Here are a few of the weird color names.Colour names can be, well, strange. Very strange. Take a look at the
names of lipstick and nail polish colours.
937c00 - "babypoop"From a marketing perspective, I personally think those names are
8f9805 - "babypoopgreen"
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.
Yes, colors names like "moon glow blue" or "blushing love pink" are just a marking idea so the colors would have names that would promote certain ideas or emotions. To be honest, I just made up these color names but there may be such names somewhere.
I did read a statement that there are specific standard of colors that use 20+ color names and then add adjectives to it for the "shades" of these small group of names. Names like pale_Pink, deep_Red, strong_Brown, vivid_Yellow, strong_Green, etc., etc..
What I also like is color names that looks like the color. AppleGreen, Banana, Bronze, Butter, Celery, Cocoa, Coffee, Cinnamon, Heather, Lemon, Lime, and other colors that people associate a "real object" name with a specific color. That would be a nice list to have. I may make one. Since LibreOffice shows the color names as you hover over them, having a list of colors with these "real objects" might help our users.
Names like allports, almondfrost, atomic, california, and others like this do have any real object that associate with these names.
Noe LibreOffice has names like Green3 and Yellow0. Since these colors are for Branding purposes, they do not need to have a more descriptive names. This is the same for the lists of specific colors like OSHA Safety Yellow. The OSHA colors are specific colors to be used for people's, or environmental, safety needs.
What is the URL for these two lists?
1 - Here is a very readable edited page for the weird colors.
2- The various USA standard colors, etc.
3 - Most of the gold and brown colors came from the below list. The original location of the PDF files is listed within this file.
liberoffice-na.us/resene-a--Alphabetical Color Chart.pdf <http://libreoffice-na.us/resene-a--Alphabetical%20Color%20Chart.pdf>
The USA and UK specific color lists are in the W3Schools.com web site.
They have a color list with this quote
"The Natural Color System (NCS) is the color standard (for interior design, decorating, and painting) in Sweden, Spain, Norway and South Africa."
"The NCS standard is unique because it is based entirely on the perception of colors (how eyes naturally see red, yellow, blue, green, white, and black)."
Those long lists of shades are for people who want/need very specificThat is why I am making small palettes that feature a specific color name and related colors. I know a number of people who need a better color than listed in the "standard.soc" and other palettes. When I am making posters with Writer, browns and other "included" palette colors many times do not look good printed out. So, I now have the time to start making the various palettes I would love to have even a year ago.
shades, for the colouring scheme.
Then there is the color palettes that have OSHA, Dept. of Transit, Military, etc., specific color lists. They may be useful for users.
The "w3schools" has resources for various areas of web page development.
