    Cake: I loved food names at the time, and albino reminds me of lemon cake! It's a total coincidence my name is Fiona... So it ends up being an Adventure Time reference... LOL

    Yukon: white place, white snow

    Vigil: I wanted a sharp sounding name. But she is not sharp at all.

    Gem: A BEAUTIFUL GEM

    Drizzle: Finally an interesting one, she arrived a few hours late, the deliveryman didn't ring the doorbell so I had no idea how long she sat out there, AND it was drizzling that day, so her shipping box was wet.

    Pixie: I wanted something short and girly and cute.

    Blissey, Togetic: I was replaying all the pokemon games at the time LOL

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

    my beautiful baby boy Kassadin was named after a champion in a video game (League of Legends). i was thinking of doing Cassie for Cassiopeia, which is another champ in League

    but i decided on Kassadin because i ended up getting a boy and it sounded close enough haha

    not too exciting but i'm hoping that as i get more pets in the future i can continue my League theme (or at least a video game theme) :^)

    My first snake ever, a ball python of course, is named Boots. Every time I tell this story, they think it's funny because it's supposed to be ironic. No, it's dark humor.
    Really my only notable name in my collection.

    Other than that, I just have more "graceful" names like Florida, Nylah, Julius, Alice, Kaa, Tigress etc. Whatever names just pop in my head. Of course, there's also Mango, which is my blood python. Surprise surprise, I'm not creative, I just named an orange snake after a fruit.

    Also, because y'all love pictures so much. This is Florida.

    Bagels. Just brought him home from the show and had him in a holding tub with non latching lid. He pushed up on the lid while he was in the kitchen, I heard it click and see him trying to make a run for it. I grabbed the 1st thing I saw to keep him contained while I finished getting his actual tub together. When trying to think of a name, I kept going back to Bagels as a joke. It stuck.

    The one on the left is mine, she is called Nǚwā, after the chinese goddess.
    The one on the right is my friends, he is called Luther. All their animals are named after people who annoyed the catholic church.

    Thank you so much! She is quite beautiful, just wish she weren't quite as evil as the snake whom she's named after :/

    Haha XD
    I bet not QUITE as evil as Nagini- but then again, she didn't do much to aid Voldemort(nothing quite consensual, I mean). Both snakes are beautiful, at any point.

    My boa, Irwin, is named for Steve Irwin, obviously, but my other boa, Gimel, has a more interesting name. I've told this story before but....
    Dreidel, the Chanukah spinning top of lore, is a gambling game played with chocolate coins - the 4 sides of the dreidel each indicate a different result for the spinner: SHIN means you must put 2 more coins into the pot, NUN means you neither win nor lose any coins, HAY means you win half the pot, and
    GIMEL means you win the whole pot. - I had been scouring the classified sites for weeks and weeks with some interesting results but none that really struck me, then i came across the picture below in her ad; look at the large saddle on the upper left, i saw that and realized she literally had "winner" written all over her!
