There are 248 possible names for your pet fish.

Goldfish swimming in a fishbowl.

Building and populating your aquarium might come to an end with the naming of your fish. Fish, unlike dogs, are unlikely to respond to their names. Instead of utilizing the name you give your fish, you'll have to tap the glass to summon them. Humans have had an insatiable need to name things since Adam in the biblical Garden of Eden.

This list is compiled from aquarium owners' names for their fish. Many of these names are puns or are inspired by characters from novels, films, or video games. They can also be a play on the fish's appearance, including its colors, patterns, eyes, tail, and other features.

You may also look up the for your fish and use it to help you come up with a name for it. Carassius auratus, for example, is goldish. One might be referred to as Cara. Angelfish, also known as Pterophyllum scalare, might be named Terry, Phil, or PS.

Keep in mind that fish have a limited lifespan. If you name your fish after a loved one, you could be in for some heartbreak when it dies. You may have to continually coming up with new names if you don't recycle names. Your aquatic pals will now have distinct identities, whether you have a freshwater or saltwater aquarium.
