Arachne- from Greek: cognate with Latin araneus is a talented mortal weaver who challenged Athena, goddess of wisdom and crafts, into a weaving contest; this hubris resulted in her being transformed into a spider. There are many versions of the story's weaving contest, with each saying that one or the other won. Arachne lent her name to the taxonomic class Arachnida, which includes spiders.
