What would you name a Beta Fish?

    What would you name a Beta Fish?

    My friend Curtis just got a Beta in his Environmental class today. He carried the little bugger through the entire school day, and we named him "Kyris" over chat second period, since we both had study halls. He's a small blue Beta with red running through his fins. He's cute and calm, generally speaking. And yes, its gender is male.

    So - what would YOU name a Beta?

    I said "Delta", because it's a double-pun...

    You could go with Sigma as well - or Beta-Pi...but I like Ralph...

    Alpha, gamma, omega, and the like are all pretty normal. I think my favorite of all time that I've heard is "Master". If you don't get it right away, give it a minute.

    Jarn - when I hear "Master", I think "The Master"... as in "Doctor Who"...

    I'd definitely name it Alpha. Just for added pun.

    I would name my betta Courtenay or if he were a female Franschella. Fancy names for beauty.

    Seven days ago I was in Walmart with a two year old (named Nevaeh) when we decided to purchase a small yellow Beta. Because Nevaeh was going to be the new owner of this little yellow fellow-I asked her what she would like to name him. She responded, Fish. Now, we have a little yellow Beta named Fish.

    But, if I might have named him: Fred, George, Mellow-Fellow, Bamboo...but Delta is a great idea.

    Why not an aggressive name like Rambo, killer or bear.  Place a mirror where he can see himself and watch his gills and fins 'light-up'...
