Introducers of new Roses are earnestly recommended to give their new varieties names that are not too long. It is always well to have the name somewhat descriptive of the characteristics of the variety. Exceptionally long names are objectionable, and are frequently abbreviated in various ways, bringing about confusion; for instance: In 1880 M. A. Levet, of Lyons, France, introduced into commerce "Financailles de la Princess Stephanie et l'Archduchess Rudolphe." Such a name was absurd, and soon appeared in the various catalogues as "Princess Stephanie," "Stephanie," "Financailles de Stephanie," "Stephanie et Rudolphe," etc., etc. Members of the Society are requested to forward to the Committee any other instances of synonyms which may come under their notice, so that the matter may be investigated and the results embodied in future reports.
