Not stated. The name of the genus is composed by the prefix eu-, meaning 'true' or 'genuine', followed by the name of the genus Spio Fabricius, 1785, type of the family Spionide Grube, 1850, and probably it intended to highlight the closeness between the two genera: "Body as in Spio [...]. Bristles as in Spio" (McIntosh, 1915: 176).
