What Are Your Fish Named?

dkpate's Why Me post prompted me to ask if most people name their fish, or not. Do you name your fish? If so, what are your fishes' names? Here's what my fish are named:

40 Gallon:

- Lady - fancy ryukin goldfish
- Blanche - silver molly
- Guy Noir - black velvet molly
- Pumpkin - orange balloon belly molly
- Angelo - Angelfish
- Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod - neon tetras
- Sakura and Blossom - cherry barbs
- Mary and Miette - powder blue gouramis
- Satsuma and Sundrop - sunset wag platies
- Margeaux and Marguerite - ADFs
- Gary and Rhoomba - mystery snails

10 Gallon:

- Jimmy - albino cory catfish
- Silver - silver molly
- Oreo - dalmatian molly
- Carl - ADF
- 3 lyretail guppies, not yet named
- 8 baby mollies, not yet named

2.5 Gallon:

- Kermit and Frogger - ADFs

Share your fishy names!

I dont name mine, but my wife has named a few of them. All of my platy fry are named fred. So there are alot of freds in my 55g right now. All of my multis have been named ernie. She likes to simplify things so that if you point to a fish, you cant get their names mixed up

Same here! We do know that Lady, our goldfish, is male - my son was insistent on naming the fish Lady. I was like *shrug* Okay, if you really want to . . . LOL! Some other fish that we had, but unfortunately lost, were Charles the betta, Felix and Oscar the dwarf gouramis, Erik the ADF, and Lucky the guppy (who was not so lucky in the long run )

Aww thts sad. The reason mine was named Corey Tennessee Williams (by a friend) is earlier that day in school we watched a documentary on the playwrite Tennessee Williams who wrote plays like The Glass Menagerie and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Unknowingly my friend named the same fish Corey (she thought they were different fish) so we combined the name lol. Btw you are very creative in your fish naming lol.

We did name our fish. First fantail goldfish didn't have a name as was called 'Fish'. Second goldfish was called 'Forest', as we thought he was a bit dim, the third was called Freddy, after Freddy Mercury.
But as all of these fish died we stopped naming them after that. So they are more like, big black tetra, smaller black tetra and 'the white ones', and you can't tell the Rummynoses apart so they are just 'the rummies'.

I always name my fish and have had many cool names for fish I've had in the past. Right now I have three platys and I named them after attacks from the Sailor Moon TV show. There is Moon Tiara Magic, Mercury Aqua Illusion, and Venus Love Chain. My otos are named Otto and Otta, and I'm getting a bamboo shrimp today which I planned to name Starscream or Neytiri, depending on whether it seems like a male or female to me. If I get three more fish of the same kind I want to name them after the three Magi; Gaspar, Balthazar, and Melchior
