Jerit created the topic: Name My Oscar

Hey everyone, I got my first Oscar Last Saturday, and I haven't came up with a name for it yet, any suggestions??

All of the names I get, I'll put them in a hat and pull out the name, I'll let you know what the name will be, So give me some name :laugh:

Whatever name you think of, you better make it universal. You don't know if you've got a male or a female. Imagine calling your Oscar Dave or something and then one day you see it laying eggs :side:

To be honest, I've never been any good at choosing names for animals. I can't even name my own Oscars, let alone come up with other people's names. My ex girlfriend called my fish Pandora and the other one Bacchus which I thought was really good. I think you've got to be quite imaginative. I quite fancy Sampson as a name for an Oscar and maybe Delilah if it's a female. Hey, that's what I'll call mine when I know what they are.

I remember watching this cowboy film years ago and somebody asked this cowboy what his horse was called. The cowboy says "I never name anything that I have to eat one day" I wonder what Oscar taste like? :ohmy:

I named my two Oscars "Jake and Elwood" after the Blues Brothers but found out later that Elwood was really a female, so I changed her name to Elvira instead. Jake came close to being renamed "The Big Pig" but that is his nickname instead (because of his begging and eating habits)..

Need to give away one healthy 1 year old Oscar if you know of anyone interested. See the adoption thread for photos. Thanks!

I remember reading at one website about Oscars that in certain places of South America, the Oscar fish is indeed a table food. So, be careful when and if you travel to South America and order the "seafood suprise" as you may be eating a relative to the fish you keep in your aquariums. If I find the article, I'll post it here...

I think I’m going to through the name “ Dirty Harry” in the hat… That name would fit :P

One I liked from my list that we didn't choose would be FLIP. Good for a M or F, too.
