    I have too many now to just list here, you can look at my profile for a list of names.

    But you can see that I name most of my Ts after Game of Thrones characters: my A. metallica is Daenerys, my P. Miranda is Arya, my Davus pentaloris is Davos, my GBB is Melisandre, my N. chromatus is Visenya, my A. chalcodes is Cersei, etc. A few other standouts include my F/M pair of L. klugi, Wanda and Pietro, from the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, my new P. irminia named Shere Khan, my B. vagans named... Bilbo Vagans, and my C. marshalli named Einhorn.

    cpenno Arachnopeon

    Called my most recent tarantula Shelob (from Lord of the Rings) as she's a nasty wee fucker lol. P. pulcher
  12. Kylabear

    Kylabear Arachnopeon

    Just got my first T a giant white knee sling ( sorry forgot the real name ) and have named him/her Slash.
  13. OBT - Trump (not really, was named Sunshine -- MM'd way before Trump ran for election)
    P cambri -- Chevy MM'd also

    Current ones w/ names:
    G Rosea - Rosie
    GBB - Bloo
    A Avic - Timber
    B albo - Hagrid
    G pulchripes - Aragog
    B Emilia - Emilia

    Most didn't get names, and arguably -- Rosie, Emilia & Chevy weren't really names either, technically. I walked over to enclosures to see if any others were labeled with names... nope.

    A seemanni -- a fave here -- really deserves a good name but I can't think of one....
