My God this made me laugh uncontrollably for 5 minutes, I'm still in tears lmaoI only named a few of mine. Ron Jeremy, my male Lp. Slappy is the female (because she slapped him and me several times) My hapalopus and campbridgei babys are all referred to as ****head. My three new stirmis will get names, eventually. Im thinking Princess for the female @Metalman2004 just sold me. Never seen such a large spider so gentle. My gbb is Spaz, still have to name a bunch, when they get older. I just think of them as species/sex mostly.
Bob! That's the funniest name I've heard yet. For some reason tarantulas with names like Bob or Fred or Jonathan make me laugh. "And this is my G pulchra, Laquisha" Rofli have fun naming ours. My son waits for a while till he gets to "know them" to pick a name. All of ours are named in my collection list in my sig, except his new(ish) B. smithi. He's tried a few names and didn't like them, the most recent was Bob
I want to see how many good names for pet tarantulas (or spiders) we can come up with. Here are some categories to get people thinking:
Names from pop culture
Typical, funny, or ironic names
Names relating to common or scientific name
Charlotte, Harry, Spidey are some obvious ones. What can the rest of you come up with?
Order roaches online (rusty reds) Aaronpauling.com. I get all mine from him and they are perfect! Great names!The names for mine are.
Skawphz: adult female H spinifer
Trouble / "little George" according to the ex GF: one of 23 scorplings of mother scorp.
Charlotte: 1st T a spastic C Versicolor who might be a Charles but who knows for sure.
Justina: my 2nd T Lasiodora Klugi confirmed female obtained at 2" now at 5" in size. She's absolutely gorgeous and wonderful. She stays out in plain sight just like Justina does and displays a very similar personality overall. She's probably in premolt.
Maxine (RIP): deceased from fecal impaction suspect female M balfouri. I suspect but can't prove that severe mold, mostly not visible might've played a role.
Patricia: my first pokie. P straita sling. Acquired at about 1.25" now about 2 inches in size, molted 2 or 3 times. I worry about her since she only eats crickets and no one will sell roaches small enough even though she likes those as well.
Hybris: H pulchripes sling named after Greek goddess of insolence wife of the God of war. A great spider with the adult coloration but a bit of a pet hole.
Persephone: my newest T pamphometeous sp Machala sling about 1.5 in size.
