I'm not sure I understand your question.  Blue whales are one species of
whale, and they are the largest animals that have ever lived on Earth.  The
longest one ever measured was 33.58 meters (110 feet) long.  The heaviest
one ever weighed was a 27.6 meter female that weighed 190 metric tonnes.  If
either one of those whales had a name, they never told humans what it was :-)

Cheers,
