Your Fish Got Names?
I've never been good at naming pets. My cat and chameleon were named by the people who gave them to me, but I came up with a couple names for my more outstanding fish.

Angelfish: one named Lucifer, one named Jesus (Spanish pronunciation)

Rainbow Shark: Hardy - he's a survivor through two leaking tanks and the temporary housing transfers that killed the other two fish I started with

Zebra Danios: won't hold still long enough to get a name

Male Cherry Barbs: big one - Mac; small one - Soltaire (he's kind of a loner)

Female Cherry Barbs: Pregnant looking one - Mama; other two unnamed

Pleco: Al - named after my buddy, Al and also short for Algae

Gourammis: trying to think of a cool trio to name them after

I've only named some of my fish.

My 3 Boesemanis are Moe, Larry and Curly

Chocolate Pleco - Hershey

Pearl Gourami - Pearl

Yeah, only my oldest fish have names- just Patrick the cory and Dan the CAE. Now that I have more I've stopped naming them. Although I plan on naming my puffer Taco. But he's special cuz he gets his own tank in the living room all by himself.

Jack Dempsey cichlid: Jack

5-point shark (catfish): Cartman (he's extremely lazy)

Venusta cichlid: Jeffrey (he looks like a giraffe... Jeffrey Giraffe from Toys R' Us)

Midas Blenny: Timmy (he looks kinda, umm, "challenged")

Regal Tang: Pootie Tang

Clownfish pair: Mr. and Mrs. Garrison (sex change)

I try to name my fish after characters from TV or movies, with Jack being the exception. I never force a name on one, I'll bring a fish home and after I've had him for a while, and something about him stands out, then I'll name him :D

Conger, the giraffe from Toys R Us has his name spelled as "Geoffery". :)

I dont name my fish. I give my fish nicknames on occasion, though (Shoal of Tiger Barbs=Band of Brothers, Female Betta=Baby Girl, RTBS=Boy),

conger 04-13-2008 11:37 PM

haha, nice! I'll be sure to use the correct spelling from here out. I like the Band of Brothers name for the Tiger Barbs (that was a GREAT series, btw... probably my favorite military movie/series, I'm a big fan of anything military)
