Well. I came up with Tony's name when I told my boyfriend that I was getting a new fish. He made up a joke about naming the fish after him and well. It ended up happening. Once poor Tony passed away, and I got a new Half moon, I also named him after my Boyfriend XD Which he finds adorable. When I got Jem, I wasn't really planning on getting another betta, but seeing a healthy Halfmoon Plakat I couldn't say no to him. He seemed so depressed in his little cup, and his Jem like colors striked me. Then I recently got Scout, who I named after a game I play xD

Mine are named oddly:

Senator - because he's red, white and blue.

Assassin - because he has a black head with tight dark blue body and flowing red robe finnage. Also he does a somersault!

Honey Mustard - because well, he looks like honey mustard. He usually picks a corner of the tank and sits there looking at my wife working on her computer, but this one time, he darted around the tank in quick circles and then crash landed on the gravel with his face down. That had to hurt.

Goblin was named after common monsters in video games. My ghost shrimps are named after programming code types, and the marimo is named after another monster. Goblin, Gremlin, int, bool, char, float. :)

Teehee, programmer here also :). Great idea with the shrimp, but can you actually tell them apart?!

I've raised two bettas until now:
- The first one was named "Insano", because his face reminded me of a sad clown puppet that I own and has the same name. Sadly, Insano past away a few years back (his time had come).
- The one that I got the other week has been given the name "Ghoul". He is white with red fins, and since I'm a huge fan of anything horror, it was just a matter of time until I started associating him with a blood soaked ghastly white figure roaming the graveyard :D

My betta's name is Blau, which is german for blue. I wish I could find bettas with the colors depicted in this forum they are so awesome looking but I'll stick with Blau until I move back out of my parents and into a home where I can put up MUCH MORE TANKS!!!!

I do a lot of writing and named both my bettas (past and present) after two of my characters.

Kio was a kind fella with an extremely loving personality, just like the 'person' he was named after. Daichi, on the other hand, is an extremely narcissistic and aggressive...again, much like my character.

Their colors also played a small part in their names:

Kio was red, character has red hair
Daichi is blue, character has blue eyes

Oh, here's the translations for there names just for fun:

Kio ( 気男 ) - male spirit (loose translation)
Daichi ( 大智 ) - great wisdom

(names make more sense if you knew the story, they're both 'ironic')​

Ann got her name from Parks & Recreation -- Leslie is always using silly terminology to refer to Ann on the show, and at one point said, "Oh Ann, you beautiful tropical fish."

So I got a beautiful tropical fish and named her Ann. =']

Well my fish started out as Jackson, just cause I like that name but it didnt fit so I decided he needed a Shakespeare name cause he is a fancy fish and needs a fancy name. It was between Fleance and Benvolio. Benvolio won haha.

We have Hannibal. He earned his name. Bit me about 5 times or more on the move from his ick cup to his clean tank when we got him. The name seems to fit ans so has stuck... And he bites any chance he gets despite his flirty dances.

He has an anubias floating about in his tank. He seems to enjoy it. Some nights he'll sleep up in it though he usually sleeps in his barrels or in the gloom under his heater against the side of the tank. It's a low light plant and pretty easy to maintain (so far).
