If the tag did not have a 'name', it probably hasn't won any AOS or other similar awards - those always get a 'clonal name'. However, if the hybridizer really loved this particular hybrid, they could have registered it with the Royal Horticultural Society Hybrid List - the official source, so to speak. You can go to their website, put in the parentage where they tell you to, and voila - if it's registered, you'll find out. I won't get into trying to explain "grex" names or "epithets", since I find them rather confusing and am NOT the person to be giving instructions on this - I'm just passing along info that has been graciously given to me. If you have OrchidWiz, then you're way ahead of the game and you can use that to find out anything you want about it.

    By the way, IMHO, it's NOT an ordinary-looking paph - it's very beautiful, and a lovely example of what's usually referred to as a coloratum Maudiae-type paph - and yours even has a species parent - all the better. Take good care of this one - really good hybrid paphs aren't all that common. So far, looks like you're doing GREAT!

    Wow. That's a lot of information! But thank you very much! :-) Also, in regards to your photo advice later, I'll have to try that! I don't know if I have anything to use as a black background... well maybe a shirt would work. I'll have to give it a try! When I do, I'll update with those pictures and you can tell me what you think! :-)

    I'm looking forward to seeing your future photos posted. I've found that getting a good shot of my best orchids is at least as enjoyable and rewarding as growing them. And the paph bug bite is painless, although extremely powerful!
