I named my little dude Turd Ferguson, after an old SNL skit my hubby and I like to quote. Also because he poops on my plants.

Vanilla - (plat. white HMPK) he reminds me of vanilla ice cream.
Duke (blue grizzle VT) - In honour of Duke Ellington.
Primavera (green pastel EEF) - She reminds me of springtime with all her fluttering about <3
Arachne (HMPK Koi F) - Honestly I don't know. But she's a koi and her current pattern reminds me of a spider web.
Shish (orange pastel butterfly VT) - I'm not sure why, except that he looks like he should be named it.
Raku (copper orange DDRCT) - He's named after a type of pottery that is fired at over 1000 degrees and he looks like a little flaming coal, so.

This is Marilyn! Because as soon as I saw this fish I instantly thought of Marilyn Monroe in her white dress in The Seven Year Itch. And yes I know this is a male but hey, no gender stereotypes right?! He identifies as female lol and mama doesn’t judge

I have 3 more since the last time I posted... haven't named them yet. A black, purple & teal female halfmoon, a purple, white, green, pink & black (!) Male veiltail, & a male fry so young you can't tell what he's going to look like. He's white body/red fins so far & gobbling frozen brine shrimp & bloodworm pieces 3 times a day.

I don't know about names... although the veil boy may end up with a David Bowie related name like Duke did. Something about his colors reminds me of Bowie's super colorful Ziggy Stardust outfits. I'm thinking Pele for the new girl.

Mine are named Valentino (he's a red feather tail and looks like a valentine), Jane, Bertie (she's big, a "queen" blue and red, so she needed a big girl name), Fishsticks, Sparkletus (a play on Spartacus for a sparkly HM I have), Thunder (he was orange, blue, and white like the OKC Thunder basketball team), Raider (the mascot at the college I work at; he's the school colors), and Hank Voight - pictured below - who is named after the sergeant on Chicago PD who always wears black and is really tough.

She's definitely Pele now. The baby boy is getting very active & friendly - he's only been with me 4 days & he's already greeting regularly even without food & following me when I move around his tank. I still haven't named the purple boy.

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.

Come visit Cedar and Glenn at my journal: https://www.bettafish.com/144-journa...a-journal.html

3.5 Gallon:
Cedar, Pinkish-white HM male with blue streaks

10 Gallon:
Glenn, Blue-Green HM Male

Denny, Magenta Male VT (my baby)

Asteria, Black HM Female With Blue Iridescence

My deltaboi's name is Thrawn. c: I've been actively keeping bettas for about five years, and every single one of them has had a Star Wars name. He's not blue though; he's a purpley-pink color.

"Just keep swimming."

My Betta's name is Aether. I wanted to give him a greek or roman god's name, so i looked up minor greek gods, and that particular website Aether roughly means "light" in greek or latin (can't remember which). (He's a white betta with a metallic like colors of blue and green. He also has a few cute little dark blue spots on his almost invisible pectoral fins) I don't know if that information is true, but the name stuck :)
