Looking for ID for an old favorite

If anyone knows the name of this one, I would really appreciate it. It is just like one I have had for many years. Its a very hardy plant, but recently the blooms have changed color. One leaf I rooted bloomed with pale blue edges and also the plant bloomed in the dark color only the last time.
I am giving the link, since it is someone else's plant, but it is the same as mine.

I am sorry, I don't know how to make a link.
Thanks so much.

On this page there is a flower that looks quite like that one. You have to scroll down the page to find it.

Not sure if the leaf description matches your plant. You can try searching for African Violet Chimera and look at a few of the websites that show up.

By the way, that's a great flower. Very cheery and fun! I love it. *adds to list of flowers I want but don't have room for*

AND - I was Googling something unrelated about AVs and stumbled on a blog and the banner at the top looks like your plant. The information at the side says its Yukako.

I think I remembered the name, I am pretty sure it is "Chico".

You probably have Optimara Chico. Below is a link to a picture; the picture is obviously more purple than blue.
