I named my RT betta after the X-Men character Mystique because of his blue coloring and the fact that he was sold as a female (and even managed to fool me for a couple of days).

Wild Type PK male
White HMPK male
Black HMPK male
Blue Marble Giant PK male
2 Blue Marble DeT males
Cellophane DeT male
Turquoise HM male
Multicolor PK female
Blue Marble VT female
6 Half Dragon HMPK females
Multicolor DT female

Apparently I'm naming mine after astronomic phenomena.

I am currently restoring a 1970 Mustang Grande.

Starlight-Butterfly DD
I sense goofy astronomical names.

Gallifrey ~ Because I love Dr Who, and it's the planet where The Doctor comes from. NN: Galli
Theta ~ Was thinking about the Greek alphabet, and this just stuck.
Sigma ~ See above
Tobias ~ Named after a favourite character in a long running sci fi kidlit series that I still cherish. NN: Toby, Tobitoes, Tibbs ... he's a fish of many nicknames :)
Daisy May ~ She just had this brightness about her and her colours reminded me of a daisy, all springy and pretty.
Kosimo ~ his name means "Cosmos" ... just thought the variant sounded like him, plus he's red.
Rassilon ~ Another Dr Who character :P NN: Razz, Razzle
Luthien ~ After JRR Tolkien's Luthien Tinuviel. I've always loved Tolkien, and she just seems to fit her name so perfectly. NN: Lulu, Lu, Princess

Dusty was named because being a veil tail, he has long fins that reminded me of a dust mop.

Hi, im new here.
I have 4 bettas, and love them all! So here are their names and why i chose them;
Mr Grumpy- He is my first betta, he was originally called Amethyst because of his purple colour, after having him a couple of days i realised what a grumpy little fish he is and changed his name.
Mr Happy- He is the happiest fish i have had, he is like a little puppy that wags his tail when he see's me. I also got him at a time when i needed cheering up and he made me super happy.
Mr Feisty- He is red and he loves to flare at everything, he is super energetic
Mr Spot- I couldnt pick anything that suited him, i called him Mr Spot because he is a dalamation.
So there are my fish and their names!

Alexander(Alex)-Because he acts all tough but he's really just a super sweet boy. Plus Alexander is my favorite name.

Riley(Riles)-When I was driveing home with him in the car thinking of names a O'Riley comercial went on the radio. LOL

Apollo-(Not really "my" betta but I take care of him)-My brothers school is called Apollo and he was his school colors.

Clara <3
R.I.P I will never forget you Alexander. You brightened my life
