wow! so many funky names! ive had a few bettas over the years since my boyfriend and i got together
chocolate=male
Aoi=male=of course as someone noted earlier, its japanese for blue! he was the most brilliant blue ever! very shiny and very well mannered!
tenchi=which is japanese for heaven and earth, i found this poor fellow in teh sunday market in a very very small plastic container with low amounts of water, i feel sooo sorry for all the fish there!! i bought him…and because he was mistreated, he is shortsighted and is scared and angered easily, i love him to bits and because of that, his name is tenchi (he mustve survived bad times) and he is my heaven and earth…he is living longer than my other fish! what a true fighter!
sasame=my boyfriend and i love anime (japanese anime) and since we got sasame a short while after tenchi, we named her after a character that liked tenchi in an anime! she was very wild mannered but very lovely to nibble food off ur fingers
and i got two more, yet to be named hence i came across this site for ideas!
thanx its a great site!!

The Siamese Fighting Fish was described by Regan in 1910. This species is found in southeast Asia from the Lower Mekong Basin: Malayan peninsula, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. It occurs from the Mae Khlong to Chao Phraya basins, waters of the eastern slope of the Cardamom mountains, and from the Isthmus of Kra. Its natural range is Thailand, but in view of its popularity over the last 100 years it is difficult to ascertain its exact original range as it is now found living in the wild in many countries. The genus name "Betta" was taken from the Javanese name "Wuder Bettah". This species is also called by the common name Betta, especially in the United States. Other common names include Split-Tailed Betta and Libby Betta. Betta Fish Species name: Betta splendens Synonym: None Common Names: Siamese fighting fish Family: Osphronemidae Order: ...

The fighting fish’s wild ancestors lived solitary lives in rice paddies and small fresh water streams of Thailand / Siam (not Japan, China – as some names would suggest). They were a dull brown or greeny color and were a carnivorous fish that would feed on tiny crustaceans, insect eggs and larvae. Fighting was always in their genes but they would generally only spar for a few minutes until one betta gave up and retreated.First-time owners and long-time enthusiasts love choosing betta fish names that are fun, cute, and unique. In captivity and through selective breeding practices, betta fish (siamese fighting fish) have become known for their unique colors and fins. Pair this with their awesome personalities and interactions with their owners, and that invokes our natural instinct to want to give them a meaningful name. So where do you start?There are many different types of betta fish. Betta fish may sometimes be referred to by their scientific name which is the Betta Splendens. They are also called as siamese fighting fish. As a result of breeding by experts, they have taken an extensive range of colors, fin types and patterns. There exist many different betta fish names depending on the color, pattern and fin types. It is hard to name all betta fish types here as it makes a very long list. We will discuss the most important types of betta fish and the betta fish names.Love the names I have 2 female Betta fish Ruby who is red and pink also Sapphire who is blue and they are friends because they never fight each other.
