    How did this name develop? Is someone trying to tell us something they know about wormholes and how simple they are? Is it Titor?

    its a metaphore, there is a really good episode of SG1 which explaines this actually

    It simple would theoretically appear to be like the hole of a worm in space. It'd be funnel shaped and then go into a circular tubing that then becomes again a funnel. That's simply the standard model.

    The intention is not "worms with holes", the hole is not in a worm.

    John Archibald Wheeler, 1957:
    This analysis forces one to consider situations...where there is a net flux of lines of force through what topologists would call a handle of the multiply-connected space and what physicists might perhaps be excused for more vividly terming a ‘wormhole’.
    C.W. Misner & J.A. Wheeler, 1957, Classical physics as geometry: gravitation, electromagnetism, unquantized charge, and mass as properties of curved empty space, Annals of Physics 2
    The term might spring from the way that a wormhole can be represented in an embedding diagram:

    It's "holes with worms," or better, "holes made my worms." The science-fiction hypothesis is that space is folded over on itself in a fourth dimension. The holes between the "folded surfaces" are analogous to the holes that worms (really caterpillars) make when they chew their way from one folded surface to another in a folded sheet.

    oh so it is not the holes on worms but more the worms that make holes by worming. would worming be what ocurrs in the throat. since the throat is the space in between is it not really space but more of a definition. is there a change in the throat?
