So, What’s With the Name Ariadne?

Ariadne is the name of a princess in Greek mythology. She gave Theseus red thread from the fleece she was spinning and he used it to escape from the labyrinth after killing the minotaur.

Basically, a spinner. I didn’t want to use the name Arachne (also from Greek mythology) because she got turned into a spider. Ick.
