The second looks like Bel Royal. The first looks like paph platyphyllum hybrid. Which at one point was considered to be a stonei variety making this cross Bel Royal as well but not anymore.

Perhaps the one with the stonei resemblance is Bel Royal x stonei.

The other has kolopakingii features (color and lip formation) but the petals look a little too straight (like a roth but with less color). However that alone shouldn't eliminate to possibility. How big are the plants? If kolo-blood it should be "larger than normal".

Either way, both are quite lovely to view, nice job!
