Looking for inspo for new betta

I really want to get another betta. I have my red+blue halfmoon Macbeth who is doing very well many months later (very proud of myself, being a first time betta mom), and I feel I'm ready for another little guy! I just don't know what fin type/colour type I want... With Macbeth, the second I saw him, I knew he was the one. But now that I've been in the betta community for a couple of months, I've discovered I really love halfmoon's, delta's and crowntail's in all sorts of beautiful colours! I'd love to see some images of your betta's for inspiration of what I may want to look out for. Also, name inspiration would be great as well. I'm considering Edmund Dantes, my fav book character to go with the "classical character" theme I wanna have going lol.

Attached are pics of our most recent little boy who we added to the family a little while after we lost our Darwin. The guy who is in the pics we named Decker. He's a Koi betta, and since he's the colors found in a deck of cards he became Decker. Darwin was a spade tail who was a tri color of raspberry, pink, and white. It's certainly fun thinking of new names for new additions!

That's my little betta. Still haven't decided on a name for him yet. He's a blue mustard.

Some of my favorite bettas are kois and salamander (red with blue iridesence to produce a lavender appearance) bettas, and my favorites fins are Dumbo, spade tail and double/heart tail. Here are a couple picsof mine
Igneous- salamander betta, slight EE and spadetail (I've only ever had plakats)

And here's one I never got to name (he jumped while I was outing him into his tank and never recovered from the fall 😢) he was a marble doubletail

Just wanted to say I absolutely support your naming idea! I'm totally not obsessed with the count of monte cristo (cough totally not soon to be the next choice in my geography-themed betta names cough). Glad to see I'm not the only one who loves the classics :P *hides Hamlet and Ophelia the honey gourami*

I also have Tom Servo, a normal-size Salamander HMEE.

Giant geno = Larger than normal-sized Betta but not as big as a true Giant.

Forgot to mention all my Betta come from the same seller.
