I haven't named any of my fish yet, but the last time I went on a naming binge for something I used Shakespeare characters: Emilia. Benvolio. Celia. Mercutio. Romeo... Mercutio, now that's the best name ever. 8)
haha... all my animals have people names... the cats are sophie, ernest, and scarlett... billy the dog... jack the horse... only a few of the fish have names... mike, delilah, amy, priscilla, dave, harvey, lucy, alfred :P
personally, I really appreciated the first post with the suggestion to name fish after stars.
I feel uncomfortable naming animals after people for some reason.
Still need to name most of my fish myself.
So far I have Pirate the angel (he has a birth defect - no eye), cory - Elgatta (cat in Spanish - he/she has them long whiskers), Juicy the Rainbow Shark, Kapoochi Boo (don't ask me what it means) the pleco, Robo the moon :)
Everyone in my family has a task to name a fish - makes it easier.
