      Hans Collinder added the comment:

      My grandfather was a teather in the swedish province Medelpad and he
      collected flowers. He wrote the Medelpads Flora in the end of the
      19:th century. My grandmothers name was Viola Collinder and when he
      found this flower he named it after her. That is the story of the
      name of the flower.
