Flutterby Butterfly

    Since I took courses in English literature many years ago I have believed this story.

"Many years ago a certain Elizabethian wag decided  to call  the flutterby that flitted past a butterfly. The jest took off and people started calling the flutterbies butterflies. So strange the thought of butter flying that the joke was repeated util now the flutterby sounds strange."

According to the voices of Google this in not true, But what is true? I still think that flutterby sounds more accurate. Even though I listed my new whistle under butterfly. The the pressures that commerce buts on the imagination. If you would like to take a look at these whistle here is the link. BLUE BUTTERFLY WHISTLE
