If you’re looking for a good name for a pet bee, or even for a slew of names you can name a bunch of bees that you keep, you’re in the right place!
While I love writing articles about names in general, I have to admit that some topics strike my fancy and make me smile way more than others.
Searching up names for pet bees while writing up this article absolutely made me feel this topic is up there in terms of being one of my favourites.
My absolute top slot probably goes to pet names for cacti, which is up on my gardening blog, Potting Plans, and that’s because of how ridiculously amusing some of the name recommendations were.
“Snuggles,” “Spike Lee,” & “Peter the Prick”‘? Yes please!
So many hilarious options for naming a cactus if you ever have a cactus or two as a houseplant that you’d like to name!
But back to the bees, because these were oh-so-cute as well. So many options out there, whether you’re looking for a single name or for a naming convention to name a slew of bees that all have a common theme.
Take for example names that start with the letter “B.” These make for absolutely adorable bee pet names, probably my favourite being “Beatrice,” “Beatrix,” and “Bernie.”
Then there are names that are based on the word “honey” or have “honey” in their meaning. Names like “Pamela,” and “Miele.” Super sweet, although they’re definitely not that common, and thus there aren’t too many options to choose from in this camp.
If you want something that yields a plethora of options but is also on the topic of bee, yet is not too literal like names that start with the “bee” sound, you can opt for a bunch of bees named after flowers, or plants & pollen themed names in general.
These are such pretty names, in my opinion. I love “Jasmine,” “Daphne,” “Violet,” “Azalea,” and “Dahlia” as names to begin with, but if I came across someone who used these names to name a bunch of pet bees, I’d die of happiness. It’s just such a sweet idea, I feel.
You can also use names that have a “Zzz” sound like the buzz of a bee in them as a naming convention. Names like “Liz” and “Jazzie” and “Hazel” are very cute names that fall into this category.
If you’re looking for something more on the funny side, there are a thousand and one puns (okay, not that many, but enough!) you can come up with combining popular culture references with bee references. Names like “Bumbledore” and “Obee Wan Kenobi” are some of my personal faves.
You can also do this with celebrity names. Take for instance, “Justin Beeiber,” “Cardi Bee,” and “Beeyonce.” Too cute and fun, in my opinoin!
