"Big Blue".

The Giants won the Superbowl and they are nicknamed "Big Blue" so that's what came to my mind when I saw this.

Tracey said...

His name is totally Frankie. With a heavy New York Italian accent....

Nigel....he has that stiff upper lip goin' on...

Qtpies7 said...

I say you should name him Charlie. He looks like a Charlie. And he looks like a boy, way too ugly to be a girl, lol.

Irishcoda said...

BLUE MAN GROUPER!

Patrick Belardo said...

Pamela said...

He looks like a Grandpa! Maybe Papa or something. LOL - Happy WW!

common mom said...

@Diane - Blue Man Grouper - HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I love it!

Great shot :-)

Name - Pungo - "large sea fish"

Tina said...

My nephew (3) would probably say "it's a burp-head"!
Cool picture!

Happy WW, Tina

Eve said...

His name is Herbert. You can tell just by looking at him. Whatever you call him I like him better than my snow today.

lisa marie said...

Scary! But I guess that would be a good name howabout Terminator? Even if he's meek and mild it would cause the little fish to leave him alone.

David said...

name it after my "winter blues"
would ya?

LceeL said...

George. His name is George. And all of his fishy kids are named George, too. There's hundreds of 'em. and they all love being named George, after their daddy, who they secretly call Big George, only so they know who they're talking about.

Bobbie said...

Hi Carmi - I think his name should be Big Daddy. He looks like he's already eaten all the small fish in that small pond, so maybe he's saying, "Okay, who's next?" (He'd probably like to swim over to my blog, where I'm sure he'd feel right at home.)

Childlife said...

That's one big fish - Love the perspective you got on the shot too!

Looks like a Gronk to me. We had a pet arowana when I was a kid named Gronk. This one reminds me of him... I think it's the expression.

Sandy C. said...

That is one big fish! I've had a few fish in recent years..but my favorite name thus far has been- Sushi! hehe :)

MamaGeek said...

Great shot. It's defintely saying "What, is my butt too big?"

:)

JC said...

Wonderful shot... I think his name is Tom Thumb.

gekke mum said...

Gus.. like the big chubby mouse in Cinderella

Diana said...

That IS one big fish!

Detroit said...

Looks like Grouper...they can get hugongous.

Detroit said...

Oh! I forgot a caption, how 'bout:

How YOU doooin'?
(notice how his eyes are looking up at something? I love it)

kenju said...

I love Diane's name for him - Blue Man Grouper! That trumps mine!

Anna said...

He looks like a Buddy.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Ohhh, I just LOVE his face Carmi...LOL...He is formidable and loveable, ALL at the same tine!
A name for this guy....Grrroucho!
The Extra "r's" are needed because he looks like he might be growling....And also that he might just be a grouch....LOL!

Aquamario DaGruff

although Diane Mandy's "Blue Man Grouper" cracks me up! I wish I'd thought of that.

carli said...

His name is Sy. He told me so.

Chase said...

Oh my that is such a big fish!

Siani said...

Amazing image. What should he called? He looks like a Humphrey. Or maybe an Algernon, LOL. Thanks for the visit, and the nice, thoughtful comments about the Dylan Thomas image I posted. Happy WW!

Heidi said...

Big Al

He totally reminded me of the character from one of my kids' books. Big Al by Andrew Clements and illustrated, I believe, by Yoshi.

Superchai said...

Big Moe.
I don't know why that's just what I thought he looked like. He looks like a Big Moe.
Oh wait and if its a female- she should be Big Cindy Lou.
My apologies to anyone with EITHER of those names :)

Chuck Dickson said...

Carmi.. I think I'll have to go with
Theodore.. as in Geisel.. as in Dr. Seuss.. as in one fish, two fish, red fish, BLUE FISH... it was a long trip.. but worth it. Now.. no carping about it..
