The name seems a common source of confusion, as most assume it's named after a furry spider. According to Dockins, Tarantella is a term for a sort of "mad dance". Great Gally line on steeper than usual terrain.

To make matters even more confusing the dance (Tarantella) is actually referencing the spider (tarantula)

Cheers!
