Generally, the better established and longer reigning a king was, the more scarabs are found bearing one or more of his names. Most scarabs bearing a royal name can reasonably be dated to the period in which the person named lived.
However, there are a number of important exceptions. Scarabs are found bearing the names of pharaohs of the Old Kingdom particularly of well-known kings such as KhufuKhafra and Unas.

It is now believed these were produced in later periods, most probably during the Twenty-fifth Dynasty or Twenty-sixth Dynastywhen there was considerable interest in and imitation of the works of great kings of the past.
Many of these scarabs do date from the long and successful reign of this great warrior pharaoh, or shortly thereafter but many, perhaps the majority, probably the scarab beetle series not.
Like all pharaohs, Thuthmosis was regarded as a god after his death. Unlike most pharaohs his cult, centered on his mortuary temple, seems to have continued for years, if not centuries.

As a result, many scarabs bearing the inscription Men Kheper Re are likely the scarab beetle series commemorate Thuthmosis III but may have been produced hundreds of years later.
Later pharaohs adopted the same throne name including Piye of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty, BCE and this can lead to confusion.
The hieroglyphs making Men Kheper Re seem to have become regarded as a protective charm in themselves and were inscribed on scarabs without any specific reference to Thuthmosis III.
It can be doubted that in many cases the carver understood the meaning of the inscription but reproduced it blindly. On a lesser scale the same may be true of the throne name of Rameses II BCE User Maat Re "the justice of Ra is powerful"which is commonly found on scarabs which otherwise do not appear to date from his reign.
The birth names of pharaohs were also popular names among private individuals and so, for example, a scarab simply bearing the name "Amenhotep" need not be associated with any particular the scarab beetle series who also bore that name.

The significance of a scarab bearing a royal name is unclear and the scarab beetle series changed over time and from scarab to scarab.
Many may simply have been made privately in honour of a ruler during or after his lifetime. Some may also have been royal gifts. In some cases scarabs with royal names may have been official seals or badges of office, perhaps connected with the royal estates or household, others, although relatively few, may have been personal seals owned by the royal individual named on them.
As the king fulfilled many different roles in ancient Egyptian society, so scarabs naming a pharaoh may have the scarab beetle series a direct or indirect connection with a wide range of private and public activities.
