    It has some mythological association .
    But I like the meaning , since the bees bring profit to everyone , but if somebody tries to hurt them they will resist even with their smallest needle even if they are the only one and have no group with them , they’ll try their best to resist or at least try something to protect themselves even if it’s small. In short they will bring you profit till you pass their red line. That’s what I like about the name.
