Etymology
Eustreptospondylinae is derived from the Greek "eu" (good, well, true), "streptos" (turned, reversed) and "spondylos" (vertebra), and the Latin "inae" (denoting a sub family, in this case of Megalosauridae), named for group anchor Eustreptospondylus whose remains were originally assigned to Streptospondylus.
