Names Of Species Of Bees 

Of the 20,000 species of bees, several types stand out. As they differ in appearance, the species are identifiable even if the males and females of each group blend in with the crowd. The real names ascribed to bees relate to species.

  • Honeybees. Commonly found in gardens where they pollinate flowers and crops, honeybees are a vital part of the food chain. Measuring ½” to ¾,” these brown or black and yellow striped bees that visit years are female workers who move the pollen from their legs and bodies into little pouches or pollen baskets. There are multiple types of honeybees as well.
  • Bumblebees. Also black and yellow and twice the size of honeybees, these fuzzy bees also collect pollen from flowers. The noise they make inside a flower gives them their colorful name
  • Africanized honeybees – commonly called “killer bees. Performing the same role as regular honeybees, the Africanized strain of bees is more aggressive.
  • Carpenter or wood bees. While these bees bore holes in wood and steal pollen from small flowers, they also pollinate larger plants and flowers.
  • Mason bees. Blue, dull green, and black in color, these bees pollinate spring-flowering fruit and nut trees.
  • Leafcutter bees. Black with white hairs, these bees pollinate wildflowers, fruits, and vegetables. Commercial growers use them to pollinate crops such as alfalfa, blueberries, carrots, and onions.
  • Sweat bees. Tiny bees that love human perspiration, these bees that are black to metallic blues and greens, with copper and blue overtones. They busily pollinate flowering plants.
  • Blueberry bees. Sized like a honeybee, blueberry bees specialize in pollinating blueberries.
  • Squash bees. Black, tan, or orange in color with black, white, or tan stripes, these bees specialize in pollinating squash in the early morning.

Bees are related to ants, wasps, and hornets. While ants, like bees, are attributed to have human characteristics such as industry, cooperation, and motivation, wasps and hornets are only associated with anger. A person might be “busy as a bee,” “industrious as an ant,” but only “mad as a hornet.”

Bee Movie Characters

Bees have buzzed their way into movies, especially in The Bee Movie with Jerry Seinfeld. Unwilling to accept his fate as a one-time sperm donor, Barry B. Benson put his education at Bee College to use as an accountant and bee activist.

Other movies with bees as important characters include:

  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Jupiter Ascending
  • The Secret Life of Bees
Bees depicted in Jupiter Ascending

Bee names that might have a future in movies, cartoons, books, and other media used by popular culture include:

  • Bee-yonce
  • BEEthoven
  • Buzz Lightyear (already famous from Toy Story)
  • Cardi Bee
  • Justine Bee-ber
  • McBee
  • OBEE-Wan KenoBEE

In real life, we already have a “Sting” and a Beyonce known as “Queen Bey.”

Bee Video Game Characters

Video games such as Minecraft and the Legend of Zelda include honey and bees in the game storylines, with most games stressing the propensity to sting humans. Games with Bee characters include:

In Minecraft, at least the bees get names and personalities.

Bee Business Names

Names for TV and movie names, as well as names for businesses, tend to play on the “bee,” which sounds like the letter “B,” the buzzing sound, or the residence in the hive. They might also want to associate themselves with the anthropomorphic qualities of bees, such as working hard.

Honey businesses, beekeeping supplies, bee suppliers, exterminators, and more, will often brand their business and search for domain names that assist in branding their business.

This is also true with salons  that offer waxing, candle shops, firms that promote the many uses for beeswax, and businesses catering to women exalted as the “Queen Bee.”

“Honey Do,” a reference to jobs assigned by one spouse to another, is useful for maintenance and service companies.

Names That Play On The Letter “B”

Although it is not feasible to individually name bees in nature, there are many human names that start with “B” that could be part of a nickname that incorporates “bee” or other words associated with the little flyer,

Aside from names such as “Beatrice” or “Buzz” that bring bees to mind, other “B” names might become bee-related nicknames like “Busy Bailey” or “Honey Bubba.” You can mark your child’s room as the “Ben-Hive” or call him or her a diminutive such as “Blakely-Bee” or “Bumble Brad.” Some names that might lend themselves to nicknames like that include:
