What's your puffer's name?

Post by Jayhawk »

Well, my wife, being the comedian that she is, has renamed my Figure 8 (formerly known as Dougal). Now, he's named Hoover (which I love since he's like a little snail vacuum - which was her observation). :lol:

So, what have you named your puffers?

You know, I rarely name any of my fish. I have a betta named Bubba because he is so aggressive and stupid, a big goldie named Big Mama since she is so incredibly fat.. Out of the 70 or so fish I own, that's it hehe.

The puffers are generally "puffer dude" for the SAP, "little girl" for the smallest of the dwarves, and the other two dwarves are "big girl" and "little man". I guess that's the closest I come to names for them hehehe.

My first figure eights were named HRPuffersnStuff (RIP) and Snufflepufflegus.
Soon after I got a GSP and her name is just, well, GSP. Since then I have acquired figure eights Khumari, Bob and Big Boy and another GSP named Polka.

My Puffers: Two Fig8s

Post by TheSmJ »

I named my two Fig8s Puffkins and Speckles (so named because he had terrible ich when I got him).

I have 6 DPs, but they're all called "little puffs", because they're all to small and move to quickly to tell apart.

My F8s are called Mags, after a friend, although she's also unofficially called Rouble.
The best bit was when gay friend Robert met his underwater namesake - who had a bit of a gut at the time.

Heh heh!

I wouldn't normally name my fish, but my little sister enjoys naming any animal, and she very astutedly (is that a word?) pointed out that my one DP in particular has a potbelly and that he is, indeed, a pufferfish, and thus the name "Potpuffer" was born from her mind. Of course, the implications of the term are those which a seven year old is oblivious to; however, I proceeded to name the other two DPs "Crackwhore" and "Junkie". I want to give the brigs snail in there (as well as the 10 others on their way) a french name, but I have yet to look up a list.

My GSP doesn't have a name yet, but I am thinking Wilbur because he IS a pig.
