What’s In A Name?
Well, when it comes to Bettas, the name given to them usually reflects something about them. This can be color, tail type, personality, or even appearance, but color and temperament are usually the deciding factors. Unsurprising really when you think about it since this fish is known best for its amazing colors and feisty approach to life.
There is, however, no reason why you shouldn’t name your Betta anything you like unless you’re going to get embarrassed telling friends and family you’ve called them something like Honey Bun, Cutie Pie, or Sweet Cheeks. If so, stay away from names like these!
Names By Theme
Another way to name your Bettas is to choose a theme. I say Bettas because they are addictive and you’re sure to end up keeping more than one. Themes can also apply if you decide to keep females who are best kept in larger numbers known as a sorority. Themes can be anything of your choosing but here are a few suggestions just to get your imagination going.
- Mythical Names – From Greek, Norse and Roman Gods and Goddesses to fantastic sea creatures, names from myth are always popular.
- Popular Culture – Favourite characters from TV, film, literature, and gaming can make great names for Bettas that you’re unlikely to forget.
- Friends & Family – It can be a great compliment to name your beloved fish after a loved one. However, be warned that some family members may not like it so be sure to check that they don’t mind first.
- Animal Names – Want to confuse people and be really, really different? Then why not name your Bettas after other animals?
- Favorite Foods – Fish and chips are probably the most commonly used names in this theme, but you could also think out of the box. Sausage and Mash, Oreo, Taco Bell, Cheese Burger, you get the gist!
- Countries – Where you’ve been! Where you’d like to go! The only limit with this one is the number of countries in the world.
