Registry Hives??:::  

From Raymond's blog:

Why is a registry file called a "hive"?

Because one of the original developers of Windows NT hated bees. So the developer who was responsible for the registry snuck in as many bee references as he could. A registry file is called a "hive", and registry data are stored in "cells", which is what honeycombs are made of.
