Centipedes have one set of legs per body segment and millipedes have two sets per segment.

Millipede means "thousands of feet". Has two pairs or four legs on most body segments.

Centipede means "hundreds of feet". Has one pair or two legs on each body segment.

Although neither has anywhere near "hundreds of feet" the centipede generally has fewer legs than a millipede. Millipedes are non-toxic, but centipedes do contain some venom that can cause irritation.
