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

    Ichtaca- Aztec for "secret" due to his question marks
    Pololena- Hawaiian for "blossoming", for the banana ball python. It was Countess Chiquita for a while due to her morph and her alien head side pattern dots counting 1,2,3,4 but it didn't suit her. Po fit.
    Leilani- Hawaiian for "heavenly blossoms", for butter tessera corn snake. The color and pattern reminded me of lightening or stars and flowers. Now she reminds me of honey lemon cough drops lol
    Keahi- Hawaiian for "the fire". For obvious reasons
    Wonambi- One of the many Australian Aboriginal names for the rainbow serpent from mythology, for Brazilian rainbow boa
    Leilani- corn snake (butter tesserra)
    Keahi- corn snake (sunglow motley)
    Pololena- ball python (banana)
    Ichtaka- ball python (mystic potion)
    Wonambi- Brazilian rainbow boa (normal)

    Kinda like using theme names.

    My black pastels have botanical names. My pieds and the female albino I have kicking around (who was originally supposed to be part of an albino pied project) are named after characters in a story I've been chipping away at forever. The Angolans are Ripley and Hicks

    Three don't have themes. My rosy boa, Kira, I named after Major Kira of DS9. Got her while the show was still in its original run, after all.
    And John has named two snakes -- Magneto the pastel and Sheila the JCP. Though when I get around to picking up another Jungle, it will also have a name beginning with S.

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

    Everything from the snake personnality to movie character for ball pythons, to Greek mythology theme for hognose, to Egyptian theme for Honduran milksnakes.

    Now I need to find a new theme for another species I am getting back into.

    I named my pastel Leeloo after The 5th Element due to the alien heads on her side.

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

    Named Calliope after a Homestuck character. Calliope is a cherub, and in Homestuck a Cherub is an alien that when they reach full maturity turns into a snake that is either evil and spreads destruction or good and seeks out to stop the evil one's paths of destruction.
