Today at work, Rob discovered a spider. She's a very cool spider. She's made her web in a hole in the beer garden, and she's put little trip wires all around it so that if any prey comes near she can come out and get it. I saw her take down a couple of fruit flies, but Rob saw her going for a wasp. She's very fast, and very brave (the wasp was bigger than her). We think she deserves a name.

The thing is, she's definitely a she. So Boris and Aragog are not really suitable. And Shelob is the name of a HUGE spider, not a little tough one.

My dad suggests Boudicca. Anybody got any other ideas?

I'm pretty sure Hagrid misgendered Aragog. She had all those babies!

Is "Charlotte" too obvious?
