Fish names

I was wondering how many of you have named your fish... The best thing about a new fish is watching it interact and learning its personality. It took us about a week for us to come up with our guys' names.

Af. cichlids are:
Red Zebra - OJ aka Orenthal James
Blue Cobalt - AC aka Al Cowlings
Electric Yellow - Judge Ito

Dwarf pleco - Kato Kaelen (sp?)

As you can see... we sorta started with OJ and the rest fell into place.

Ryan

Our kids name our fish, so, with that in mind, we have...

Phil & Lil, the Ocellaris clowns
Chiquita, the Yellow Tang
Lou the Blue (Hippo Tang)
Organary - Purple Tang (no clue where that name came from)
Liberty, the Copperbanded butterfly (because the Statue of Liberty is made from copper).

OK, a couple of my co-workers (female) insisted that my fish have names. That was when I only had two fish in the tank, a green chromis (last one left of original 4 bought from Petco) and a Coral beauty bought from the LFS the kid at Petco told me about .

So as the last survivor of 4 the Green chromis obviously is a female. The LFS is owned and run by Carol and Bob, so the chromis was named Carol and the CB Angel was named Bob.

Then I got a pair of true Percs so they naturally are named Ted and Alice (showing age).

My purple firefish got named Bruno due a picture I took and showed at work.
The rest are awaiting proper names.

I have a pair of percula clowns. They are Lola (the female - who would probably hang out at the Copa Cabana) and Peanut (her male).
