Name that fiiiiish!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Name that fiiiiish!

Postby oldtoby » Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:27 pm

So, after a few weeks spent decorating my brand new fish tank. finishing off with a miniature of my old ship laying on the bottom :happydance: (oh you have no idea how amused i am by that) 'Im going to finally get a fish to put in the tank. ( i know..what a concept)

So now it is time to solicit possible names for my aquarian companion from the masses. I have a name i like but i wanna hear what y'all can come up with. All names, male, female, other, and Klingon will be cnsidered. And, if i chose YOUR name, I promise the winner will be lauded* across the lands and under the sea, songs will be sung, kazoos will be played, floors will be mopped, and a years supply of chewing gum, a fake autographed pic of Dory, and a hot date with Aquaman arranged! (Aquaman promised will be the lame blonde from Superfriends and not the dark haired dude from Stargate)
shiping and handling not included.

so wadda youse guys got?

Could I get a hot date with Loki instead? =:) =:)

(the Loki from the Marvel movies, [as brilliantly played by Tom Hiddleston] not the one from the comic books.)

One possibility... what was the name of the captain of your ship??? :D

Names for fish? You definately need an Admiral Ackbar in there.

I'm with Ladykat on the Loki prize! *sigh* Tom Hiddleson is lovely. As is Jason Momoa (the proper Aquaman and Stargate hottie) I may get to meet him next week at Comic Con. For reals!

If it's a female betta...

B'Etor
B'Etor and her sister Lursa, of the House of Duras, were responsible for starting the Klingon Civil War in 2368. Her name is written be'etor in Klingon.

B'Etor, Lursa and their brother Duras were children of Ja'rod. They supported Duras's son Toral for Chancellor in opposition to Gowron. When Gowron was named Chancellor, they arranged with the Romulans in a failed attempt to break the Klingon-Federation alliance. When their deal with the Romulans was revealed, support for the House of Duras crumbled and they embarked in several other schemes to regain their power. B'Etor and Lursa were killed in a battle with the USS Enterprise-D.

Betta is a fighting fish. Name it Chuck, as in Norris.

Rocky

Muhammad (Ali)

Manny (Pacquaio)

Hulk

If you want to be humorous (and more honest with the fish):

Chips

Sushi (if you get a second fish, name it Sashimi).

Fillet.
"...Their aim in war with Germany is nothing more, nothing less than extermination of Hitlerism... There is absolutely no justification for this kind of war. The ideology of Hitlerism, just like any other ideological system, can be accepted or rejected, this is a matter of political views. But everyone grasps, that an ideology can not be exterminated by force, must not be finished off with a war.” - Vyacheslav Molotov, ""On the Foreign Policy of the Soviet Union", 31 October 1939

Well as it turns out you are all losers, and thus I keep the prize money myself and im afraid I cant validate parking.
