  • Naming assistance needed

    I still haven't come up with a good enough name for my new Key West Boa. He's so awesome, he deserves an awesome name. I don't usually have a difficult time naming my animals but I see I need some help. Throw some names at me!

    Thats a hard one.. I usually pick out a particular trait about the boa to make my decision.

    I don't know what type of name you are looking for but I have been hearing the name "Cassius" for a while now. You can pronounce it "Cash-us" or "Cas-e-ous."

      Zamora - again, I'm glad he's with you and the anticipation is over.

      As far as naming.... To me; he looks like a Rocky or Keystone (for the genes not the beer)

          Then I would think about THIS guy every time I looked at him. Keep trying.

              "KissMe" (hahahaha!) **

              I usually do as Elizabeth94 does...time & characteristics usually suggest something to me. Sometimes I totally make up a name too, or look through a name-dictionary for ideas, especially

              for the foreign-exotic ones. Opposites work too: when I named what was THEN an overly-defensive (teeth-first) boa, I called her "Snookems" to remind me (& everyone else) that she was

              just a scared baby at heart...but when she got big, it also served as an "ice-breaker" when she got to meet people. Giggles help to dispel fear in those not comfortable with snakes.

              **BTW, there was a boa named "Esme" in the old movie "Foul Play" with Chevy Chase & Goldie Hawn...

                    Wow, great minds! The first three on the list are what came to my mind plus Crockett and Tubbs since they went to the Keys sometimes.

                        Names meaning "red" (just for the stripe):
                        Jasper
                        Rusty
                        Roan/Rowan

                        Random things that come to mind:
                        Nummo
                        Bacon
                        Henna
                        Seraph

                        Of course it helps to know the personality first!

                          Thanks for all the suggestions and I think I have finally decided on a name: Jagermeister

                              He DOES kind of look like that deer on the bottle!
