origin of "Wedgwood"

Aren't all Dutch iris cultivars registered with a central Dutch
registry (in fact, all bulbous iris)?  And the others registered
with AIS (eg the bearded iris)?

If so, I would imagine that the registry office would have more
information on the origination of the name.

FYI, "Wedgwood blue" is a colour referring to a pastel blue tint
Wedgwood coloured some of its chinaware with.  Thus, "Wedgwood"
is actually a colour (though derived from the Wedgwood china
company), and the iris merely named for its colour.
