So Why Are They Called Bleeding Hearts?

I haven’t seen these flowers for a number of years but when we removed the invasive African rose in our garden a few months ago, I noticed this vine growing from a pot in a corner.  I love these tiny blooms, they make the garden colorful. Lamprocapnos spectabilis, that’s what they are called but don’t you think the common name Bleeding Heart is more lovely?
