I'm slowly accumulating my army of spiders on my Undead Hunter, and I wanted to brainstorm some good names for them. :) I have quite a few in mind, but if anyone can suggest some good words or names that really suit a spider, please share. :D The more to pick from the better. Just anything that comes to mind that would suit.

Thanks!

Ungoliant and Shelob are two spider names that always come to mind for me. They are from the LoTR Mythos.

Alright, google to the rescue!!! :D

Anansi is one I've heard mentioned a few times: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anansi You could also use Nanzi, which is mentioned in that article as the Curaçao name for Anansi.

Arachne challenged Athena to a weaving contest and won, but I'm sure you already thought of that name.

Tsuchigumo are part of a Japanese myth:
Quote:
The Tsuchigumo (translated as "Earth spiders")[13] of Japan, were both a mythical ethnic group, believed to live in the Japanese Alps until at least the Asuka period, and a mythical, supernatural creature faced by the character Minamoto no Raiko, although the term was also loosely used for bandits and thieves. The Tsuchigumo were said to live in caverns beneath the mountains and the Tsuchigumo in the Minamoto no Raiko legend were able to take the visage of a boy or a woman depending on the version of the story.
(http://tribes.tribe.net/thcsociety/thre ... a2cef9a838)

Then there's Aragog, of course.

The link to the quote about the Tsuchigumo has a couple more, but really, I doubt this is anything you haven't already thought of... Hmm. *digs some more*

This is an "incomplete and inauthoritative" list of spider names: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sp ... mmon_names
A couple stand out as possible names at first glance:
Araneidae
Aurantia
Avicularia
Argyrodes
Vespera
Anastera
Venatoria
Kaiba

There are tons more on that list of course. Hope it helps!

I think a pair of spiders named Creepy and Crawlie would be cute, but that's probably because I'm arachnophobic and can't bring myself to use the spider pets anyway. :lol:
