Wow lovely betta, delta? Really like the finage markings/color. I'd want to give a wave/tsunami/ocean type name with those colors, something like celestial/galaxy.. but those tend to sound more feminine.

Your betta looks very beautiful flared, the white spots over his eyes made me chuckle, remind me of old man bushy eyebrows.
