I named my fish after lesser known gods/goddesses hoping that like they're namesake they're long-lived. :)

Iris- Calico Oranda (Greek goddess of rainbows)

Jarilo- Red/White Ryukin (Slavic god of harvest)

Pamona- Sakura Lionhead (Greek Goddess of harvest/apples)

Emesh- Calico Telescope broadtail (Sumerian god of vegetation/summer)

Forseti- Chocolate pompom Telescope (Norse god of justice and peace) Although named after a male god, she's female.

Nike- White/red Crowned pearl (Greek goddess of victory)

My first pair of goldfish were named Arthur and Ford.

When Ford died, I got another goldfish named Molly and I had four snails named Fred, George, Ron, and Ginny.

My current two fish are Peanut and Filbert. I had, but recently lost, a fish named (al)Mo(nd).

My bettas are the only fish I have not named with other fish/snails. My betta of years ago was named Fishfish, and my current betta is Roland Deschain, gunslinger of the line of Eld.

Arthur and Ford! Please tell me that that's a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy reference!

Mine are:

Female black moor: Dexy. She used to be just Dexter, but he turned out to be a she :rofl

Golden fantail: Klaus. Klaus had two other names at one point. Nemo is what my niece called him, then my sister renamed him Goldie, then my boyfriend finally named him Klaus (from american dad).

hahahah I had JUST named my fish a few hours ago, before I saw the thread. I've had my fish since summer.

Honeysuckle Rose - Orange oranda, queen of the group

Cloud Castle - Red/white ryukin, sweet but bit of a shy idiot

Festival - Orange fantail, very active and always begging

You Rascal - Orange/white ryukin, very naughty

My newest white oranda is currently unnamed, but I will name him after I observe his personality.

All of the names came from songs by jazz musician Django Reinhardt.

Mine are

Spot, Lisa & Bart (fantails)

I HAD 2 bristlenose plecos in my tank named AL & G (algae heh) but I was hoping they would be male/female when I bought them as babies - not so, both males & G won the territory battle

The new babies are Grumpy (he makes a grumpy face) AKA Mr Unsociable, and Arwen (calico ryukins)

Tiger Barbs are just TOO much alike! I have 14-16 (You really can't count them! LOL) Most are regular colored the rest are albino. Some are a little bigger than others but they are ALWAYS shifting positions or zipping around. Even when they are hanging out resting it's still next to impossible tell which is which!!

But they are a fun bunch!!! I really enjoy their antics!

Ryukin: Thor

Comet: Remmy

I'm also considering the name Nine for a bristlenose pleco when I upgrade the fish to a 55gal in the future, in honor of Doctor Who. :D

Google - Telescope Eye Goldfish - he was one of my first three, I'm obsessed with teles and I from the moment I started on goldies I wanted one named Google XD

Tiger - Comet - When I got him he was black and orange, reminded me of a tiger

Abraham - Black Moor - My dad named him - after the fish in that one show...the name escapes me right now

Cali - Calico Fantail - Calico, Cali...

Honey - Telescope Eye - She just looked like a little Honey!

Bamboo - "Panda" Moor - He had brilliant Panda markings when I got him, Pandas eat Bamboo... he is all white now but I still think it suits him.

Some of my old Goldfish

Rusty - Shubunkin - He was a browny gold blotchy colour, reminded me of Rust!

Treasure - Comet - She was bright Yellow, Like Gold coins in a treasure chest in a cartoon

Shaun, 1 and 2 - Fantail and Tele - I told my supervisor at work I was going to name a goldfish after him ... and did

Jewel - Shubinkin - She was orange with brown specks and looked very jewel like

Dally - Shubunkin - He was white with black spots when I got him - a dalmatian!

Twotone - Fantail - She was a beautiful fantail, top half orange, bottom half white. I still miss her so much. She was my very first :(

Dash - Shubunkin - He was super super super fast

My other fish...

Danios - Lazarus (Giant Danio) (he is also called Evil, Creature, Meanie, greedy, neon, glowy and little fish)

Trio - Zebra Danio - It has 3 stripes? And I keep forgetting what I actually named it

I had other Danios too, 4 of them named Emma, but the goldies ate them :P (I was under the misinformation that danios were a good match for goldies), one named Stripes, one named Zip and I can't remember the others.

And Bettas - I've had Saffy, Freckle, Dusk and Now I have Shaun the Third XD
