Doesn't 'Brahmacharini' mean bachelorette?  But the Navadurgas are all Parvati manifestations & therefore, Mahadev's wife, and so none of them are unmarried, right?  So how does Brahmacharini get to be one of Durga's names?

Brahmacharini refers to Parvati in that stage of life when she was unmarried and performing severe penance to please Shiva. That form of Parvati is invoked here.

Yes, eventually she does go on to marry Shiva, but that doesn't mean one cannot worship her in any of her other previous forms. 

Yeah, but did Parvati's Durga form exist while she was still unmarried to Mahadev?  I thought that all those other vibhutis of her would have only been invoked after her marriage, and therefore, Durga, Mahakali, and other Shaktis don't exist as her pre-marital forms, but only as her marital forms.

Or are they simply conflating Parvati & Durga here?

no...the fierce forms of Parvati are different from Brahmacharini...they became a part of her life after her penance was complete and b4 she was married to SHIVA i.e. when shiv agreed to acceot her as his wife!!! so, basically she has so many forms n she is worshipped in every form... except for PARVATI...

^^^ Parvati.  Nishumbha was killed by Chandi, and Shumbha was killed by the merged Vibhutis that combined into Ma Durga.

When Devas prayed to save them from Shumbh, Nishumbh, Paravti came there to bath in Ganga, she asked them ,whm are they praying to? At that time Ambika came out from her, told her they are praying to me. She was fair, 8 handed ( After killing Mahishasur 18 handed form of Durgama had merged in Parvati). Due to that Paravti turned dark.

This Ambika killed Shumbh, Nishumbh. From her Ma Kali appeared to kill Chanda, Munda & helped, Chandika, appearingg from Ambika, in killing Raktabeeja. Dhumralochan was killed by just " Hum" kar of Ambika. Even other Devas shaktis like Brhmani, Aindri, Varahi, Narsimhi, Koumari etc came to help Ambika, they all merged in her before killing Shimbh, when he told her I am fighting alone & you are fighting with your army.

also one question,did Guru Shkrachrya always remain guru to the asuras?i had read somewhere that Indradev had disguised himself and stayed with the Asuras,so when Shkrachrya came to know she gave up on them?
also how did Shukrachrya get planetary status?
