I can't keep people names straight so I usually leave the fish naming to everyone else. My assistant named quite a few. Some of the more memorable ones were The Unsinkable Molly Brown (a GIGANTIC marbled molly female), a trio of male guppies she named after the three stooges, and Jessica Alba the angelfish (odd, because its not a dark angel...). I'm sure I'm forgetting some other funny names, I'll try to remember to ask about them tomorrow.

I have only ever named my Betta, Blinky. My mom has named one of our Africans "Big Piggy" because it's the biggest one in our tank and the first to get to the food.
