I think of the name python reminds me of one of my favorite types of snakes, a python, especially a reticulated python and an Indian rock python ( especially kaa from the jungle book) though my other favorite type of snake is an anaconda, because I am really a snake enthusiast and snakes are actually my favorite reptile and I am not scared of snakes at all because I love them.
