wanna help me name him?
« on: November 29, 2010, 12:09:07 PM »

I got this fish for my birthday and i still can't come up with a name i love. I take a lot for care naming them but just can not get one i like yet for him.

It is a boy
he is most aggresive in tank
kindof a bully (ok not kindof he is a bully) hes second largest fish but my largest fish is a big sweety that wouldnt hurt a fly so big blackie here has become the boss. he loves to chase the girls. hes a nipper. (thought about nipper or nipsy)
names i have tossed around
nipper
nipsy
finnley
b**ch or bas**rd  ::)lol (after watching him push my babies around)
pain in the a** lol (see a pattern here)

honestly just cant think of a good one for him

thanks for any help, lets have fun with this  Tongue Tongue

He's gorgeous!! How about naming him Captain? Wink
I feel like he needs a powerful and kind of... mature name! Cheesy

... and maybe you should do something about his nipping? >>

A time out might help Tongue fishy punishment 101 lol! Got a floating basket on hand? Maybe doing time will adjust his attitude. But such a beautiful fish (I think) deserves a better name than Spanky  Roll Eyes

Captain is a good one! And here are my suggestions:

Bandit
Brigand
Felon
Chief
Macho
Baskerville
Rochester
King
Alexander the Great (you could call him Alex for short)
Caesar
Knight


Here are some famous outlaw names:

Austrailian:
Brenden (Abbot)
Darcy (Dugan)
Elise (Mckenna)

UK:
Lee (Murray)

US:
Jesse (James)
Baby Face
Vernon (Miller)

Just a few ideas to get your brain storming  Wink

maybe Georgie Porgie like nursery rhyme

Georgie Porgie pudding and pie kissed the girls and made them cry when the boys came out to play georgie porgie ran away.

i kind of like that name. and it is my girls he picks on.

 (next time he does it he goes into timeout in the colendar) i have never had to punish a fish before but heard if you float them in a colendar they are separate but not too traumatic. used it before when had a fish who needed to be fed a diferent diet, separated them during feedings, swim bladder problem fish got peas only while in basket then came out when others finished their food.

How about 'Brutus' if he is somewhat of a brute to other tank mates. He is so beautiful and cuddly looking Wink

I like the name April suggested, Brutus  Cheesy That's a great name and seems to suit him, that or something similar to Brutus.

What kind of fish is he??

Well, if he's a ladies man, I would call him Casanova.
and if he's an alpha male, I'd name him Fluffy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy. That should put him in his place.

Hey thanks Andrea Smiley  It is difficult to name animals sometimes until you get to know their personality. I've already got a name for the girly fish I hope to find for Tailer - Lucy ♥ Who knows, maybe she will turn out to be a 'red head' like red capped goldies Wink

Haha yes I know April. I have a bird called No-name, he doesn't have no name, it is his actual name as nothing would suit him and it just stuck and somehow does suit him Smiley

I already have a name picked out for my betta when I eventually get him Smiley You should call the new fish Mrs. Tailer Tongue

Thanks all for ideas. still tossing them around. my daughter is stuck on george porgie.

He is an oranda. just some fancy breed from either china or thailand cant remember which. pretty much all my fish are imports from china, japan and thailand. if i get time in the next week i will post a picture and video thread of some of my fish.

Lmao I don't know if I should be insulted. ( kidding). I bought him for those beautiful fins but his face is kindof funny. He actually gotten sweet with the baby fish in tank very tolerant of them following him and rubbing in his tail. I think I am stuck with georgie porgie my daughters are calling him that. Oh well it fits I guess since he started out kissing the girls lol.
