Name this Fish Contest! *Sapphira Fantail*


July 19th Update: Fishie gets a name. Tanya (Hannahshands) picked out her new name, "Sapphira Fantail." 4 judges were deadlocked. It was a very close race between Sapphira, Satinka, and Blue Gil. My Son, (5th judge,) just got home from his B'day party and gave me his two choices. It put Sapphira ahead in the lead, hands down. You all submitted such wonderful names and I want to thank you for taking the time to enter the contest. It's been fun!

**********************************************************************************
In my last post I said I would be announcing a contest to name my fish. You have to admit this cute little fishy needs a name! How do you enter? Come up with a cute or unique name and post it in this thread. On July 19th (Son's Birthday) a winner will be announced. A panel of (5) will be doing the judging.

Good luck!

The winner will receive a pair of Sea Glass earrings or pendant (your choice.)

How about "Blue Gil?" Sort of a play on words, since a bluegill is a type of fish, this guy appears to have blue gills, and Gil is kind of cute name in itself?

Perhaps Damselfish? It is meant to be worn around a damsel's neck after all. Gorgeous pendant. So elegant!

This is a fun idea, I always have trouble coming up with cute names- love that fish and I think the perfect name would be "Bubble Fish" (of course- right?) BBB

This is a lovely piece. I think things like elegant, beauty, graceful, swirls, when I look at it. So some inspired names.- Hope it’s ok to suggest more that one.
Elegant Swimmer, Flow (my favorite I think) Blue Grace or Ariel.

SATINKA is the name I choose for this beautiful little Magical Dancing Fish that is Wire Wrapped with a gorgeous Sapphire Swarovski.
"SATINKA" means Magic Dancer in Native American Indian.

I think she looks like an Esmerelda. Haha I don't know why, she just does!

Jo Ann Gallagher said...

I think her name should be "Lady Grace" because she looks so beautiful and graceful.

haha esmerelda was my first thought too.

but I like the name Sapphira Fantail.

Sapphira... a play on the montana sapphire crystal you used and fantail is a type of goldfish :)
