Tom the Snail is part of the snail crowd that lives inside SpongeBob's House during the episode, "Sanctuary!" He was possibly temporarily owned by SpongeBob. Like the rest of the snails, his name was referred by SpongeBob and may not have been his real name given by Bob Barnacle.
Tom could have gotten his name from SpongeBob's voice actor, Tom Kenny.
