I name mine. I can't help it. I have been doing this for years, but I still name them.

Late to this thread, but cute topic.

We name our fish, we have a five year old - like its not going to happen!

We had guppies and they all had names (RIP fishies). We have one guppy left: Stuart. She is a female guppy but my little girl is into Minions at the moment. Bob died today; she was also a girl. She gave us 10 surviving fry. Not naming them til their colours come through though (and if they survive, currently 3 weeks old).

We also have four pygmy corydoras that have outlived all the guppies, and were part of the first purchase of stock. The Fab Four, otherwise known as Corey (Feldman), Cory (Haim), Dora and Dora. I think one is definitely a girl.

Now we have four platys: Mickey (Mouse) and his girlfriends Dots, Cheetah and Goldie.

Hope they live longer than the guppies!

My GBR Steven is my pride and joy with the puffers Sharon and Richard being the runner ups! I never named my cory's just because they all looked the same. Same with shrimp.

Though I can't tell all of them apart I do have names for all of them.

Two schools of fish, the law school and the religious school.
I named my 9 Harlequin Rasboras after members of the Supreme Court. 7 Cardinal Tetras are named after the 7 deadly sins (I call them the seven deadly FINS ).

Male guppy: Ru Paul

Purple Mystery Snail: Prince

White Mystery Snail: Gandalf

My cheesy sense of humor and nerdiness get the better of me when I name fish.
