Flutterbees or Butterflies?

Why do we call them butterflies? Supposedly the name comes from the yellow coloration of the wings of many butterflies, or their butter like poop, or even the myth that they're actually witches that steal butter.
Regardless, why dont we call them flutterbees? I like to refer to them as flutterbees, it just makes more sense. They flutter when they fly, and they're well known pollinators like bees. Calling them flutterbees makes just as much if not more sense than calling them butterflies, yet I see no one doing this. Why didnt we just call them papilionoids or papillons before the dog breed was invented?? I wish more people called them flutterbees.
