Many people have their own pet fish at home and are looking for the perfect name. But what is the best way to find a good one? Do you just go with your gut instinct? Would that be enough? What about naming your pet fish after someone or something from an outside source such as a celebrity, movie character, or cartoon series? Let’s look at 12 tips to help you identify the best names for your pet fish!
Tips for Naming your Pet Fish:
-Ask friends and family for suggestions. They might know of a name that would be perfect!
-Go to the pet store or ask an employee for ideas. You never know what they might say!
-Use a couple letters from their color – like “Saffron” if it’s orange, or “Jade” if is green. Or use colors in combinations you enjoy; purple/blue, etc. Just make sure to call them by one of those names most often so they don’t get mixed up with other pets in the house when answering to any commands you give them!
-Choose something descriptive about their personality with words such as ‘happy,’ ‘silly,’ ‘friendly’ etc.!
-Use a word that reflects the number of fish you have (“Milli” for one, “Baldwin” for two). It’s fun to choose names with different meanings depending on how many pets they live with in your home!
-Find out what gender your pet is and give them a name related to it (i.e., “Cherry” if female) or something relating to their personality traits. Blueberry would be great for an adventurous male fish while Strawberry might suit a more timid female!
It can also help distinguish which pet is yours from others in the house who may have similar sounding names due to shared colors or markings as well as giving them a personality!
-If your fish has more than one color, try to name it after the dominant color and then their second most common shade or pattern. This will help you identify which pet is yours if they are in a group of multiples with similar markings as well as giving them some individuality. For example “Mango” would be orange with blue spots while “Cranberry” might have black stripes on a red background.
-Choose an animal that sounds like your favorite type of fish such as naming all goldfish after Egyptian gods (i.e., Ra, Isis). There’s no limit here so feel free to get creative!
Baldwin: A name for multiple pet fishes who may be in a group.
-Baldwin is the name of one pet fish or tank who may not have any distinguishing features that would make them stand out from their tank mates but they are still deserving of being named and recognized as an individual! Baldwin could also describe a group of fishes all with similar markings such as “Mango” (orange, blue spots) and “Cranberry” (black stripes on red).

Baldwin: A name for multiple pet fishes who may be in a group or have similar markings – Mango and Cranberry.
Picking names with meanings: After the death of their beloved cat, “Mr. Bigglesworth” at age 18 months from kidney failure, Lisa had been looking for another pet but couldn’t find just one perfect kitty companion..so she got three! The cats were named Mr. Peeblesworths II through V because they’re his great-great-grandkids, and they’re so worth it!
Naming your pet after someone: When the dog is being named there’s a good chance that you might want to name them after someone who has passed away. However, we don’t recommend naming them “dead dog” or “death.” Some other names not to use include “Death Eater,” Voldemort,’ ‘Murderer’, etc.

Picking up on trends in celebrity baby names: Prince William and Kate Middleton had their second child this year (2018). They chose an old English name of Louis Arthur Charles for the prince which was first popular in 1920s England. But from 2019 the name will rank the most popular in the United States.
Choosing a first pet fish: This is usually an easier decision than naming your pets, but it’s important to pick out one that you both like and does well with other fishes. If we’re going for hard-and-fast rules here, some good choices might be Killifish or Guppy because they are small and can keep company with larger species without undue stress on either side of the tank.

Naming your second pet fish: It may not make sense at first glance why someone would want to give their next pet two names when they already have one–but there are reasons!
One is to acknowledge that pet fish names have a lot of power and the other is because it’s often not easy to pick just one.
When you name your second, keep in mind that they can be called upon together or separately depending on how many times you want them included in conversation. If we’re going for hard-and-fast rules here, some good choices might be Goldfish or Angel Fish; both are beautiful species with long histories of popularity as pets!
So what do I think? The best way to go about naming your next aquarium friend would probably involve picking out two fishes who compliment each other well- maybe try Guppy and Killifish again–then deciding which will get the first slot
-Naming your pet fish is an important decision. It’s something that will be with the animal for its entire life and you want it to have a name they can call their own, not one given by someone else who might change their mind or get bored of it soon enough
-There are 12 sins in naming your pets, from picking cute names because they’re easy to pronounce (sin number two) to falling into pitfalls like using only vowels (sin five), just know which ones so you don’t make any mistakes!
Here are some tips for avoiding these twelve sins:
-First off, avoid giving your pet fish a common human name unless absolutely necessary. You don’t think humans would survive if everyone named their kids the same name, and it’s even worse for fish.
-Second, try to avoid names with only vowels or consonants: this will make your pet seem like an oddity rather than a unique individual
-Third, don’t give your pets any generic animal names that can be applied to many different species of critters; just think of all those people who have dogs named Spot
-Fourth, never use anything but numbers if you’re going for alphabetical order. It might not sound as personal at first blush because everyone has a number in their address book nowadays anyway, but they’ll appreciate how important they are when yours is always spoken out loud!
-Fifth sin? Using common words such as “fishy” or “swimmy.” Fish are not fishy, and what does it even mean to be swimmy? -Sixth sin is using someone else’s name. If you have a favorite celebrity who just so happened to share their own pet’s name in some media coverage, think about this: do you really want your little guy being confused with another famous cat from the tabloids? -Seventh sin of naming pets after food items! Just like how we’re all getting sick of people giving themselves cutesie names that sound like they should come wrapped up for Christmas morning breakfast (e.g., Apple), don’t give an animal something as common as its next meal It will only make
