32 common color names for easy reference


I guess I confirm the stereotype that guys don’t know how color names. For instance, the color blue has many varieties but I call them all blue (light, dark, slightly darker, somewhere in between light and very light blue…). Even some of the purple-ish or green-ish colors get the label blue in my book.
