My O.B.T. is evil, so she is Samara (from movies "The Ring")
G. rosea is Charlotte (I collect pigs, so from the book "Charolette's web")
G. pulchra is Leyla (means "night beauty")
A. versicolor is Aurora for all her beautiful colors =)
Lasiodora parahybana is Nayvin (Greek War Goddess)
B. albapilosum is Cassair (Irish name meaning curly-haired)

and then there are ones I named cause I liked the names and thought it worked for them:

cyclosternum fasciatum is Una
G pulchripes is Carmela
Eupalastrus campestratus is Iola
B boehmei is Mina

Aphonopelma sp is Marley

I named my t's one through sixteen. Four is definitely my favorite. "My little fourby warby."

I used a lot of place and character names from Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series:
G. roseas -Ramoth, Alaranth, Orlith
G. pulchra - Faranth
G. pulchripes - Piemur
B. emelias - Benden, Ista, Igen, Honshu, Telgar
B. smithi - Ruatha
B. vagans - Menolly, Brekke
B. boehmei - Lessa, Sorka
B. verdezi - Aramina

LPs Llaves and Huevos were named after a miscommunication faux pas...
GBB Pitufo- sounds like a sneeze, means smurf, seemed to fit...
A. genic Aranha - not very original, means spider.

OBT is named for spider lore: Ananse

At five, when Elizabeth got her first tarantula she named her "Fluffy". When asked why, she answered, "for the irony". We'll have Fluffy twelve years in August.

I particularly don't like to name my exotic pet cause I seem to have a curse on me. Every time I name one the seem to die shortly after. Although I've decide to give it another go and name my female Avic. Amazonica "SnuSnu"

Montezuma ( Monty) & Rex, or Araña & Reina

Montezuma ( Araña) is a Mexican Fireleg so he/she got a Spanish/Mexican name. Araña is Spanish for spider
Rex/Reina is a Green Bottle Blue and my 5 year old named it after his build-a-bear teddy bear LOL
Bought my third tarantula today. 'She' is a 3 1/2 - 4" G. Rosea. I'd seen her at the pet store and thought she was too tame, after handling her I actually decided I liked the fact she is so docile, name is Scarlett O'Haira LOL

\m/>.<\m/ They are awesome, saw them open for Cannibal Corpse.


I only have 1 T I have named out of 3. Two of them are 2 small for me to name.

Avicularia. Avicularia - Ramona - Character in Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Because she has 3 different colors of hair.
Actually turns out my Avic is a male so i changed his name to OVIE! after my favorite hockey player.

I did name mine, because I like having the opportunity to have some fun. :D But in reality I probably won't ever use the names...I'll just call them by their scientific name or their common name...

I had an A. avic that I named Crimson Ember for the bright pink on her toes that looked like embers from a fire. Then she died and I got an A. versi sling and named it Saphire Ashes intill she gets her big girl colors.
Saphire for the color and Ashes because my other one was ember and when embers die they turn to ashes.

B. albopilosum - Dr Jekyl/Mr Hyde, depends on whether I can see him or not.
Euathlus sp. "Red" - Ruby, based on cockney rhyming slang - Ruby Murray (for curry) cos he's got a little red bottom :)
C. cyaneopubescens - Zippy, after a character from the kids UK TV Rainbow show, due to all his different colours (he's only an inch long :)).
G. pulchra - Trigger, because he eats like a horse.
