Say Hello to Portia Odessa Goldbottom!!

Say Hello to Portia Odessa Goldbottom!!
WE HAVE WINNERS FOR THE SPIDER NAME CONTEST!!!
Thank you all for your comments, favorites and to all of you who tossed a name (or more) into the hat! You guys really know how to make my day!!

19 people submitted entries:
jofolo: Othello • Stephanie Calhoun: Odessa • JimbobEdsel: Hubert G. Glowerby • koaxial: Shelob • Nick Stewart: The Bard • Old Owl: Boris • Christina Port: The Golden Spinner • Levina de Ruijter: Daddy Long Legs • Dave Hilditch: Boris • tiabunna: Sir Walter • philanker2012: George Clooney • Angela Healey: George, Fred, Sarah • James E410: Incy Wincy • Trevor Grant: Fabulous Pharaoh • Cathlon: Octivia Goldbottom • Shuttering Yukon: Oh Gross (She is bad and evil and I am going to wish her into the corn field!) • Fran Wylie: Porsche, Camero • Pam J: Miss Rainbow Ballerina Silk Stockings of Briens-Manor • Deborah Lynn: Juliet

The names I picked were "Porche", from Fran Wylie (which I changed the spelling to Portia), Odessa from Stephanie Calhoun, and Goldbottom from Cathlon! I also want to give a special honorable mention to Pam J for her extravagant and awesome "Miss Rainbow Ballerina Silk Stockings of Briens-Manor", and of course, a huge round of applause to all of you for the super names--it was REALLY HARD TO PICK and I loved them all!!!

That is a wide variety of possible names for such a beautiful spider! I'm glad you didn't go with Oh, Gross! LOL! And, I'm glad you changed the spelling on the Portia part of her name - I think it fits her better than the spelling I had! I like the name you came up with from all the suggestions :)
