A Betta with No Name

    My betta needs a name. I'm kind of at a loss. The last time I had bettas, they were in a Roman ruins-themed tank and so they all had Roman names: Nero, Romulus, and Cicero. However, this tank has no theme, so I'm stuck. I prefer real names. A thought I had was Louis, or Louie...and here's my train of thought on that name: he was marked as a whiteseam super delta. The Mississippi River Delta is in Louisiana. Louisiana -> Louis. But the name isn't really grabbing me. So I thought I'd see what you all could come up with. No guarantees I'll actually use what you suggest! ;)

    Aw what a pretty fish!! :)

    Few suggestions:

    Mickey
    Gabriel
    Joey
    Sam
    Fred
    Moose

    In case you like literary names:
    Dumbledore
    Hugo
    Romeo

    Clever/ironic names:
    Jaws

    Yep that's all I can think of. Hope you find a good name!

    Fluffy :D

    Sorry I had to. I think naming fish is a death sentence for them. When I started all of this, I kept a few 5 gallons with betta. Everyone I named died...

    I do like Romeo, or something that sounds Native American, like an Indian name! What I found online:

    Yeah I almost named mine Romeo but decided to go with Dan the Man, from the show Roseanne. He's a pink fish! I had to!

    I'm awful. I still haven't picked a name. But to be honest, for the first few days I wasn't sure he was going to live long. But I changed his filter yesterday to one with less water flow and he's perked up right away. So I need to get on with the naming thing.

    What about a name based off how his colors look? I got a fuchsia betta and named him hawkeye :p

    Sorry Neptune (my bettas name) and Poseidon (my pleco) are taken already :p

    I forgot to tell you. His name is Boo Radley.

    From one of the great classics. Both book and movie. Fitting name...someone who prefers living alone with no one bothering him (just like a betta). After all, that's why Atticus covered for him.

    Nice name :) Super cute for a fish

    I was going to suggest Atticus fish.. As I had named my beta long ago... He lived three years before he bellied up..
