    Hey guys, I am debating on buying another pet Tarantula but in the meantime I am thinking of something unique to name it. Got any ideas? What's your pet Tarantula's name?

    Well I actually have 4 tarantulas:
    • Dibella- she's a hybrid of a mexican black + gold redrump tarantula (Brachypelma albiceps) she's the one on my profile pic and that's after her first molt after I got her. When I purchased her she actually looked like this: [​IMG]
    • Echo- she's a mexican redrump with an attitude lol (Brachypelma vagans)
    • Ember- she's a mexican fireleg only about the size of a quarter right now legs and all (Brachypelma boehmei)
    • Ethereal- she's a metallic pink toe crazy little dancer :) (Avicularia metallica)

    Yeah I know right! I got Dibella first and then I got the other 3 at the same time and I thought it'd be cool if they all started with the same letter haha!

    My fireleg is named "DaNae", after my ex-wife. Luckily I was able to confirm she's a she after her last molt, or I might have had to choose a new name

    I love the name Dibella! It sounds like something from Twilight it is unique. I also like the name Wildfire. I still don't know what I'll be naming my next Tarantula maybe something that starts with the letter P.

    Aww thanks yeah my boyfriend named her actually after a character from elder scrolls the video game. Dibella is the goddess of beauty and love and she's definitely beautiful! And Brina I really like the names you've picked for your Ts!

    Thanks I think the only reason my fiance let me get so many is the names I was coming up with lol. Wildfire is the one T that my fiance picked himself (the GBB which is my profile pic) and he was thinking for days on what to name it and then I looked at it and said "Wildfire" (we had just watched Game Of Thrones) and he loved so much he agreed.

    Aragog is from Harry Potter II. I know what you mean, Brina. Now that I have a birdeater I'm thinking, "Darn, that should have been Aragog :)!"

    Since our critters travel around and meet so many children, a lot of them are named for familiar characters from books and movies. I'm also a kook for Harry Potter.
