Maybe this could be a sticky? I dunno....
Anyways, so in this thread, post the names of your bettas and what they mean to you or what their actual meanings are! Or you can post your favourite betta names or ideas for other fish keepers! I'll start:
Asparagus: Started off as a joke, but then it kind of grew on me. Now it's her name! :lol:
P.J.: Just thought it was cute and he was a kind of baby blue so I named him P.J. like pyjamas!
Moseby: Name from a show I like to watch, and the name really fit him!

Now it's your turn!

Akira - The name means intelligent but I named him after the anime character Akira Touya. He's smart and very silly though.

Maka - Named after one of the main characters in Soul Eater and was named that because the name Maka kept showing up in my head whenever I looked at her. After getting nothing from the crowntail next to her I chose her because I knew she was meant to be mine. She's kinda derp though.

Drama Queen - She's such a crazy girl. She freaks out over the smallest things. I stick my finger in the tank and she gets all stressed. New plant, stressed. But show her another fish and she FLARESSS. She always wants attention. LOL
Ocean - She's a lovely blue. My mom named her. Just kinda stuck. (She's my avatar)
Spazz - as you can probably guess, he's a spazz. He flares at the silliest things (my jewellery, my pliers) and when I turn music on, he "dances" to it! :D
Skittles - my moms fish. He just seemed like a skittles LOL.
Smiley Unger - my sisters fish. He always looks like he's smiling. ONe of the only bettas I've ever seen that doesn't look grumpy. Unger is a name from my cousin. She goes to a school that is majority made up of students AND teachers with the last name Unger. Its really weird. LOL. So we middlenamed Smiley Unger.
I have a new girl, but she doesn't have a name yet. Waiting for her to color up.

I LOVE THIS THREAD. Too cute!

Twitch- Because he was a super spazz in his cup at the store and on the way home, and also because of his color somewhat reminding me of a friend's role play character's hair. (he is my avatar)

Spot- Because when i got him he had breeder bars just like a female. XD And i thought it was funny.

Willy- as in Free Willy... I won this guy from a carnival game that i had to play fifty bajillian times. XD I saved him really, because they were using him as PART of the game. They had him in a cup, and another cup taped on top of his cup was open, then another cup on either side, and you had to bounce a ball into the cups, the side cups won you a goldfish, and the top cup won you a betta... he was the last one. ;^;

Liberty - red white and blue CT who is always very proud looking when he flares. Fits well IMO. :)
Dumbo - because I love the movie and he's a dumbo. On day one he dove right out of the tank the moment I opened the lid.
Butterfly - nothing else in the world fit, and he's a butterfly color pattern. :)
Luna Lovegood- she's white and goofy, pretty, and I love harry potter.

Robert Falcon Scott -

Dead arctic explorer. :p So named because of his little white lips. I couldn't think of anything with white lips other than a dead arctic explorer.

The two Otocinclus are his first mates William Lashly and Lawrence Oates.

Lemon ~ He's yellow, lemons are yellow too.
Sakura ~ Because he is a delicate cherry blossom pink.
Namazu ~ The name of a mythical Japanese catfish that causes earthquakes.
Chili ~ He's pretty hotheaded and flares at everything.
Mars ~ Named after the Roman War God. He's always at war with Chili, lol
Rooibos ~ Was drinking rooibos tea, and since he's a red butterfly, thought it was a good name. I call him Roo though.
Mojo ~ It fits him! Originally it was Mojito, then I just shortened it.
Wilder ~ He reminds me of Betta Imbellis with his colours.

Frigga ~ Because she's cute.
Astarte ~ I've always liked the name, and it popped into my head.
The rest of the girls are named after female characters from JRR Tolkien.

Dodo - the bird

Actually, I named him after my cousin's puppy that passed away. My cousin always called the puppy "dodi dodi" which means "come" in our native language. It's hard to say so often so they shortened it to Dodo. Unfortunately, the puppy had some hereditary disease that couldn't be cured and went to puppy heaven.

My betta swims over when we call to him "dodi dodi"... yeah, shortened to Dodo just like the puppy.

The General - he flares and tries to attack everybody who is not me. And by everybody, I mean anybody who walks into the bathroom, the cats, the snail I tried to give him, the cory cats I tried to give him, the sink...

Mouse - he's TINY, and really easily amused by shinys.

Byte - he launches himself at food particles, and lives right next to my computer.

Peaches - well, he's orange. And very, very vain. When I put a mirror in there, he struts, and looks at himself at all angles. So, I figured he would want a name based on his looks.

Rubic - he's ruby colored, and so I made the name more masculine.

Tips - he's very dark colored with a white trim on his tail/fins.

Key - when I got him, he was the color of key lime pie. Now, he's marbled with cream/light blue as well as the green.

Lock - he's the same colors as Key, so I did Lock and Key. hahahahaha... /clears throat

Sunset - he's dark blue, with a lot of orangey-peach colors on him. So, he's clearly the sky with the sunsetting.

Brox - no idea, the name just came to me when I was looking at him.

I love those names; Key, Lock and Byte! That is so cool! Hey have you ever heard of the USB betta tanks that you hook up to your computer? They are like not even a 1/2 gallon. Pathetic!
