Talking naming my pair of BPs...do you name yours?

I got a pair of ball pythons last week & I have yet to name them... all my others, names have just come easily & seem to suit..... these are proving more difficult cuz I want to name them as a couple!!!

I would like to go with matching names of a girl & guy you would always think of together.... i've gotten some really good suggestions so far but wondered about your opinions on naming your animals. I know alot of keepers name a few, but after getting so many they just keep track of M/F stats!

So far, I think i'm deciding between Mark & cleopatra (cleo for short) or Hansel & Gretal (i'm a sucker for german names).

My other snakes are: Amy, Gwen, Jasmine, Zeul
Lizards are: Fluffy, "the new one" even though we've had him for 4 months, and Trogdor (the burninator)

What are some of the names you have for your reptiles?

Sometimes I named them. Some of the names of my snakes are: Moka, Cartman, Lestat, Luke and Duke but the other ones are names by the number I receive them (species +number 1,2,3 ex. ball python 1, ball 2)

My BP I named Shriek . My five Leos are Jake,Jules, Opal, Topaz and Pearl. I have two unnamed Frogeye geckos. My collection had gone down over the years but is slowly coming back up.
Shriek is a real misnomer seeing as he's as passive as can be unless you happen to be on the menu that is

jessikaowl, I think Hansel and Gretal are great names for a pair. Or if your a Sex Pistols fan, Sid and Nancy. Other than that I'm drawing a blank. I have a male bearded dragon named Smaug (smog), named after the dragon in The Hobbit, and a female bp named Pia (it just seemed to suit her), and an as yet unamed female helmeted iquana.
