A weekly show where we endeavor to answer one of your big questions. This week, “MadeofAwesome4ever” asks, “I’ve heard that butterflies were once called ‘flutterbys’, and that people mishearing/mispronouncing it changed it to ‘butterfly’. is this true? If not, why are butterflies called ‘butterflies’?”
