    She needs a nameeeeee.... ideas???

    This pretty little girl is reserved for me and I'll be getting her in a couple weeks or so. I'm beyond excited for her. This will be my first boa, but I've been eyeing hog island boas for a couple years now and as soon as my husband and landlord gave me the green light I started searching breeders. She's pure hog island and an absolute beauty.

    Did I mention I'm excited????

    So... names... if anyone has suggestions please please offer them up. I want something exotic sounding...

    I'm a big Game of Thrones fan so some of the names I'm considering are Nymeria (Arya Stark's dire wolf) and Khaleesi.

    I also love Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit and really like the new elf character that is not in the books, but is introduced in the new Hobbit movie. Her name is Tauriel. I don't like plain regular names when it comes to snakes.

    Anyways... hope you like her. There will definitely be more pics once she is here and settled in.

    I'm not one for snakes, but she is gorgeous.

    And I love all of those names. I know. I'm so helpful! When I saw her I thought of the name "Selena". Only maybe spelled Saelena. Of the names you listed, I thought I liked Nymeria the best, but now I'm thinking Tauriel.

    Thank you. I can't wait until she is home with me. I'm seriously crazy about hog islands. Another name that was suggested to me on Facebook was Pig since she is a hog lol. It isn't exotic sounding like I want, but I actually really like it too.

    Snakes aren't my thing, either, but I can understand your excitement. Congratulations! She's pretty.

    I don't know how that name is pronounced, but seeing it, I was reminded of a hissing sound.

    If you are at all a Harry Potter fan, Ron's owl that he got later on in the series' name was Pigwidgeon - Pig for short.

    I love her!! So excited for you :)

    As far as names go, if you can avoid Khaleesi, please do LOL I liked the name about a year ago, but now it's really just overdone. Everyone and their dog and their kid and their snakes and their geckos are getting named Khaleesi.

    Dragon names from the ASOIAF series include

    Drogon
    Rhaegal
    Viserion
    Balerion
    Meraxes
    Vhagar
    Vermithor
    Tessarion
    Morghul
    Shrykos
    Syrax
    Meleys
    Caraxes
    Vermax
    Arrax
    Tyraxes

    Most of them are male dragons, but I think you could get away with that. If my snake had been a female, I definitely would have chosen a Sand Snake name... one of which actually is a Nymeria. I'm a huge fan of the Dornish, but I don't know how far you are into the book series (if at all). Their names are

    Obara Sand
    Nymeria Sand (Lady Nym)
    Tyene Sand
    Sarella Sand
    Elia Sand

    I love that! I'm thinking I might save that idea for when I get a male hog down the road.


    I love some of the ones you posted. Just have to figure out how to pronounce them lol. I think at this point I'm actually leaning more towards Nymeria. Still not 100% positive though.

    I added more names to my list of possible names

    Navina
    Maeve (pronounced Mave)
    Luna
    Circe (pronounced sur-see)
    Bellatrix (Harry Potter)
    Cyra (seer-a, CY-ra) I like the CY-ra pronunciation more
    Mila (pronounced mee-la)
    Faline (from Bambi)
    Alethea (Alicia with a lisp)
    Cybele (SYB-el-lee)
