    Ok, here's the names of the 14 Ts I have so far, and explanations of them...

    -Grammostola Rosea (RCF), female - "Flower" after Flower of the KMP and Meerkat Manor. Figured she was a rosie from the desert, and Flower was referred to as the Desert Rose, so it fit. Plus Flower seemed to be a spunky, smart, charismatic Meerkat, and I find that my Rosie seems to have quite a bit of personality as well.

    -Avicularia Versicolor sling 1, unsexed - "Clotho" the first aspect of Fate in Greek Mythology. Spins the threads of life.

    -Avicularia Versicolor sling 2, unsexed - "Lachesis" the second aspect of Fate in Greek Mythology. Weaves the threads of life.

    -Avicularia Versicolor sling 3, unsexed - "Atropos" the third aspect of Fate in Greek Mythology. Cuts the threads of life. Fate was often portrayed as a spider, and spins the 'web of life', so with as much web as these 3 spin it seemed like an appropriate set of names! :)

    -Lasiodora Parahybana sling, unsexed - "Nyx" the primordial goddess of Night in Greek mythology, who stood at the beginning of creation, and was a being of exceptional power and extreme beauty. Being a T that will get large, be a dark color, and who I have to sneak in at night to stand a chance at seeing, the name seemed to fit. I also end up feeling like I'm leaving 'offerings' to it at the burrow entrance in hopes of a sighting later on when I put the prekilled crickets in! {D

    -Brachypelma Vagans sling 1, unsexed -"Dozer" short for bulldozer.

    -Brachypelma Vagans sling 2, unsexed - "Digger"

    -Brachypelma Vagans sling 3, unsexed - "Mole" - These guys have been digging and tunneling like mad! :D

    -Brachypelma Bohemi sling, unsexed - "Aidan" This is an unisex Irish Gaelic name meaning "Little Firey One"

    -Brachypelma Smithi sling, unsexed - "Bob" {D I figured this was the 'classic' T of the hobby, a 'traditional' one to have, and the name is traditional in my family (2 grandpas and a few cousins with the name), as well as being a long standing (classic) joke among my friends I grew up with (male and female - I had a friend of each gender who argued over which one was allowed the name of Bob, and who tried to get teachers to refer to them by the name...even though it was in no way, shape or form related to their names!) The name just felt right for this little guy. {D {D {D

    -Grammostola Aureostriata sling, unsexed - "Orla" This is a Scottish Gaelic name meaning "Golden"

    -Poecilotheria Rufilata sling, unsexed - "Faran" This name is from a favorite series of mine - its the name of a roan warhorse, who is unusually smart, fairly aggressive, very powerful, fast, and full of personality. Seemed like a great name to give to my pokie. :wicked:

    -Cyriocosmus Elegans sling 1, unsexed - "Aphrodite" the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

    -Cyriocosmus Elegans sling 2, unsexed - "Freyja" the Norse goddess of love and beauty. They will be quite beautiful when they get their colors, and the little heart shaped markings they get called out for a name related to love. :D

    I'm currently on a kick of naming them after famous people that they remind me of. Talk about anthropomorphizing! Here's a few:

    F Paraphysa scrofa, Whitney Houston
    Juvie A. versicolor, Carmen Electra
    Crazy G. rosea, Courtney Love (she's a pet Hole).
    G. iheringi, Scarlet. Rhett (my M iheringi) died in a terrible molt recently. I just think he didn't give a damn.
    F. E. murinus (skeleton tarantula) Nichole Ritchey
    F H. longipes Naomi Campbell
    Panama blond, Pamela Anderson
    M G. aureostriata, Bow Wow (ok, it's because he's the size of a small dog).
