Denny, my magenta VT, was my first betta. I couldn't think of a name, but as I was driving home I saw a Denny's Drive Thru sign. The light was hitting him just right so he glowed red, matching the lettering on the sign, and I thought, hmm, Denny. That's a good name for this little guy. I couldn't stop thinking of him as Denny after that, so the name just stuck.
I am a Harry Potter fan (the books, not the movies), so I wanted to name Asteria something Harry Potter related. I started thinking of names I liked, and came up with Astoria (Draco Malfoy's wife). I didn't necessarily want to name my fish after Astoria Greengrass, though, so I changed the o to an e. Alastor, my tiger nerite snail in Asteria's tank, is named after Alastor (Mad-Eye) Moody, because snails sort of have magical eyes they can swivel around.
When I got Glenn, I figured I'd try the Denny tactic and look at street signs for names. I passed Glen Road, and I figured the name fit him. I added and extra n, just to alter it a little bit.
