The rose „Kleiner Alfred“ (Little Alfred) was named after Peter and Leonie‘s first son. It seems a little bit strange to me, that Peter Lambert named a rose after his bride, bred with a rose introduced some years later, named after his baby.
I prefer the first parents as reported in Journal des Roses 1899, Aglaia X (Mignonette x Sh. Hibberd)

It seems more logical. I have changed the pollen parent from 'Kleiner Alfred' 1904 to (Mignonette 1875 x Shirley Hibberd 1874).
Thank you Dorothea.

What an unappealing name for such a lovely rose

It was named for the girl the breeder later married. I'd say it wins hands down over some modern names which are downright tacky.

Léonie and Eugènie were daughters of Jean-Baptiste Lamesch, who had established a rose nursery in Dommeldingen, Luxembourg. So, it is another of those rose Family stories.

Lambert raised and named the rose in 1899. He named one Leonie Lamesch, and a second, Eugenie Lamesch. Two years later, he married Leonie.

They went to St Petersburg for their honeymoon, and were invited by the Tsar to attend a court ball at The Hermitage, which was decorated with Lambert-bred roses. That's quite a compliment!

Research by a Heritage Roses in Aus member, who wrote a series on major 19th century rose breeders for our Journal. And I've just found it among the References! I should learn to look there first.

...and I have seen such a sort as Leonie Lamesch growing in an Essex garden 6-ft to 7-ft high.

Per Wikipedia, Peter Lambert married Leonie Lamesch in 1900. He named the rose, Leonie Lamesch, for his future wife.
