Colour names can be, well, strange. Very strange. Take a look at the
names of lipstick and nail polish colours.

From a marketing perspective, I personally think those names are
terrible. OTOH, those colours are almost as bad looking as the names
are. Regardless, those are common names for those specific shades.

Worse luck: A few years ago, they were fairly popular with builders
doing large condo projects. So long as the purchaser doesn't know the
name of the colour on the can of paint, the sale will go through.

What is the URL for these two lists?

Those long lists of shades are for people who want/need very specific
shades, for the colouring scheme.
