    I love Mia - but maybe that's the military in me.

    Mia actually stands for "MIA" - missing in action - and I liked that one.

    I think we posted at the same time!
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    I wish I'd read this before I clicked the link. I think I just had a small heart attack.

    The snake read the nominees and launched a contest to rename the Bronx Zoo.

    I noticed that all the names were female; is it a female cobra?

    Yes, it's a female snake.

    I'm bummed that my submission didn't make the finals.

    I submitted "Bast Zahra" (egyptian) so the initials were BZ=Bronx Zoo.
    (Although, I think it should be reversed, right? top-to-bottom, right-to-left in Egyptian?)

    BAST: impulse, motion
    ZAHRA: blooming, flourishing; or flower

    She impulsively went on her walkabout in the Spring!

    Ah well, sour grapes: the fix is in. I'm voting for Agnes! I think it's the silliest of them all!

    (Although I thought Mia was silly until I read the MIA post. Too late, sorry.)

    I think all of the names are very mundane, with MIA being the least mundane, but not great.

    Snakes creep me out so I wouldn't give one a human name. IMO, "Hissy" is a good name for a snake since they hiss to warn people off.

    The little snake-let goes on display this weekend, I believe.
