    I have a butter motley Corn named Land o'Lakes after the brand of butter, a classic Corn named Gypsy because she traveled around a lot before finding her forever home with me, a scaleless Corn named Suede (whose girlfriend will be Velvet... waiting on the right one from SMR). My Cubans are Julio and Carmen. My coral glow is Max Skinner (from the movie A Good Year) so his purple passion girlfriend-to-be is Fannie Chanel. My high white pied is Escobar (cocaine drug lord). My albino is Daisy. My Otay rosy male is Speckles because he has speckles, and his lady friend is Lady. My SD female is a lavender so her name is Peaches, hence her boyfriend is Herb (1970's vocalist duo). Oh, and I have a tessera Corn named Barry Allen (the Flash) because he's fast as He** .

    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!

    Awesome!!! I definitely dig Irwin as a tribute, and Gimel is a great name with a better back story, and yeah, the saddle matches up almost perfectly from what I can see. Thanks for sharing!!

    My Ball Python is named Bumblebee off of Transformers. We named her this because we thought she was a boy, but she is a girl. Or i'm pretty certain. I'll know for sure soon. I'm just happy the name goes both ways!




    I also have a sign above her tank that says "Your the Bee's knees!" and I laugh every time I see it because since my snake literally doesn't have any knees, I have to be her knees when I hold her!

    I don't name mine. What's the point? They don't come when you call them.

    My boy is Meeko. His name come from two places the first of which being my favorite little doggy companion in skyrim and the second the racoon from Pocahontas. We had a really hard time choosing his name but it had to be something cute and sweet to match him ^-^ Also his nickname is Meek so it fits as well XD

    Great names, everybody!

    I have a 2 month old normal named Ripley. Her name comes from the Alien movies. I recently purchased an art print of Ripley (the character) and an alien from a tattoo show and that art print now hangs above and behind her tank.

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

    My enchi firebee is named Hissinger because I thought he was hissing at nothing when I first got him. I'd hear him doing it when I was across the room. I figured out it was the vibrations from my high heels on the hardwood floor, because it only ever happened when I wore them. I make sure not to wear them on the second floor where my snakes are anymore. He has only hissed at me a couple times since, and it's been during cleanings when I've had to move him. He's still the only bp I have that hisses, so the name stays
    My super mojave is Slitherin, because I'm a nerd who owns snakes and I enjoy really terrible puns.
    My albino is Orange Crush, because he reminds me of the soda.
    My pewter is named Whiffle, badum tisssssss.
    My spider is Parker because Spider-Man has been my favorite marvel hero since I was tiny, but his "pet" name is Spoder.

    My females have never really had a definitive name for any one of them. I'm terrible with girl names, I guess. I've always called my super pastel girl "my main squeeze" because she was the only female I had for a long time, and it's also another terrible snake joke. She has a billion other names, though. The other girls I have are all new, one of which isn't even here yet, so no names have been decided.
