What's in a name?

Plant breeders often assign a name to a particular plant due to the requirements of record keeping. For instance, a hybrid between A. forgetii and A. magnificum might become "magetii" in the breeder's stud book. A name derived by a contraction of the parent's names often helps to remind growers of its origin. I wonder how Bob McColley referred to his hybrids? What is that hybrid going to be named and who shall decide? Where are the people who care about "what's in a name?"
