maybe Vespaspian or Hadrian or Octavian.

Please tell me I am not the only one who themes her betta names?

(Funnily enough, Tiberius the fish is nothing like Tiberius the Roman emperor. XD)

I'm in love with everything about the culture of Hellenistic Greece, so I give all my fish Greek names. <3 There's Spiridion, which means little ghost, who is a dark indigo mustard gas VT, and Hermes, the VT fish I *acquired* named after the situation in which I acquired him... Hehe. And then there's Phaistosthe DeT, named after the lame Greek god of metalwork, Hephaistos, because he has a fin deformity. There was an Ares, but he recently passed. He was named Ares bc he started out a total weenie, but became a vicious, aggressive beast, just like the change in the god Ares.

I've got Ratchet, Mirage, Wheeljack (Known as Moonshoes though), and Starscream.

i theme them, but don't follow the same theme.

my first boy was Cup. silly little name.
then, it was Lulu, Zidane, Freya, Mister Auron, Weiss. all final fantasy themed.
then, it was Gackt, Hyde, and Chappy Belle. Jrock themed.
then, Dante. Devil May Cry.
Caroline. Anime, specifically Paradise Kiss.
Purple. another silly name.
Ichi, named after a Japanese friend of mine.
now, it's Team Fortress 2. i have Spy, Heavy, Scout, and soon i'll have Sniper.

i feel like i'm missing someone, though. o.0

I've got two themes on the go, not that I always stick to them.
Goddesses for my girls, or gemstones.
Scuzi (computer term), Champagne, Raven (f), Oxide (f), Isis (f, RIP), Pappion (f RIP), Silver (f RIP), Freya (f RIP), Lapis (f I think), Ruby (f), Venus (f), Aphrodite (f), Velvet (f), plus two I have not named yet, one male, one female, the girl I've been going with Mars, but it just doesn't seem to suit her, so not permanent.

I started with the FRIENDS theme. My 6 year old cat is Rachel. I had Chandler (red VT) but he died in a freak accident last month :(. I also have Ross and Joey. I plan on reserving Phoebe and Monica for future cats - but that may change :)

I also have a LOST theme going on. See signature :)
Justin is my only non-theme guy. He's named after the lead singer of Blue October

I actually don't normally name my fish. I've named a couple over the years but not with any one theme.

of my 4 current betta, only Tux (my pk boy) has a name.
