People close to me all seem to think Bean is thusly named because I (frequently) say “cool beans”.
Bean is named after a character from 2 Orson Scott Card books. Ender’s Game & Ender’s Shadow. Both amazing reads. To me, Bean stuck out so sharply. Still does. So when I looked at my little dude when we got home, it was almost a no-brainer.
I highly recommend both above books, as well as the rest in the series.
Now, Bean-Its. Basicly, the only treat Bean will accidentally run into door & walls for. Each box gets a facelift.
