My first boy was Jude, because I had watched "Across the Universe" recently and thought it was a nice old-fashioned name (alas I was unable to listen to "Hey Jude" for months after he died without crying).
Then came "Baby V/C", who I bought as an unsexed baby and decided would be named either Cesario or Viola, after the twins in Twelfth Night. She ended up being a Viola. :)
I kind of went nuts and had- Ruth, Eleanor, Claire, Gail, Holly, and Rosaline. I was attempting a sorority. Rosaline turned out to be a male and was renamed Gabriel.
Then Claude & Marie, brother and sister and inexplicably French.
And finally Felix, my latest. Was almost named "Creamsicle" because of his colors but I decided to be a little more dignified. For some reason I constantly called him "Buddy", which was a first for me as far as nicknames go.
I also helped my mother name her bettas- Floyd AKA "Pretty Boy Floyd", Hank, Archimedes, and Leia ("Princess" or "General" depending on mood)
Honorary mention goes to my goldfish- Thing One, Thing Two, Thing Three, and Celeste. :)

|Fish 4 sale, ¢50 a fish.||I named my betta Donofin after the old movie Donovan’s Reef, I changed “van” to “fin” though. I named him that because I wanted him to reign over his “reef” in his 3.5 gallon tank!|

|bluedressgirl||This is Felix and Pheobe. Felix was named by my little sister and Phoebe was named by myself. The names don't have as much meaning as I would like, but they still sound wonderful.|

|FinalFishasy1991||I'm new here. Allow me to tell you about my betta fish. His name is Kenji. I named him after my favorite video game music composers, Kenji Ito. His notable soundtracks include the Mana series. I have a pic right here.|

I named my most recent betta, Hirao because I was searching through names with a Japanese theme and that one randomly came to me and I really liked how it fit the betta as well.

Chia - He's a youngster. I got him when he was approximately 3 months old, and now he is five months. He "sprouted" :) I love watching these beauties grow and he's turned into a dapper young blue VT.
Lolita - She is a half giant red dragon HMPK. She's extremely aggressive and she will most likely rip other fish to shreds … she's a flirty gal :)
Osgiliath - I HAD to have this boy. I saw him from afar yesterday while in PetSmart, beelined to him and within minutes he was mine. Osgiliath is named after a city in The Lord of the Rings, of which I am a huge fan of. He's a blue/orange/white marble HMPK … labelled as a Dragon, pfft.

Oooh I like this thread!
Onyx the Petco Betta. My bf suggested the name and thought it was a good fit.
Before Onyx, I had a Betta named Hattori Hanzo.

Tagawa - my first Siamese Fighter (known round here as a betta ;) ) named him after a Japanese martial artist actor. Ironically Tagawa is probably the least aggressive betta EVER.
Valentine - reminds me of a flamboyant New Romantic, in shades of violet and red. He was sent in error by the seller (who intended to send Kham), but he is a charismatic delight.
Kham - means ‘golden’ in a Thai dialect apparently. Just seemed to fit him. He doesn’t take much notice of me, but he LOVES rootling around his plants.

1. Prince S. - S for stunning that many people called him. (Galaxy Koi Plakat)
2. Princess Nemo - Because she is a Nemo Koi
3. Ama - Short for Amarillo which is Yellow in Spanish. (Yellow Koi Female)
4. Ro - Short for Rojo which is red un Spanish (Red Halfmoon male)
5. Mas - Short for mustard in Japanese (male Mustard Gas)
6. Texas Turquoise - Female Mustard Gas from Texas.
7. PapaSmurf - Name of a blue male HMPK baby from my first koi spawn.
These are names of some of my Bettas. I haven't named the rest.
Also, Ama passed away last month....beat up by Princess Nemo. 😢

My first little baby was named Pilot. I only had him for just over a month after he died while I cleaned his tank earlier today (fin rot & stress).
Also today my mom took me out to get a new betta, as I was heartbroken. I found this little baby betta who I decided to name Kiroku, meaning "memory." He's a skittish kid and he reminds me of Pilot. I'm treating this kid like royalty and trying to hand feed him.
I loved Pilot... And cherished him... AND THEN HE DECIDES "Oh yeah, Imma die now." LIKE MAN, I LOVED YOU!
