Question Male Betta Fish names!!

I am a NEW betta mommy! I have 3 beautiful boys!! Our first is a blue-green male that we named Mr.Fish. (actually our 3 year old named him that) Our second one is a Red male, I believe they called him a crowntail? His name is Fireball! Our third is a black one with some silver/white in his fin. I think he was a half-moon?

Anyway our black one doesn't have a name yet!! And he isn't really showing much of a personality except that he does hide ALOT! He comes out to eat and then goes back into hiding.

I am thinking of naming him Shadow, due to the fact that we never see him.
But I would like some more input on names....
What do you think? And do you have any good names to suggest?

Wow! What a beautiful black and white boy! I'd name him something like Oreo or Popper (because it reminds me of Mr. Popper's Penguins), something along those lines. I like Shadow as a name, as it highlights his color. It would be nice to mention his white streaks too, they're so pretty.

Cinderwolf - I'm not sure my husband would appreciate a bunch of bettas named after the men in my romance novels!! LOL!! I see what you are saying though and it's great suggestion. I will be keeping that in mind for our future bettas. (I am in the process of trying to talk my husband into another Betta tank!!)

Sivan - I really like Oreo! I should have thought of that one myself!! I just can't seem to find the names for these guys too easy though!! And I normally would have mentioned his white! BUT we didn't know he had any white, besides on his two bottom fins. That picture was the first on I ever took of him, and the white only showed up with the flash on. So i tried to take another picture, last night, but this time his white in the first picture showed up as a pinkish color (this picture was also taken when he was flaring at his reflection)

I included my 2nd picture of him. He was flaring at his reflection, which, all 3 of my bettas do when they catch a reflection in the glass :)

Noir
Nebula
Midnight
Nightwing
Dusk

Or how about after his personality?
