    Re: How did your snake get it's name?

    I named my babygirl Nagini after Lord Voldemort's snake in Harry Potter. Also, I'm Slytherin house

    I keep it unnamed for a while until I get a feel for its personality/temperament, and then I match that up to a character from Greek, Roman, or Norse mythology.

    Yeah, I tend to get to know them for a bit before I name them as well.

    I have a lot so I'll just include photos of the snake itself and an explanation. 2 of them I didn't name so they aren't included.

    1. Bud, because he's my buddy. I was 12 when I got him, don't judge. haha



    2. Cloud Strife, after the Final Fantasy Cloud Strife.



    3. Draco, Latin for Dragon, because when I first got him he was scared of everything. Me, his food, himself, but with his angry face he looked like an angry dragon.



    4. Sanji, after the One Piece character Vinsmoke Sanji, because he has one head stripe "eyebrow" that's more zig zagged than the other. The differences reminded me of Sanji's swirly brow. lol



    5. Riverrun, after the House Tully Riverrun in Game of Thrones. I just liked the way it sounded, and it seemed to fit her because of her long, thin body moving like a river.



    6. Nymeria after the direwolf/queen in Game of Thrones. I just liked the sound of it and it seemed to fit her.



    7. Crona after the Soul Eater character. He's thin like Crona and his motley pattern reminded me of them for some reason.



    8. Howl after Howl in Howl's Moving Castle, because he's pretty.



    9. Tirel after Elspeth Tirel. I just liked the sound of it.



    10. Homura after the Puella Madoka Magica character Homura Akemi, because I liked the sound of it.




    Bonus: my two deceased snakes just because I like their names.

    Guin after Guin from Guin Saga. Idk why she just reminded me of him.



    Morzan after Morzan from Eragon because of his spitfire attitude and red colors.

    Re: How did your snake get it's name?

    This is Cosmo, named after Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld. I figured a funny little hognose should have a name with a big personality.
