Eleanor Roosevelt is a dark purple bitone but your photo shows a fairly bright, much lighter plumish color.  That is why I suggested Julia Marlowe.  Try this site:  


and scroll down to the picture and see what you think.  It may not be the iris that you have, but I think it is more in the colors of the pictures you sent.  (You may have to copy and paste as it doesn't seem to automatically provide a link)

This is a photo of Eleanor Roosevelt.  I am sure the Debbie's is not it.  It is possibly Julia Marlowe.  I don't have a photo of it but there may be one online.
