    How did your snake get its name?

    Not sure if this was done in the past, but I thought it might be fun to share a picture of your snake and a picture of who/what the snake was named after and if you choose, a brief explanation. I figure let's keep it to snakes, for now....

    Thanks for sharing!

    I'll start. This is Django, my California Kingsnake. He was named after the character played by Jamie Foxx in the movie "Django Unchained"

    This is Pua, my 100% Het Albino Ball Python. I named him after the pig in Moana, who's name comes from the Polynesian word "Pauka" which means pig. I just thought it was a cute and unique name!

    Actually Polynesian is not a language but represents a group of different cultures from many different islands located in the Pacific ocean known as Polynesia (ex. Samoa, Tonga, etc.) And in the Hawaiian language pua means flower and pua'a means pig. Not trying to be an ass just wanted to clear that little mix up(:

    here's Yellow Lemon Lemongrab! his name comes from his color and the Earl of Lemongrab from Adventure Time.




    here's Spaghetti Marinara Noodle! she's named after spaghetti noodles because she is herself a noodle!!!




    aaaand here's Corny, aka Cornelius! Corny was adopted and since the previous owner's kids named him i decided to keep the name. i think it fits in pretty well with the names of my other snakes, don't you think?
