OT: Pink iris name

From: Irisborer@aol.com

Hmmmmm the dilemma is easily solved!  First, since I do love word games, I 
was playing with various "pink" names....  Panther Pink, Conjunctivitis (aka 
Pinkeye - I do work in a hospital, afterall....).

But, the easy way out is to give your iris a "house" name - such as John 
White does (DIRIGO), or Dana Borglum (SENECA), or .. in daylilydom, Pauline 
Henry does (SILOAM).

By putting the house name first, you not only can use whatever name strikes 
your fancy... but you also alert people instantly that you're the hybridizer 
of that iris.

Kathy Guest... who appreciates a great name, like Ensata Garden's newest pink 
JI called PINKERTON....
