Taylor Swift Has A New Species Named After Her Phys.org has discovered a new species of millipede in the Appalachian Mountains, and the scientist who discovered the species, have decided to name it after Taylor Swift. “This new millipede species is Nannaria swiftae: I named it after @taylorswift13! I’m a big fan of her music, so I wanted to show my appreciation by naming this new species from Tennessee after her. A high honor!” No word from Taylor regarding the “honor” If you could have a species of an animal named after you, what would you like it to be? If you could name a new species, what would you name it?
