I didn't used to when I was little haha, but I do now that I'm 19. Funny how that works, huh? Well, I named my ACF Freddy, but only because I had "him" (recently found out he was a she haha) for like five or six years.
I have...:
Pickle-Eyes, Uno, and Magikarp - Peppered Corydoras
Casper and Wendy - Glass Cats (adding more soon)
Leo - Four-Line Pictus Cat (the one in my avatar)
Spartacus - All of the comet goldfish I'm raising for my mom's outdoor pond
And new additions as of two days ago...
Ben and Mello - Eclipse Cats

Some of our guppies have names - Boris, Alexander (because my three year old said he was great lol), Charlotte, Finderella, Emily and Genevieve. Our Yabbies are Charlie (female but we didn't know it at the time) and Snappy Tom

I almost forgot our one little guppy fry (she got caught up in the net when we bought some females) her name is Frenchy.

If I can tell a fish apart from the rest, I name it. Some of the fish names I'm most proud of are:

Orange GloFish: Torpedo
Bi-Color Blenny: Dantrell
4 Bangai Cardinals: Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Sue
Firefish Goby: Flash (that fish can disappear into the rocks really quickly)
Green Clown Goby: Midgee
Cave Goby: Dusty
Damsels: Ruckus, Butch (Butch has turned out to be one of the most cowardly fish in the tank)
Yellow Tang: Filet

I have two tangs in QT right now, I have a policy that they don't get named until I'm sure they're going to live through acclimation, and I also like them to "earn" their names somewhat. If these two make it I have names lined up for them. For the one that ends up being the boss after they join Filet (which I think will be the Atlantic Blue Tang, if Filet ends up being in charge I'll have to rethink this), his name will be Russell, named after Russell Hantz from Survivor. The other one will be named Buzz.

OK, I used to not name my fish before I had SW with the exception that my cichlids were collectively called puppies, because of their need for attention and constant begging for food. But, not that I am in the world of SW, they seem to have all received names:

Spot & Break : Maroon Clowns
Trip : Mandarin
Beaker : Yellow Watchman Goby
Chuck Norris : Citron Goby (Brown Morph)
PJ : Wait for it....... Pajama Cardinal

Not too original, I know.
