The word Saxe is not English but is adopted from the French, where it means Saxony or Saxon. Saxony Blue was a universally-used synonym for Smalt as early as 1550. Likewise Bleu de Saxe has long been a synonym for Prussian Blue, but since 1753 Saxon Blue has been most familiar as a widely-used name for indigo extract.
Primrose is matched to flowers of that name growing in Surrey, England. Standardised in 1934.
