The origin of the name for an insect with colorful wings that is currently called a "butterfly", is a "FLY" that eats "Butter". Going even further back, the root of the name goes back to the dutch origin "Butter Shitter", because the dutch thought the insect poops on the butter.

Therefore, because of the incredibly non-sense name for this insect, I propose to re-name this beautiful insect as "Flutterby", which is a far more accurate name for it.

A mythical version of a butterfly. A flutterby only achieves the transformation from a crawler to a flyer by understanding the scope of his particular Tao.

The main character in Katrina Dominique 's poems and short story "Tao of a Flutterby".
Having finally reached the realization that his path was not as narrow as he once belived, the caterpillar woke up as a flutterby.

"From the very beginning our friend was shortsighted ! He was not a crawler, his destiny flighted.." from Tao of a Flutterby
