So do you guys give names to your fish?

Mine are Shakespeare, Sherlock, Schilling (go Red Sox!), Mickey and Minnie. Am I the only one who's crazy?

Oh yea got to have names!! My wife and daughter make most of the naming decisions, thus the use of girly names are dominant!

Yellow Tail Damsel - Little Princess
Tomato Clown - May
Perc. Clown - Nemo
Perc. Clown - Coral
White Cheek Tang - Sparticus (I named that one)
Royal Gramma - Gurgle
Engineer Goby - Peppy

All inverts have names as well!!

Totally we name our fish. Squish and Smudge the clowns, Macaroni the Gourami (recently RIP, sad to say), The Tetras (too hard to tell apart), Carrot the black moor and Orangehead the Oranda. The apple snail doesn't have a name.
