This will be a new addition to our betta family soon.

Because of his coloring, I really want a "goth" name for him. I may name him "Jean-Claude" from the Anita Blake series. If anyone has any non-Twilight name ideas, I'd love to hear them;D No offense, I just haven't gotten into the Twilight series. My daughter has, though.

No wonder you couldn't resist him. I'm terrible with naming fish so I'll stay out of that one, lol. ;D

Thank you all very much

He should arrive home tomorrow. The seller is in GA and she shipped him today. She also does adoptions, but she didn't have any who needed adoption.

Wrath, I like that. I'll see what my daughter says. If his personality fits, that's probably what we'll name him.

Wrath is a good name. He's the king of the vampire race, the last purebred vampire. Totally goth.

But, umm... BB, if your daughter is into vampire stories... you may not want to let her read this series. It's kinda adult.

Yes, very adult books.

As soon as I saw him I thought Wrath

He is gorgeous. Could you share the seller's name?

Lestat anyone? (probably spelled that wrong )

Here's a few more... though I do like Wrath

Grendel --(from Beowulf)
Absinthe
Natrix -- (latin 'water snake')
Sardonyx -- (onyx that is red rather then black)

He's gorgeous by the way! ... you guys are tempting me to try Aquabid out myself... and I am collecting 'potato chips' at a respectible enough rate already!

Wow, thanks everyone! I'm really excited about him.

The seller is hopdiggity on Aquabid. She has some gorgeous fish on Aquabid right now. It also lists her website.

Shine-Beowulf is one of my FAVORITE stories. I wrote a paper on it years ago in school. I have the movie with Angelina Jolie.

You all came up with some awesome names! I'm stuck between Wrath and Armand atm. I had a betta named Lestat years ago when my daughter was around 2. He was blood red, he'd eat from my fingers, and years later, I still remember him. He was one of my special babies. He was like Drac, he lived for around 4 years.

I think we may give Lily (the cambo baby girl from Shawnie) the middle name of Absinthe. I think that would be cool.

That's interesting. I'm glad you posted that. I couldn't figure out of she was a breeder, a "dealer", or what the situation was. She had another male who's pitch black who I want, but I don't have room to set up another betta tank. That solid red male she has posted is another eye catcher.

Asmodeus-another name for the devil
Azrael-angel of death in the Koran
Dies Irae-means "Day of Wrath"
Grigori-fallen angels in from the Bible
Israfel-the angel who will blow the trumpet signalling judgement day (from the Bible)
Malik-angel who presides over **** in the Koran
Minax-"menacing" in Latin
Osiris-Egyptian ruler of the underworld
Samael-angel of death in the Talmud
Tenebrae-"darkness" in Latin
Vladmir-Vlad the Impaler, Romanian ruler and alleged vampire
Yama/Yamaraja-lord of death in Hinduism

I *think* (don't quote me on that she may breed as well) that a lot of fish Jennifer sells are fish that were transported in but shipping not paid for etc????? I spoke with her about transporting before I found Karen.

What a beautiful fish. Thank you for not naming him after one of the Twilight characters... besides, he doesn't have enough glitter to be from Twilight ;D
Absinthe is a good name, but would be better with a green/black betta.

Armand is an excellent name. He's a more interesting character than Lestat, anyway.
Barnabas Collins would be good.
Wrath's a good one, too

Thanks, all!

He arrived safe and sound! He's scoping out his new tank now. Once he's settled in, I'll get some pics of him.

Any names we don't use, I'll be keeping a log of. You all came up with some fabulous ideas. I love the open-mindedness and multi-culturalism of this forum. It's one of the many reasons I'm so proud and honored to be a member here.

How about Zuko (pronounced zoo-co) from Avaatar the last airbender cartoon. He is the Fire lord and a dark character and think it suits pretty well.

Thank you all

I may keep "Zuko" for another betta down the line. That's a fabulous name.

I'm hoping as he gets more used to tank life, he'll start showing more of his personality.

Wow... handsome boy! Congrats, BB.

SDS - Barnabas Collins. LOL I've got to remember that one. Definitely a tell on my age but would make a fantastic name for a betta boy!
