    I've got a BIG problem with naming my monsters.
    There are 3 names i've got a problem with. (These names are Dragon Quest III styled, so i want a Dragon Quest III NES-styled name! Less than 10 chars!)
    BEE
    Just unoriginal. I want a new name for it.

    DARKBEE
    Don't like it either.
    DARKBEE is just a recolor of the bee above.
    STINGER
    Yup. I just want names for my bee enemies.
    STINGER is yet again, a recolor of the bee above.
    Here are examples of Dragon Quest III enemy names:
    BLACKRAVEN
    HUMANABAT
    MADHOUND
    RAMMORE
    FROGGORE
    CATULA
    DEMONITE
    AVENGERBEAK
    TORTRAGON
    LIONHEAD
    HOLOGHOST
    MAGIWYVERN
    SWORDOID

    Latin name for bee is Apis

    So for the regular bee I'd say Buzzapis
    Dark bee I'd say Umbrapis (Umbra is Shadow)
    Stinger I'd say Ictapis (Ictus is Sting)

    But if u have to name them like Dragon Quest

    BUMBLEBUZZ
    DUSKBUZZ / SABLEBUZZ
    BLADEBUZZ

    Well, the purple one uses poison, the white one uses paralysis and ice, and the red one is just an apple.

    Make it have a second form of a bull :D

    But in all seriousness, Apis is a deity so if the name is added with anything it wouldn't be the same, or so I think

    Clark Ashton Smith invented names by rearranging the syllables in the names and surnames of his acquaintances. When I need to come up with a name, I just switch the keyboard layout and type some word, for example cerf,kzlm = Ceraph Kazalum.
    This is primitive, but I like it.

    I kind of think that the name 'Majorbear' for the Ursamouse is pretty neat--like Ursa Major, but also that it's a bear, and also since Ursa Major is supposed to represent a bear. Plus it sounds neat. I'm not sure about the others, though.

    Yeah, I would stay away from using anything related to "apis" for the bee names. I mean...I see where it's coming from, it just...well, it's got the sound "piss" in the name. Umbrapis could literally read as "shadow urination" and I just can't take that seriously. Maybe something like Buzzthrill, Buzzkill and Buzzdrill would be better. I'm not the best at naming stuff myself but I really would stay away from the apis/piss thing.

    APPLEJERK(it's a pun on applejack)
    RED MALICIOUS (get it, like red delicious?) /too long
    HESPERICREEP (the golden apples of Hesperides) /too long
    BRUTE ROT (pun on fruit rot)
    WORMTUNG (because I'd expect an apple monster's tongue to be a nasty worm)

    GIANTSNAIL:
    CHAINSNAIL (like Chainmail)
    SHELLSPAWN (hellspawn)
    SLUGHELM (what is a snail but a slug in a helmet?)

    HIPOROPE:

    BADNOOSE (bad news / noose)
    D. DUTCH (double dutch)

    POISONPLANT:
    HEMLOCK (it's a poisonous plant)
    NITESHADE (also poisonous)
    POISONOAK (ditto)
    POISONIVY (double ditto)

    CHOKEOAK (sounds scary, right?)

    Too long names: Mourning Gory, Violents,
