In the Victorian language of flowers, the name Pansy derived from the French word "penser" for " to think." It represented the idea that one would think of and consider the memory of a loved one who departed. But sometimes it was an indication of love interest between a couple. As courting was very formal in Victorian society, one could offer a potential love interest a pansy to indicate that they were being admired and thought of. The motif was often incorporated into mourning jewelry, which was a popular trend of the era.
