What is The Nymph and The Bee?

Behind the name “The Nymph and The Bee“: 

 I created The Nymph and The Bee”   to describe (Melissa). Based on the meaning behind my name.

According to Greek mythology,  Melissa was a nymph who discovered and taught the use of honey and from whom bees were believed to have received their name. She was one of the nymph nurses of Zeus.

“Go to the bee, and learn how diligent she is, and what noble work she produces, whose labours kings and private men use for their use, she is desired and honored by all, and though weak in strength she values wisdom and prevails.”    from the Old Testament
