Name That Fish

Thought I would post something lighthearted for today.

I'm getting new fish today and need name suggestions. In the past I have had Horton, Thing one & Thing two. The next set was Eenie, Meenie, Miney & Moe. I am probably getting 4 new fish. Some ideas in my head are Alpha, Omega, Beta & Phi or Red Fish, Blue Fish, One Fish, Two Fish. Any suggestions?

Eenie, Meenie, Miney & Moe (Miney is hiding behind Moe)

you could always use the hilarity of Hebrew.

the word for fish in Hebrew is pronounced Dog (spelled dag, but pronounced dog).

a friend did this after her brain tumor surgery. everyone thought she'd gone nutz, esp because she would giggle after calling the fish Dog. then one day a Jewish friend came by to visit and was amazed at her knowing the word for fish and asked if she learned Hebrew while recuperating from her surgery. lol. no, just messing with everyone else, she replied.

Hi Alli,
My name is Liz and I have been reading your blog from time to time. I am so sorry to hear that you have un-welcomed thoughts when you are trying to sleep, I understand those and it's difficult sometimes to keep them at bay. I hope you are feeling better now and the anticipation of your new fish is giving you some small joy to fucus on. I would name them Chip and Dale if you are still looking for suggestions.
That said, since your blog is a great resource for someone going through cancer I wanted to reach out to you to see if you were interested in a new online social support network (that I am the community manager of!) called I Had Cancer. It is a new and free social support network focused on connecting people based on experiences with cancer so that they can easily communicate with one another and share information. I would love to tell you more if you are interested, so please let me know! Because I was so struck by your writing I would love to send you an early-access pass with extra invites for others you may know going through this journey.

Either way, thank you so much for your writing. Take care and best regards.
if anyone else is reading this and would like more information please email me.
