It's totally fine if you name the input name for your first owl as first_owl_name

You can use anything for naming your variables. But it's better if you use camelCase eg -firstOwlName as instructed by our Head Wizard Stonedahl.

In class I tend to use camelCase like firstOwlName, since that matches the preferred Java naming scheme, which students will need to get used to if they go on to CSC 202.

However, using underscores between words is also a proper Python variable naming convention.

That should be totally fine because its a legal name

Yes! I think it is a good variable name as it is very clear. However, it could be long to type.
