Otome Pink SCCS., 1942, Classification of Camellias, p.4. This is an ambiguous name that has been erroneously applied to Otome as well as to Otome-shibori and its pink sport. Synonyms are ‘Otome Rose’, ‘Otome Rosea’, ‘Bleichroeder Pink’, ‘Pink Bleichroeder’, ‘Baronne de Ble­ichroeder Pink’, ‘Huntington Pink’, ‘Anne Galli’ and, ‘Casablanca’. Because of the confusion all these other names are rejected in favour of Casablanca.
