  1. These are fantastic names, and I wish I’d had this list when I named my snake. I would probably have gone with something funny; it’s a female snake but I adored William Snakespeare and Hisstopher Walken. Maybe I would have called her Hisstina Rattlerra. I think it’s funny that you included so many Greek/mythological names, because I named her Antigone, which fits right into those lists but isn’t included. Fun coincidence.

  3. Love these snake names! I’m definitely going to save this list for later. My parents are finally letting me get a snake after months of trying to convince them and I’m so happy! I’m going to wait until he or she is home to give him a name.
