The Best Funny Fish Names
Wondering how to go about choosing the right funny fish name for your fishy friend? Choosing a name for any pet is exciting, but it is also a part of the bonding experience.
While not all pet owners take fish ownership as seriously as dog or cat ownership, more and more studies reveal just how unique our fishy companions can be when given the time and attention.
Does that mean that your fish can learn his name? Not necessarily. There are many factors that play a part in whether you can train a pet to do certain things, like learn his name for instance.
And along with many other variables, your pet fish hears differently than his land-walking counterparts.
What About Short Memories?
Still, despite a common misconception, fish do have decent memories and can become used to repetition.
If you feed your fish at the same time every day, for example, you may notice that he or she comes out of the little water cave to greet you in the spot you typically drop food.
What a funny little guy or gal! So, what are some of the best funny fish names for your companion?

Fun Facts About Fish
Fish make up half of the nearly 62,000 types of vertebrates on planet earth. While these watery friends of ours are some of the world’s most popular pets, many people still know very little about them.
We know fish are pretty and are fun to watch, but new studies are also revealing a lot about the inner workings of our fish friends’ brains!
Some research suggests fish have long-term memory, are able to recognize one another, and even have the ability to use tools!
Do Fish Love Their Families?
There have also been studies done that show that fish are family oriented. One study found that rainbow fish prefer to hang out with relatives over other rainbow fish with no relation.
And who were their favorite fishy friends? Why their full-blooded siblings of course! How is that for adorable?
