The only one named I have is my first one,
2" unsexed G. pulchripes named Paco Chaco.

Everyone else will probably eventually earn names as they grow and age.

How about... name someone else's T's? ;)

Zane ~ Avicularia avicularia, Guyana Pinktoe
Isa ~ Avicularia versicolor, Antilles Pinktoe
Jiiga ~ Brachypelma albopilosum, Honduran Curlyhair
Lamatra ~ Brachypelma emilia, Mexican Redleg
Vilmaris Varian ~ Chromatopelma cyanopubescens, Venezuelan Greenbottle Blue
Aiken ~ Grammostola auerostriata, Chaco Golden Knee
True ~ Grammostola pulchra, Brazilian Black
Samara ~ Grammostola rosea, Chilean Rose
Alice ~ Grammostola rosea, Chilean Rose

Yet to be named:
3 Brachypelma albopilosum, Honduran Curlyhair
Finally thought of names for these three while studying for my Calculus final:

Sine, Cosine, and Tangent. :D
These are the only two T's left from that collection I had years ago. That is a little difficult to look back on what 'used to be.' I hope the T's I had to give up for free in the sale/trade forum found their way to good homes...

The ladies:
Grammostola aureostriata (Aiken)
Grammostola pulchra (True)

Aiken means something like "oak" or "little oak" if my memory serves me correctly.

True is named after a piece of music from Sient Hill 2, which was playing in-game when she arrived in the mail (at only 1" in LS):

[YOUTUBE]UDKx1Rp1yAA[/YOUTUBE]

Here are the other T's in my current collection that I have already named:

0.0.3 Aphonopelma hentzi (Newt, T.R.W., Link)
0.0.1 Brachypelma smithi (C.J.)
0.0.4 Brachypelma vagans (Uno, River, J.J.Rousseau, RED13)
0.0.4 Grammostola rosea (Barbara Ann, Doc, Zuul, "Indy"/'Indefatigable')
0.0.1 Pterinochilus murinus (Skittles)

notes on the names:
Barbara Ann & Doc: came to me pre-named, and I am more than happy to keep those names. It is such a neat thing, IMO, to receive T's who are already named.
Indy (Indefatigable): is named for a ship (a frigate, to be precise) in a fictional series based on C. S. Forester's books. This T is NOT named for Indiana Jones.
RED13: a character from the game Final Fantasy VII.
J.J.Rousseau: is named for Jean-Jacques Rousseau
C.J.: is named for the mall security guard character in the Dawn of the Dead remake.
Newt: is named for the little girl in Aliens.
Link: is named for the character you play as in Nintendo's Zelda games.
T.R.W.: is named for T.R.W. Consultants, an oil drilling & completions consulting company for which I was employed to draw up the company logo while said consulting company was working for Vintage Petroleum.
Uno: was the first T I unpacked from that shipment of B. vagans slings.
River: I named while sleep-deprived because I had found it in a death curl after returning home from being away for 2 days during a heat wave. On the thought that it might be dehydrated, I stayed up all night, nudging it gently around its container to force it to keep moving so that it might drink some of the misted water on the side of its container. It took all night, but it lived. My sleep deprived mind associated "keeping it moving" + "water" = "River." And that is how the name came to be.
Zuul: is named for that... thing... in Ghostbusters... and is also a likely candidate for a future psychopathic rosea, hence the name. To modify a quote from the film: "There is no G. rosea, only Zuul."
Skittles: is just... well... Skittles - yes, named after the candy. Because of the brightness of color it will be in the future (still a sling now) I figured it seemed an appropriate enough name.

Here are the T's I would welcome name "donations" from AB members for:

0.0.2 Brachypelma emilia
0.0.11 Grammostola rosea


Go ahead! Name a T!

:)

PM me with the species you thought of the name for, and the name, and depending on how many suggestions I get, I will name the T that - or put a bunch of suggested names in a hat and pick one out for each T that needs a name.

Cyriocosmus elegans - Valentina (To commemorate with Valentine's Day since she was born in February and has the heart shape on her abdomen.)

Cyriocosmus perezmilesi - Juliet (I got her in July and it's a romantic sounding name from Romeo and Juliet which matches the heart shape on her abdomen.)

Nhandu coloratovillosus - Cleopatra (It's the name of a queen and sounds big and grand, which is how she looks, and I wanted to keep with the Shakespearean sounding names.)
