    Aphonopelma chalcodes - Guinevere (Nickname Gwen) after the Arthurian Queen and Gwen Stacy.
  18. Okay so I'm not gonna list the species of tarantula but rather cool names in general.

    Did I say bill?
    I mean c'mon. How can you not like a big ol hairy T named Tom.
    Those are just some male names though.

    On a serious note, I really want to name my p. Metallica sling 'Stella' if it's a female
