I name my betta fish. Only because it seems they learn their name. Fish that are intelligent and personable seem to get names because after years of talking to a fish, giving it a name other than "little guy" and "it" seems fairly logical. Most everyone I've met keeping an oscar gives the fish a name.

Tumi used to come out when I called him. But then I moved him into a new tank and now that there are other big fish and more places to hide he doesn't anymore.

I name a fish that is really interactive and has a good personality. No since in naming a fish that "hates you" imo. Naming fish is not for children. They are pets just like cats and dogs and should be treated as such, as some of the senior members will tell you.Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

Most of my fish actually come when called. Most. And most are named. It would take a while to list all, but meh, ill do it again.
Reaper - Veil tail betta
Squiggles - deformed Albino Dwarf Cory
The pink things - other 5 albino dwarf cories
Casper, Wendy, Frankenstein, Nightmare, Pearl - dwarf frogs
10gal Fiddler Tank:
Capricorn - male
Sagittarius - female
Libra - female
Chase - juvie molly
Salt, Scott, Smudge, Snip, Fidget, Chew, Patches, Dipstick - mollies
Makani - gold gourami female
Mahina - dwarf gourami female
Petri - Comet goldfish
Steve - rubbernose pleco
Sid - upside down catfish
Crunch - bleeding heart tetra
Larry, Moe, and friends - java loaches
Bloodfin Gang - self explanatory
and my 4 black neons have no names or gang names either
Also i have Phantom the dying betta that lays on bottom of tank all day but still lives, and i have 2 new molly/platy hybrid babies that arent named yet. They are both female i hope (too early to tell), to fix the ratio of mollies i have (currently 4:5).

I name fish that have distinctive personalities or are identifiable in some unique way.
Fluffy - male half-moon betta (he was a tail biter when I first got him, so I named his tank "Finding Emo")
Snailio Iglesias - brown apple snail
Slois Lane - yellow apple snail
Zig and Zag - tracked nerite snails (I'm not picky about which is which)
Steve and Buddy - yellow male guppies
Brimley - bristlenose pleco
Dar, Earl, Chai, Pekoe, and Angie - baby angel fish
Ohto and Chisato - otocinclus
The nine neon tetras don't have individual names except for Mr. Crabbypants and Boner (don't ask).
The ten harlequin rasboras are the bikers.
The eight skunk cory cats are the won tons.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
