What should I name my new betta buddy?

Asked by wildpotato (13884 points ) April 23rd, 2010

He’s to be an office fish; a little celebration of my promotion and new permanent workstation.* He’s a half moon betta (though not near as well bred as that fellow), and has a light cream and iridescent green body and dark red fins and tail, shot through with the iridescent green of his body.

I was thinking maybe Mr. Mooney because I have warm childhood memories of The Lucy Show. But the honorific seems a bit formal for such a friendly little guy. Any suggestions?

*This is not an impulse fish to be kept in a cup by my keyboard. He will have a 2.5 gal, food on Saturdays, and a heater and pump if he needs them (my last little guys did, but they seem to be very individual critters so we shall see).

I went through a phase of naming mine after Greek letters. Alpha Betta, Gamma Betta, Omega Betta, etc.

Dr. Moon… wait, that’s just my fangeek showing, sorry.

Hmmm…How about Sprig? he’s green and red (with cream) like a flower bud.

Ghealach (phonetically: Ga-luck)
Its Irish for moon. Though it sounds a bit like Klingon. =/

I thought of naming mine “Alpha, the betta” but I eventually just wound up calling him “stupid fish”.
