List Rules Vote up the funniest, most clever names to give a pet tarantula.

If you’re looking for some great tarantula name ideas, you’re in luck. This list of tarantula names includes a myriad of different name choices for your furry new eight-legged buddy. Tarantulas make excellent pets, and they deserve a moniker befitting this fact.

When thinking of a name for a tarantula, you can always come up with a few based on the spider’s mannerisms or appearance. For example, Barb might work well – because while tarantulas are generally mild mannered, if cornered of threatened, they have sharp barbs on their abdomens – which they’ll pull off with their legs and throw at you. See? Barb. Works like a charm. Fluffy or Fuzzy might also work well, since tarantulas are both. And Legs! Legs is perfect – though if you’d like to be more formal, Mr. Skinny Legs works well (he’s a character on Peppa Pig).

If you’re looking for some creative, clever, or cool names for pet tarantulas, go with fictional characters. Charlotte, Harry, and Spidey are all great choices – and super obvious. Consider Aragog (from Harry Potter), Little Miss Muffet, or Itsy/Bitsy from the children’s nursery rhyme.  Shelob, from a J.R.R. Tolkien book, is also a unique pet tarantula name.
