Children naming fish

I was discussing today how my nine year old daughter names all of our fish herself, and how much it makes me laugh when she does. Just wondering if anyone else has kids that name your fish & would love to hear some of the funny names they came up with.
I think my favorite was an orange glofish that she named "Orange Julius Caesar Salad"

Other favorites were:

A guppy named Molly
A molly named Guppy
A cory name Sucka
Mystery snail named Gary
a pair of Sunset Platys named Fred & George Weasley

Aw those are cute names.

I bought a betta for my cousin's four year old daughter and she named it Marilyn Manson since he is scary like me and wears a lot of make up. I was surprised she even knew who he was.

I think children's names are the best. My friend's son named their betta Fluffy. That cracked me up. He was three, I believe.

LOL Fluffy! I love it!

Yeah, Marilyn Manson isn't your typical icon for a 4 year old! I could definitely see a betta resembling him though
