I will introduce some of the video on YouTube on here.

MULLET

You may be familiar with the mullet.
Because mullet is distributed in coastal temperate and tropical water almost all over the world .

Mullet is usually called BORA in Japan.
And mullet has other name, INA, TODO, and so on.
A small mullet is called INA and a large one is TODO.
( It's not "to do". It would sound like "toe dog".)

As this, there are fish nickname changes depending on the size in Japan.
We call such a fish "SYUSSE-UO".
"UO" means "fish".
"SYUSSE" means "success" or "promotion".
It means mullet has the potential for career advancement.

こういう呼び名があるということは、大きくなることは良いことであるというイメージがあるのでしょう。

日本には古来、元服という成人の儀式がありました。
その時に幼名を改め名前を付け直すということがなされていました。

有名なところでは、戦国時代を代表する武将(侍)の徳川家康は、子供の頃は竹千代という名前でした。

もしかすると、そういう風習から大きくなった魚に別な名前を宛がうことが行われたのかもしれませんね。

In other countries, is there a case for changing the nickname by size like this?

A salmon has several name.
Parr - Smolts -Salmon - Grilse - Kelt
But These difference are not due to size, due to the state of the fish.
For example, "Kelt" means a state that has finished spawning.
This name is not only distinguished by size
