60 Most Cute, Popular Fish Names




Hanging Fish

First, let’s jump into which types of cute names exist particularly when it comes to hanging or “betta” fish (plural).

The main idea behind these cute names is that they are cute, cuddly, and cute. Examples include:

  • Fluffy Butt
  • Cutie Pie
  • Honey Bunches
  • Jelly Bean
  • Guppies

When it comes to cute names for guppies there is a huge range of cute names that exist but some of the cutest and most popular ones include:

  • Goldie
  • Bubbles
  • Blueberry Pie

Out of these three cute names Goldie and Bubbles seem to be quite more popular than Blueberry Pie (which is still cute nonetheless) but if you want something even shorter then go with either “Gold” or “Bubz/Bubzypoo”.

The last thing you might want to take into consideration when giving cute names to your guppies is not only what sounds right but also what they look like (for instance cute guppies named Goldie, Bubbles, and Blueberry could all look very cute but giving one cute name while naming the other cute fish something like “Fred” wouldn’t blend in).


One of the cutest types of cute names when it comes to fish is cute cuddly animal-themed cute names because let’s face it; cute animals are cute.

Cute rainbows (plural) don’t do much besides sleeping, eating, and swimming so they make great subjects for sweet-sounding cute names like:

  • Honey Bunny
  • Aurora Borealis
  • Twilight

However, these cute fish names should only be used if you or your rainbowfish really love cuddly cute animals/things (and not everyone does).


When it comes to cute names for tetras the most popular cute names include:

  • Cubes
  • Trixie
  • Chunkers
  • Mini Mouse

Cubes, Trixie, and Chunkers are cute names that would work for cute fish of any color but “Mini Mouse” is a cute name that would only work if your fish really looks like an actual mini mouse (i.e small black dot on the head).

When choosing cute tetra names you might want to take note of their colors as well especially when it comes to cute names like Goldie because although both Goldfish and Tetras are often orange not all tetras are.

Lastly, if you’re looking for something more cuddly cute names for cute tetras include the cute cuddly cute animal-themed cute names mentioned in the rainbowfish section.


When it comes to cute catfish or any cute fish name it’s important to know what you want your cute fish to be called because there are many types of “cute” cuts but some are just not cute enough for others.

Some examples include

  • Cuttlebug-
  • Cookie Monster
  • Dumpling

As you can see not all of them are suitable for every type of cute fish so depending on the type of cutie you have in mind take note of whether their cute name fits.

Other cuties might actually go well with another type of cute names like “Cookie” which could be cute for cute fish with cute brown stripes or cute dots.


When it comes to cute names for cute tangs one of the most popular cute names include:

  • Sunshine
  • Pinky Pie

The only reason why these are some of the cutest cute fish names out there is that they’re known to be naturally cute looking fish (especially pinky), which doesn’t mean that you won’t find other types of cute looking fish though.
