I currently have 3 betta's (just purchased a set up to get 2 more woot!) and have a theme I plan to stick with for all my bettas in my life.

So Armin was my first (his full name is Armin Van Betta - after Armin Van Buuren the dj). Then I got Garrix (named after Martin Garrix, the dj) and lastly Mako (named after Mako - the dj/edm artist). Trying to figure out the names for my next two but gonna wait to see what I end up getting first ^_^

So yeah....my theme is dj/edm artists xD

So the purple veiltail boy ended up being named Rebel Rebel 😄 still no name for the baby boy, but he's growing so fast it's crazy.

I ended up upgrading the sorority tank to a 20L & got some new girls for it, including 2 adoptions from a friend at work who felt bad for his girls after taking on a second job 😕 lacking the time to care for them he asked if I'd take them in & I immediately agreed (I have spare tanks in case the sorority didn't work out).

So I have 2 new half moon girls, one black & blue, the other black & super dark purple 🙂 I haven't named the blue girl yet but the purple girl has been tentatively named Jimi. Because of Hendrix's Purple Haze.

Then the other new girls are a silver & white dumbo half moon I named Grace (Grace Slick) & a beautiful piebald white/silver half moon with the brightest blue eyes. So I named her Frankie Sinatra.

The sorority got a ghost shrimp I didn't even think I was going to name... luckily I did not. He was eaten less than 3 hours later. The guilty culprits were Ruby, Pele & Lita.

My current rescue is Mystery and I named him that because
1. I honestly just didn't know what to name him
2. I didn't know what was going to happen to him
3. The seahorse from SpongeBob in that one episode lol

I was considering Mr. puff but I decided against it because then with my luck he would get dropsy and look like ms. puff lol

My next rescue I've already decided is gonna be Fawkes because in harry potter, Fawkes is a phoenix and rises from its ashes and comes alive again. I think its cool for a rescue but maybe I'm just obsessed with harry potter

So the two adoptions are doing great in the sorority - growing fast & playing with the other girl's. I named the purple & black girl Jimi & was at a loss for what to call the blue girl. After reading some Lao websites I decided to call her Sifa, which is Laotian for "blue"... so creative. 😕

Still no name for the red baby boy.

I have a little guy that it took me three days to name. His name is Beo.
My roommate suggested Feo because it's Spanish for "ugly" and he is a truly ugly little fellow (I love him so much!), and I loved the sound of it but not the meaning. Part of why I liked it is that it reminds me Beo, as in Beowulf, and next thing I know he's named Beo! He's a fearless little guy and it fits him so well. :)

Loki, a lovely EE plakat in a five gallon tank with some shrimp and a snail.
Beo, a beautifully ugly little guy (or gal), who's fins are still too ripped and his age too young for me to tell anything beyond "small and brown" in a temporary 3 gallon.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, two ADFs rooming temporarily homing with Beo.

Will eventually add a matching five for the frogs or Beo, depending on so many factors.

Hope to someday own a pea puffer with possibly some otos.

I have never named my fishes before but, after reading this thread will reconsider naming my two bettas. I'll let you know.

I hope this thread hasn't decayed enough for it to be a bad thing that I am posting on it.

But I originally was going to name my little guy Sepharoth. I am a gamer and all my pets have been named after video game characters. But within the first 48 hours after having my guy home, I kept calling him "L'il Buddy" so his name ended up becoming Buddy.

My Betta is named Lucky. I found him, in of all places a "Discount Home Goods" store, in New Haven, CT. Four days before, I had left rehab, and moved into a sober house. I was furnishing my room, which brought me to the store. This place thought it was OK to sell Betta fish as "home decor"! There were 5 cups there... Not even deli cups, like at major chain pet stores. These fish were in cups like shot glasses. I was horrified! 2 were dead, 2 were swimming sideways, but one very plain blue/black trooper was still upright and though his fins drooped far below his belly... He was alive, with only a tiny bit of fun rot. I told him
"Today is your lucky day!"
So with six shopping bags hanging off my arms, to my room we went. I quickly got on a popular shopping website, and got medicine, a 2.5 g. tank, and some plants and got Lucky set up.
Later that week, I stood outside the store with a petition sheet asking the store to stop selling fish. I succeeded in getting over 100 signatures of people pledging to boycott the store, if they continued to sell live animals, and assured the store owner I would not desist. HE AGREED TO STOP SELLING THE FISH! Yay!
Lucky is the smartest fish I ever met. He is not only trained to give kisses (through the glass), but will choose to give affection to me, BEFORE he eats, even with food already in the water. He is also very, weirdly, passive. His own image in a mirror, he looks at, tucks his fins, and hides.
I have since, left the sober house (due to it not being so sober....). Yep. I'm homeless. I couch surf, and sleep outdoors. LUCKY IS STILL WITH ME. He now hangs in a container with a lid, that I carry around with me. The stress of homeless living would kill many a small pet, but every day, Lucky is there for me, and I for him. He's my best friend in the world, and he gives me a reason to keep going, no matter what, because I want him to be happy.
I'm really the lucky one.

I have four Bettas. All of them are females.

So I am really in to Greek Mythology, so I decided to name them after Goddesses. Although one is named after a Latin Goddess. Their names are Luna, Celestia, Calypso, and Cassi(Cassiopia). Luna is an elephant ear, and I'm pretty sure the others are crowntail. They are my 10 gallon sorority.
