The word 'Deseret' is defined by the Book of Mormon as honeybee. (See Ether 2:3)

Deseret was the name of a territory or state proposed by the Mormon pioneers, which covered parts of modern day Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California.

In pioneer times, the word Deseret was almost used synonymously with the word Zion - it was the home of the Saints.

Deseret was also used to name things of Mormon origin, such as the Deseret Alphabet or the Deseret News.

Today, Deseret is still used in the names of companies or organizations affiliated with the Mormon Church, including Deseret Book, Deseret Industries, Deseret News, and Deseret Transportation.

The state of Deseret, proposed by Mormon pioneers, covered much the area that is now Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, and Arizona. "Mormon" is not a language, so deseret is not 'Mormon' for honeybee. Deseret is one of the few non-English words found in the Book of Mormon, where it is defined as honeybee.
