Hello all!

i can't be the only one. Not that I'm anti-naming, i just.. don't.

Anyone else?

i have to admit that some people have pretty funny names for their T's (none come to mind right now,but trust me:), though..

anyways
peace

I don't really name mine either unless you count calling them by their scientific names like I call my goliath bird eater blondi, my rose hair rosy, pink toe pinky, togo named mac. well i guess that is nameing them, but if someone ask my what there names are I just tell them the scientific name.

I let my daughter name them, or will occasionally throw a name on one if some event warrants it. About half of mine have names now, my daugter seemed to run out :)

mine too Bill LOL!
Her imagination is on hiatus at the moment, hence, many of them are unnamed. Hopefully 'imagination block' will dissipate, and we can get on with naming the rest :D

Occasionally a friend will throw a name to the T, and they can call it that, but i never really refer to my T's as "jessica" -- i don't know.. just doesn't feel right to me :) It takes all kinds, though!

i did name one of mine, one of my avics i got years ago. Her name's Sigridur (Sigga), after my mother. Beautiful icelandic name.

other than that, no names. Maybe one day! I'm not feeling creative right now ;)

peace

too many of em to name here, besides I suffer from CRS, and would not be able to remember all of their names anyway.

Sometimes, it's easier to name them. Otherwise, everyone wants to know why you haven't.

T. blondi = Fugly
L. parahybana = Stoner Dude
G. aureostriata = Medusa

I sure dont name mine, science gave them a name and that is what they have.

Sincerely,

Brandon

I don't name mine either, well, i didn't anyway, but i call them all bill or billy for some reason it's really weird, but my friends think bill is the coolest name and they always go "oh look at that little bill" refering to one of my tarantulas walking or something, it's kind of strange but yea, they are all just bill's and billys. Weird?

Mine don't graduate to a "name" until they are subadult usually. They do have numbers like APHSP-A13 or maybe BALBO54... These are a name of some sort, but it does tent to keep you a bit less attached to them, as nature weeds the seek out whether they are in a loving home or not... This way when nature decides #15 isn't strong enough to live on, I get sad, just not as sad as Mother nature deciding on taking little "hairyette"... I do have all my adults named though

i wish i could take the "i have too many to name" way out, but there's never too many to name. And its not remembering the names either...

i just never named em! Anyone wanna name some T's for me :)
i keep ID numbers and records for all of them (what, with the breeding and all) -- but it doesn't mean I love them any less.

:)

Dave,

If you don't name them, how do you get them to come when you call them? :?

I don't name all of mine, but certain ones have aquired names along the way. Mary Jane, Peter, Rosalia, Gretchen, Madame Hortense, Isabella, Mr. T, Tank, Fluffy, Count Spidercon, Spidey Two-Sheds (yes, in reference to Monty Python), Big Mama Pokie, Big Mama Red Rump, Squishy, JoJo, Whitey, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. The others are IDd by designations like C1, C2 etc.

Cheers,
Dave

ED,
CRS can be cured with labels!LOL!
Some of our T's have names.=D
If you look at their containers, there is a sticker
with their scientific name and the "pet" name.

HMMmmmm? What would you call an "Usambara"...?
We have 3 of them. I named the first one "Rocket"
Because it took off like one when I tried to put it in a
new container! 2 and 3 still need names:)

i REALLLLLLY want to name an Usumbara "Lou Reed".

besides the fact that he's not a OBT, he's a genius. Pure and amazing perfection..

the connection to the T, you ask?

well, there is none. But... who said there had to be a connection?!

ProfT: That's no problem, because when i open the door to get the paper, the T ususally beats me to it, and already has it next to my slippers, in its fangs... smart fellas, huh? :)

dave

and the other dave: Squishy, huh? What T is that?
