wow! so many funky names! ive had a few bettas over the years since my boyfriend and i got together
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!!
