Greek mythological name given to forest nymph that was turned into a bee when caught saving young Zeus from his father, Cronus.

Also influenced by singer and songwriter Melissa Manchester when her debut album was released in 1973. The name has many variations, but most trendy when spelled with "z", "ah", "y" or pronounced with the long "ee" sound. A Honey Bee
