I've been trying to come up with names for my mechanical spiders, and I didn't see a thread listed in the sticky index. I'll list the names I have so far, in case someone else likes them better than I do. I have mainly gone for wordplay, it seems fitting for mechanical pets to me. Other suggestions would be appreciated.

Webcrawler
Debugger
Bugquasher
WATTercap (or WATTercob)

and the name I'm fond of:
nANSI

nANSI would be so perfect for a mech spider because of the shapeshifting spider trickster figure Anansi from West African folklore!

Some of my mech names:

Highbeams (for a mech strider), Zappertail (for the bunny), Torque, Clockwerk, Ricochet, Beakon (for the mech chicken)

something Byte something? nANSI is great! This topic is of special interest to me as I plan on having a dark iron with a lot of mech pets. I will name the mech parrot Pollytechnic.

Aw, Byte is cute! I like that.

If it helps at all, I named mine Cogweb. I never really use it truthfully, but since it was a spider I had to tame at least one.

Beakon is the absolute best name for a robochicken. I like using Byte. It also gives me an idea for a mechanical owl's name, Bitwise.

I named my 3 Spiders after planetary moons based on their coloring:

Caliban for the grey-bronze model

Kallisto (Callisto was restricted) for the copper-grey model

Ganymede for my gold model.

Oh Excellent! I was trying to use online scrabble programs to come up with others https://www.litscape.com/word_tools_enable_censored/words_in_the_letters.php. I knew 0xBAADF00D from way back (it's what I used in C for a starting value for decimal point numbers, so I didn't have unexpected results if I accidentally used data that was leftover in memory). But it's so much better to see a list other people have come up with. I'm digging FACEFEED.
