New sorority!!!*pic heavy, of course* Help with names please!!!

So I went in the other day and ended up getting a male and female. I couldn't resist getting more girls today and decided to finally start a sorority. They are adorable and I made sure to get similar sizes. I hope that their age, size and sibling relation with help with keeping peace in the tank.

There are 5 females in a planted 10 gallon. I will have many more plants but they are in QT at the moment and some are growing in my clippings tank.


THEY ALL NEED NAMES! Please name my new babies!


Here they are


They are all Cambodian style or cellophane body types. I know cambos need to have one solid color only on fins. So these wouldn't technically apply as cambos. But the gene is present for certain.



Marble ct








I have no idea about the tail type of the rest of them. They are from a breeder who has VTs, CTs and PKs.


Multi?








Pastel Orange?







Possible Orange Dalmatian









Pastel orange-yellow








Some pics once introduced to their tank.

Looks nice :) What size aquarium are you using? I am thinking about converting my 29 gallon into a sorority when I get enough females :)
Either that or I may get a Axolotl haha

You CT girl is amazing... I may get you to pick one up for me when we are able to ship the PK boy down :) I miss having a CT female. Very beautiful group of girls. I'm horrible on names, unless you want my 3yr old to take a stab at it

Thanks for the complements.

The tank is a 10 gallon. I will eventually upgrade to a 20 or 37 when I get more girls. I will be waiting for another shipment before I do though. I like to have some variation in the gene pool.

Axolotls are very nice! None around here but I was considering them for a while. I love the Leucistic and white albinos.


I'll let you know if I find any more CTs. I cant tell what the other girls are because they have been seriously nipped.


Any name suggestions are welcomed. Even by a 3 year old.

I love planatary, space, star, constellation, unusual and old english names
Here are a few names I've been playing around with:
Truely, Townsen, Jupiter, Tipler, Europa, Io (pronounced EYE-OH), Sweep, Pallene, Ophelia, Apoline, Ashalyn, Sinope, Thrym, Oberon, Lichen, Aldersky, Cephius, Ganymede, Callisto, Orion etc.
I find interesting names within my interests. I like googling star names and constellations. For instance, if you like classical music try google searching for names of violin/trumpet/whatever instrument makers names...
Google is my best friend.

She also seems to be the Alpha






Calliope

She looks like an Orange dal CT






Lucina

Talking I think I'm good with names.

Awwww! They are all so pretty! I'm pretty good with names (I think). Ever since I considered starting a sorority or even getting another betta (or more than one) I've been compiling a list of names. So far it's 3 pages long (I got a little carried away). I use star names, greek/roman/egyptian god and goddess names as well as any that happen to randomly pop into my head. I have my computer mostly all day at school so whenever I think of a good name I pull up my document and type it up. Feel free to copy any of my ideas. You need them more than me at this point.

Seems like we have similar tastes! I names them all after greek mythological figures. I think it suits them! Would love to see your list!
