My current seven are:
Little Fish- I bought her as a Petco baby betta and this name stuck.
Rosie and Posie- they looked identical when I bought them (cambodians with red fins) and so I gave them matching names. Posie turned orange after she got accustomed to her home but she had been Posie for long enough that nothing else would have sounded right.
Serena-named for sirens/mermaids
Rainbow Fish-my little white fish. I agree with the post above, ironic names are cool. :)
Alex-In honor of the incredibly helpful, sweet, and knowledgeable employee at Petco. Alex is my newest girl and the name doesn't quite fit her so her name will probably change.

My boys are Titan and Tinni.
Titan was supposed to be Triton as in King Triton, Ariel's Father in The Little Mermaid. But I kept slipping and saying Titan so Titan it is. I call him Whitey Tidy affectionately as he is a white marble.
Tini is short for martini. He got his name for two reasons, one there are martini glasses in all my fish tanks. Two, he shares a divided tank with Titan and it just sounded cute together. lol. (Yes, I had a hard time finding the right name and just gave up and named him something stupid)

Well I originally didn't put much thought into the names and quickly named them Larry N' Joe. I renamed them tonight.

I named my newest fish after a video ( Pewdiepie) Who did walkthroughs for a game, Amnesia. A little statue that he would carry around. He named him, Stephano. c:

Fiesty: Because he's an aggressive little guy with a big ego.
Apache: He looks like a living Native American headdress, with feathers and all.
Kotori: "Screech Owl Spirit". I just liked it, and he does remind me of a little spirit. NN is Koti.
Pandora: It's just a name that's stuck to her, though I just call her Pandy.
Aurelius: Because he looks like gold with all that yellow and those sparkling metallic scales. Reyli is what I call him mostly.
Waldo: Where is he? Yes, he looks like Waldo from Where's Waldo. Also, since he's a marble, I'm sure his colour will change to who knows what.

I haven't got my first Betta yet (very shortly) but his name will be Valancourt, shortened to Valley.

He's a character in one of my favourite books, and I just love the name :)

When I was headed to the store to buy my betta I saw a chevron of swans which reminded me of a scene from Susan Cooper's "The Grey King". Therefore I decided to name my new little friend "Arthur" before I even met him.

Thankfully the betta I chose seems to be living up to the legend and is beautiful, courageous and very full of himself.

Ive got a lot of girls, mostly named after constellations, moons, people from myths and made up names.
Currently i have:
Odella- Orange grizzle VT with sky blue flash
Adeline- Blue and purple VT
Twitch-Red copper CT
Beltane -Blue Mustard gas VT
Andromeda- big red VT with blue flash
Faustine dark orange VT with green flash
Tith- grizzle yellow VT with slight sky blue flash
Phayet- denim blue CT
Pandora-yellow grizzle VT with sky blue flash and pink fins
Persephone -Turquoise CT with solid coloring on her pectoral fins
Cassiopiea- cambodian CT
Echo- White, blue purple marble HM
Ashling (more commonly referred to as Darkling)-Black CT with reddish fins and faint blue flash
Isadora-Cambodian CT with intense green flash
Cornix- true green DT

Cassiopiea, Andromeda, Persephone, Pandora, and Echo are all constellation/moon/star names.
Isadora means gift of the moon
Ashling means Dream/vision
Cornix was a lesser goddess who was turned into a crow
Beltane is a Gaelic festival
and the rest came to mind as i got them/i made them up.

Egil - Red dragon HM with black edging to his fins.

The girls:
Lolth - Copper marble dragon HM
Freydis - Black dragon HM

That last little one needs a name. >>
