ORIGINS OF DAHLIA NAMES

There are in excess of 57,000 different dahlias, and many names are not unique. 

Many of the more popular names are girl's first names.

In order to make their variety names unique, many raisers either use a prefix or a suffix, and these often have interesting origins in themselves.
