How many of yall name your fish?

I don't name any of mine, although my sister named my newest male betta "Sam" on my behalf. It's not that I don't notice the different personalities, I just don't care to name them.

Not everyone names their fish! It depends on what your preference is.

I name them if I can think of a good name for them. I have an eel named Fez and I named one of my rainbows Frankie. The others are nameless

I don't name my fish. I just don't really feel the need to name them lol. But I also don't think there's any reason not to do it, if you want to.

I name my fish before I even get them into the tanks, lol. I always go with really serious names because it's such a hilarious contrast to the goofy personalities of my goldies.

My 5 year old names my fish, we have a bn pleco (om nom) and I don't remember the names of the others (something pertaining to chuck, bob, I don't remember) and we have a platy named Martha named by HN1, he said she looks like a Martha and it just kind of stuck with her lol

I name some fish, not others. Bettas tend to get names. I had one named Dimitri when I was a kid, my latest Bettas were Dante and Mr. Pink. I had a girl betta named Belladonna a few years back, along with two males named Foxglove and Hemlock. None of the fish I have now have names, though. I have thought of some possibilities for my pufferfish, but nothing has stuck. I sometimes count them off as Ein, Zwei, and Drei though when I'm checking on them. The smallest one has been nicknamed Derpy Fish by my roomate, though. He is just a little more clumsy than the other two.
