    Re: How did your snake get its name?

    Xylon
    His name was random and researched. I spent about an hour researching his name. At first I was gonna name him Xander, but thought that name was too plan. Then I happen to stumbled upon Xylon. Love the name and it stuck. Nickname ZiZi. Love my little noodle.

    My newest addition, Lan Fan the Japanese rat snake, is named after Lan Fan from Fullmetal Alchemist.



    She's a guardian to one of the princes of Xing, and most of the series she's usually somewhere up high, like in trees or on top of buildings, either watching over the prince or trying to find him (he has a habit of running off without his guardians... a lot). She's not much a talker, and when not personally invested in a fight, she's more likely to nope out in favor of following the prince.

    So far Lan Fan's pretty similar to her namesake, therein that she's constantly watching and hiding in the shadows, and then darting all over her enclosure.

    Re: How did your snake get its name?

    This is Claude, my albino pastel spider, named after the scaredy cat in the Looney Tunes cartoons. I've only had him for about a week and a half, but he is by far the most skittish of my bps. If I sit very still, he will eventually move around, but any movement and he is all balled up.

    Re: How did your snake get its name?

    This is Dembe (pronounced Dem-bay).

    He's a 4 year old male Pastel Fader BP I recently acquired.

    Dembe is a character on the show "The Blacklist". He is Raymond Reddington's right hand man and most trusted ally.

    Dembe is a man of few words, but when he does speak it is gold. He acts as Raymond's moral compass when Red goes astray. Reddington saved Dembe when he was a child and his loyalty is to the death.

    Such a cool character, and the snake is deserving of the name.

    Re: How did your snake get its name?

    Noodle, my ratsnake and my very first snake. I know it's a common name, but I got her as a hatchling, she's albino, and she really did look like a little pink noodle.

    Spot,my BP. He's a banana and he came with a really cool name from GoT, Aegon (I bought him "used"), but Spot is kinda dopey and docile and cuddly, and it didn't fit him at all. I thought about Freckles but the kids said that was a really stupid name for a snake, so I made it even stupider and named him Spot, after Data's cat from Star Trek.

    Lucy is my daughter's BP and she named her after I Love Lucy. And it doesn't fit her at all- she's a really big grump, bites sometimes, and hisses too.

    I wanted names for the snakes that were friendly and funny, so my non-snake-liking friends might not be as afraid or turned off by them. So far it's worked and I've had several converts. Noodle has her own fan club on my Facebook page and when we have our big wedding in January, several people have asked that somehow Noodle is part of the ceremony!

    Our familiy: Noodle the albino ratsnake; Spot the Banana BP, Lucy the massive pinstripe BP, Harold the panther chameleon, Poppy the hedgehog, Bob and Ross the beta fish, Maya the dog, Max and Momo the cats, Tauntaun the Light Brahma Chicken (lives at the high school barn), two teenagers, and a very nice partner, all well-loved and cared for.
