Like the green and blue dragons, copper dragons don't usually have white/silver bodies. They remain copper. Their fins can show different combinations - the classic grey background with red rays, giving it that copper/gold look. Or it can also come in other colors; red, orange, yellow, and black.
Personally I would just call him a copper dragon because of how the copper really is the most color you can see on him. Then in other pictures he looks to have yellow and a orangey pink that seems to be like a red wash in other bettas only its a different color on him.
Very interesting colors on him. Indjo, if you (personally) were the breeder and decided to put him up for sale on AB, what would be your title name for him?
I think that if I was at such a road block, I would call him a copper dragon and then explain who and what I crossed so buyers know how I got to such a unique color, but that doesn't matter much I this case.
