Drones -unethical- naming man-made killing machines after our threatened harmless wild creatures?


Its very telling of the times we are in,you mention the word Drone to anybody,or type it in on line -(Google search)-the first image that comes up is of the man-made human - destroyers. Yet its probable the inventors of these killing machines pinched the name from The Drone Bee-(an important part of our natural world now becoming more scarce each day.) Is it right and proper to use names of killing machines after our threatened wildlife (let alone having them at all)?

    Interesting ,Yes I remember working at British Aerospace and remember well several of the aircraft named after animals-Jaguar-also Am I correct in saying the Nazis invented the fore-runners to the modern Drone -V1 ,V2 ,V3?
