My most memorable name for a venomous snake was a Puff adder that I had and she was just called "The b!tch". I usually do not name any of the others.

I do however talk to them. The curator of TSP once told me that when they answer or react to their names I must give him a call.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

I don’t usually name my snakes but I have named my Boa, Pandora because she is usually in a box when I do talks.
The name evokes attention as no one wants to open Pandora’s box. :lol:

Mine are named after Terry Pratchett's book characters, especially the witches: Agness Nutter, Esmeralda. I also have a Henry.
My wife named my two new corns Saartjie and Stefaansie. I would also rather have named Saartjie PMS. Why do female snakes hate me so much? They always want to bite me.
