To the best of my knowledge, this is a true story, though I have no
authenticating resource to cite:

When members of the British comedy group were sitting around trying to come
up with a name, they kept coming up with ideas that had already been used.
It was Eric Idle, I think, who suggested "Monty Python--because no one's
ever been called *that* before!"

A few months after _Monty Python's Flying Circus_ aired, they received a
letter from a Mr Montgomery Python who, fortunately, thought the use of his
name was delightful.
