I am an avid Linux network admin. one of my favorite versions of Linux is called Debian and they name all of their releases with names taken from the Toy Story movies.

I have decided, all the colonies/hives I take in from now on, just for chits and giggles, I will give a name from a movie or movie character.

I am thinking of creating sections of the main beeyard as a movie title, then all the hives can be named after characters from that movie or series.

Why am I doing this you asked?

Because I can and because I think it could be creative to try to keep coming up with unique names.

The first movies series I will start with will be Pirates of the Caribbean.

Can't wait to name a colony "Jack"

My colony's movie character name would be "Beatrix Kiddo" which is Uma Thurman's character in Kill Bill II. Now that is a fierce female character.

I'm trying to avoid washing the dishes so if I think of any other good ones, I'll let you know...

Go for it -- I named most of my hives and installed wooden nameplates on the hive covers. I named them for my sisters, my aunts, fairy tail characters, draq queens, my coworkers and even for great singers. I especially loved my hive for Queen Latifah.

You only live once and why not have a ball living it. ;):)

My bees die out so fast these days that I do not name them so that there is less of emotional distress when they give up the ghost. I do label their source looking for that "survivor strain". So far Weaver All Americans and ferals from 94010 are lasting the longest.

Weaver All Americans...it does seem that colonies with some adonsii blood are somewhat resistant to mites and ccd sickness or what ever it is.
