I just bought a couple new fish. I bought a goldfish, betta, and a Cory catfish. I need really unique names for them because I really like crazy names. I was thinking for the betta that I could use a name from a Japanese fighter or wrestler. For the goldfish I might keep it pretty simple. I could use some ideas if you guys are interested in helping me.
I like the idea of your Japanese fighter. Maybe use an old classic fighter that is from the 70s or 80s now that is funny. I used to have some betta fish and I named them names from Mortal Kombat series. If you know what that is. I also have heard of people using usernames from the video game Tekken. I wasn’t a huge fan of that game but I so know some of the characters.
I think its great how much creativity your using for the names. Goldfish are always hard to give names because everyone and their cousin had the perfect goldfish name at one point. And I think I have used “Goldy” a couple too many times. The video game ones are great ideas though because they even have an edge like the fighter fish does. I had no idea the popularity of fighter fish until I saw the community for them.
I love naming goldfish because they are easy to name cause their names can be goofy and you don’t have to be super serious about it. “Ruff Ruff or Jizz Jazz” I like stupid little two word phrases that sound really catchy together. I know “bam bam” is a pretty popular one too. I guess the sky is your limit to what you will call your fish haha.
If you look up some guides in names for Bettas there will be some huge lists in which you can look at too. That’s what I did because I’m not that unique when it comes to this type of thing. Or else I will ask my wife or daughter because when a guy is in charge of this thing.. it turns out bad. I named our dog Billy and that was enough work for me.
I love naming fish because they are so easy to name. You can use super unique funny names. I really like the celebrity alike names. I wanna tell you a super clever one I just thought of but I can’t or else everyone will steal it. I have never had a big tank to have to name like 30 fish though. I always wondered if people name a fish that there is like 20 of the same species of. Like would you name every Molly fish if you had like 30 of them? I don’t think I would be able to depict which ones were which.
Hey, us guys can name animals too! Don’t go talking about us guys being bad at that. I think I’m personally really good at. For some reason, I can look at an animal and just know what name it should be. Mate that’s abnormal for a guy though… not really sure.
