439 Amazing Betta Fish Names [Male & Female]

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?

People may make up names, draw them from their ancestry, choose other people’s pet names, or even pick names from their favorite TV show actors or sports athletes.  Choosing a name for your betta is no different! Band names, music artists, and movie characters like Nemo are also popular areas for inspiration.  If you’re stuck though and can’t think of a good name, the list compiled below contains betta fish names that have been brainstormed from all sorts of areas of inspiration, just like those mentioned above.

You’ll want to settle on a betta fish name that has meaning to both you and your new buddy, so make sure you take your time and choose wisely. Names have a tendency to define us, but also latch on because of certain characteristics or habits (like nicknames for humans). If he or she is a super fast lightning swimmer you may want to name them Turbo for example. Alternatively, if you got your betta fish in the summer, maybe names like Sunshine or Sunny would be a perfect fit. It’s always great to hear from other betta owners too, so please share any names for betta fish you’ve used in the comments below, especially if it’s not in the list above. Thanks!
