not unusual for a hybridizer or their family to have "garden names" for
unregistered irises that they especially like. In a perfect world the garden
names would not leave the garden. However this is not a perfect world and such
things do happen. I suspect Phelps Pride was a garden name to honor your friend.

Thanks to all of you who have searched or replied. Last year there was an
iris on ebay without the name of the hybridizer named Phelps Pride. I used to
work for a man named Phelps who brought irises to my desk during iris season.
I knew he was active in an iris club and was working on some seedlings. But he
has long passed away and when I saw that name, I wondered. Not too many with
the name Phelps out there. I wanted to get one as he was the one who
started my iris passion......thanks! Kerry
