What was the original name of the butterfly?
B) Winged Beauty
The word “butterfly” is believed to have originated from the Middle English term “buttorfloege,” which means “butterfly.” However, there is a popular linguistic theory that suggests it may have been a mispronunciation of “flutterby” due to the insect’s characteristic flight pattern. Option A, “Flutterby,” represents this linguistic theory. Options B, C, and D are not the original names of butterflies.
