Of course it doesn't really matter to the snake or not, but as bbailey mentioned, it is human nature. I also talk to my snakes, is that innapropriate to? I'm not trying to accomplish anything and I know they don't hear any of it and I'm sure even if they did they probably wouldn't understand any of it. Also as you mentioned, naming is a show of affection. Just because my snake doesn't love me doesn't mean I don't love it. It isn't harming anyone to talk to your animals and give them names (just so long as you do not make the mistake of anthromorphizing, we are only doing this to please ourselves). I don't think there is anything innapropriate about it.
