    New to site: this is my first girl.

    My first Ball Python. A Lesser Mojave Bel around 300g.
    I've had her for a few days and I am in love with her. She is so gentle and beautiful.

    I'm trying to decide on a name.
    My first thought was Gabrielle (female version of gabriel since she is an angel)

    Lucy (I know very unoriginal)

    Bella (also unoriginal but I like it)

    Do you all have anything?

    She’s gorgeous! What an amazing first snake! You chose wisely .

    She looks like an Athena, Aphrodite, Sasha Fierce, or Pearl to me. My girl Pearl has a nice ring to it.

    You could go the fun and whimsical route with "Snowball" or "Blizzard". (?). ... Just a thought.

    Beautiful snake though! I've been out of the hobby for a while and just got back into it this week with a young Banana Black Pastel male. I was originally going there to get a BEL as well (Lesser X Lesser) but I fell for the colour and pattern on my new little guy.

    Or you can do "opposites" like "Melanie". (as in- no melanin...)

    Or since these are also known as "royal" pythons (Python regius), you might give her your favorite royal family name?

    Whatever you call her, she'll still be beautiful.

    I have a white leopard gecko named blizzard. But I could be something else.
    I came in a hair of getting a Banana Fire Mojave Pastel. There are so many beautiful snakes out there! Before I started looking for one I thought all there where was the normal ones you see at big box pet stores and albinos.

    I want to get a male later, 3 years maybe, and am doing my research now to see what the best pairing would be.

    Oh Royal names... I could call her Daenerys Targaryen. I know game of thrones is going out of style though lol.

    Thanks for the compliment. I can't help but stare at her when I take her out. Just something about those solid white scales that mesmerizes me.

    GoT can never go out of style.

    I like Dany, aka Daenerys, or Arya. And if you already have a Blizzard then Snowball is cute too. Or what about Jadis, the Ice Queen of Narnia.

    That’s all I got. 😀

    Or you could do what I'd probably do, and name her Shadow or Midnight.
    Stupid idea, I know, but if I get a BEL (it's on my list) I am totally going to do that. To go along with my cat named Rabbit and my dog named Kitty.
