First of all I would like to say that those are some stunning cal kings, so whatever you want to call them, nice find.
Second, if you are just getting into cal kings you will rapidly find out about all of the different horrible naming that goes on. This has been a recent topic of conversation on here. See the posts a few down and a few up from this one.
Third, Kerby is right, albino and lavender are two separate traits. Now, like bluerosy said, some people argue that it is like other T vs T- and there are regular albinos vs lavendar albinos. However I think that this is extremely confusing because a snake can be both at the same time (they are two different traits) although I don't know how you could tell if a snake was both, it is possible. If a lavender is called a lavender albino then what do you call the snakes who are actually both?
To compound this, people who have darker colored albinos frequently just throw on the word lavender, because, well the color is kinda lavender. But this is not the mutation.
Personally I would just use the word lavender not lavender albino.
Lastly, I would call your snakes high yellow, not bananas. See my post above for more on this.
