Plus, the big difference between the two is that the Blackarachnia character is a Femme Fatale, while Airachnid is a Sadist.
Plus, they didn't want anybody to sympathize with her. Blackarachnia was always the good bot, turned bad, with a hint of redemption in her. Airrachnid was intended to be nothing but bad and they didn't want any preconceived notions about the character based on name.
