Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously as Ladybirds (UK, Ireland, Australia, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand, India, Malta, parts of Canada), or Ladybugs (North America). Scientists increasingly prefer the names Ladybird beetles or Lady beetles, as these insects are neither birds nor bugs. Lesser-used names include Ladyclock, Lady cow, and Lady fly.

The name Ladybird originated in the Middle Ages when the insects were known as the beetle of Our Lady. They were named after The Virgin Mary, who in early religious paintings was often shown wearing a red cloak. The spots of the seven spot Ladybird were said to symbolise seven joys and seven sorrows. Common names in other European languages have the same association (the German name Marienkäfer translates to Marybeetle or, literally, Mary-chafer).
