Meaning:Jumping spider genus; To eat tapu things
Rarahu is a Pacific Islander girl's name with ties to Samoa. This name is shared with a class of jumping spiders that are found exclusively in Samoa. It could have been inspired by Pierre Loti's book Rarahu, which is a Tahitian word meaning "to eat tapu things," with tapu referring to something that is sacred or holy. With this striking name, you can encourage your little one to feel connected to the natural world around her and find an appreciation for even its leggiest residents.
