Help Bonsaii Name Her Fish!

Ciao, everyone! Bon here, with some happy news for y'all! I've recently netted a new addition to the aquarium! Say hello to this lovely Dragonscale Betta!
He's sleeping~! Fish have no eyelids, which is why his eyes seem open.
I've thought and thought, yet I can't think of a clever enough name for this little fellow! 
And that's when Genius Bon struck.
What if YOU jammers helped me name my fish?!

 Awesome, right?
This little fishie is a silvery-brown Dragonscale Betta with crazy long fins. He's a..well, he. He likes to have staring contests. I have yet to win one.

Did you know that Bettas are called "Siamese Fighting Fish" due to their aggressive tendencies? This unnamed guy has a whole tank to himself, because he'd wrestle with my other fish! Betta fish are smart, for fishes. They can be taught to swim through hoops, and ring bells for food! Crazy stuff, right?!

Comment your name suggestions below! I'll decide the final name May 7th. The clock's ticking!

  2. wow he's so cute!!


    I'm not good with names, but I like to name things after stars or mythological figures.


    maybe since he's a dragonscale, you could name him after a dragon? for instance, ryuu, neak, or balaur. or maybe a star in the draco constellation? eltanin, edasich, or thuban?

  20. When I opened the blog I saw the fish and I'm like OMG IT'S A BETTA FISH!!!!! I had one before, they are really cute but aggressive if you put 2 together. Sometimes they see their own reflection in the glass and flare up their fins! LOL. Maybe you could name him Murray, it means Lord of the Sea in a language I don't remember xD
    Goodluck :D


    Wow that was enthusiastic comment, xD I love fish and anything from or at the sea :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. HEY GUYS!
    Well basically, 2 posts today, since I was waiting up to teatime yesterday for a post o3o


    Okay, about your fish.....?


    If he's a Siamese fighting fish then how about King of Siam? ^-^
    Or something...


    Or just an epic name like Dud

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great! Dragon is really fitting!
    We have 2 fish named Comet along with a few more, however lots get eaten by seagulls or maybe nabbed by our cat Mobo so probably we are gonna lose them soon :( Lots of our fish I can't remember their names but some were Goldie (before they got pinched) and basically there were 4 fish when we arrived at the house so I named them #1 #2 #3 and #4

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like Drake because it reminds me of ducks, which remind me of water and fish,
    Draco is Latin for dragon so I like those as well
    Bon Bon I think ^,^

    ReplyDelete
  29. BONBON would be great as he's yours!


    And I love all the Draco / Dragon / Drake-related suggestions.


    Also if someone wins then maybe add something for them to the name? If for example, Snowyclaw won for saying FIGHTER then you could name it SNOWYCLAW THE FIGHTER or something, or FIGHTER SNOWY, or something like that!


    *That was an example only and I don't think it should be named Fighter but all in all it's your fish, dude

    ReplyDelete
  30. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL SUGGESTIONS <3


    So thoughtful!
    And your names - especially Peacock, Dagger and Emperor - are such bright and powerful names <3 And "Thresh" like "Thrash" okay I think it should be "Thrash" XDD

    ReplyDelete
  116. 2 things.
    1. What you were saying was a PICTURE.
    2. The post said the fish was silvery-brown.

    ReplyDelete
  117. If any of you guys are ever going to get a betta fish, just remember this:
    Never ever put the betta fish in a tank with another fish. The betta fish will attack the other fish.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Maybe you could name it after a famous Jammer. Or Charlie Brown, just because. Or any character from Peanuts.

    ReplyDelete
  119. If you think you suck at naming fish, you don't. My two goldfish are named Ike and Phineas, and we can't even tell them apart anymore because they both turned gray. We used to have Spike and Ferb, but they both died on the same day. But we couldn't find Ferb, so we think Spike ate Ferb and then died. After all, Ferb was actually a tetra fish, not a goldfish.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Pretty fish :o
    You can name it after an Alpha, or any kind of name in Jamaa XD
