A name for every colour

Hello berries.

[name]Little[/name] challenge for the day-
I was interested to see if other people associate names with colours in the same way that I do.
Other than the obvious- [name]Violet[/name], [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Scarlett[/name]- do the rest of you do it?
For me, navy [name]Virginia[/name] is a chestnut brown colour, [name]Paloma[/name] is a pale pink and [name]Patrick[/name] is teal/green colour. Haha

Which namess would you associate with these colours:

[name]Red[/name]:

[name]Orange[/name]:

Yellow:

Dark [name]Green[/name]:

[name]Light[/name] blue:

Dark [name]Blue[/name]:

[name]Indigo[/name]:

[name]Violet[/name]:

[name]Brown[/name]:

[name]Beige[/name]:

White:

([name]Beige[/name] for me is the worst colour for names, I admit. Names for me which are ‘beige’ are [name]Karen[/name], [name]Pamela[/name] and [name]Tom[/name])

[name]Hope[/name] someone else enjoys doing this!

Neat! This is fun, and also helps me with name associations, not only categorizing my own, but seeing what others associations are of names that I potentially may use! Great idea :slight_smile:

I associate colour with all sorts of things (it all started with days of the week). Most of the names I strong associate colours with are based on their first letter or a prominant letter within them.

[name]Red[/name]: [name]Mary[/name]

[name]Orange[/name]: [name]Olivia[/name]

Yellow: [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Christopher[/name], [name]Sarah[/name]

[name]Green[/name]: [name]Ivy[/name] (obvious reasons) I don’t have many green names although it’s my favourite colour - Maybe becuase it’s rare in my brain.

[name]Blue[/name]: [name]Luna[/name], [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Flora[/name]

[name]Indigo[/name]/[name]Violet[/name]: (I’m just going to combine these as purple) [name]Jasmine[/name]

[name]Brown[/name]: [name]Barnaby[/name] (though there aren’t many brown names)

[name]Beige[/name]: None. Nothing in my brain comes out beige

White: Can’t think of any

[name]Pink[/name]: Most [name]Rose[/name] names (though they’re often red too). I don’t do a lot of pinks.

[name]Black[/name]: Can’t think of any

A lot of names seem almost three colours at once. [name]Robert[/name] for example is initially red but the more I look at it the more it seems yellow. Purple and green go together in my head and some names have an initial colour but others underneath. I suppose it’s not so much a visual thing as an emotional thng.

[name]Red[/name]: [name]Scarlett[/name], [name]Heidi[/name]

[name]Orange[/name]: [name]Harper[/name], [name]Harlow[/name]

Yellow: [name]Riley[/name], [name]Layne[/name]

Dark [name]Green[/name]: [name]Avalon[/name], [name]Constance[/name]

[name]Light[/name] blue: [name]Delphine[/name], [name]Amity[/name]

Dark [name]Blue[/name]: [name]Evelyn[/name], [name]Ivy[/name]

[name]Indigo[/name]: [name]Violet[/name], [name]Cassia[/name]

[name]Violet[/name]: [name]Florence[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name]

[name]Brown[/name]: [name]Indiana[/name], [name]Kit[/name]

[name]Beige[/name]: [name]Bay[/name], [name]Isla[/name]

White: [name]Carrie[/name], [name]Angelina[/name]

[name]Pink[/name]: [name]Anastasia[/name], [name]Rosalie[/name]

[name]Black[/name]: [name]Darcy[/name], [name]Devyn[/name]

@kiki- thats so interesting about not associating green with that much because its your favourite! totally relate to that.
Its funny that [name]Caroline[/name] is yellow for you; for me it is 100% orange!

Its strange how different people’s associations are about these things.
The ones I’d agree with from your comments/ my favourite ones are:

[name]Red[/name]: [name]Hattie[/name], [name]Penelope[/name]
Dark [name]Green[/name]: [name]Sylvie[/name]
[name]Light[/name] [name]Blue[/name]: [name]Iris[/name], [name]Amity[/name]
Dark [name]Blue[/name]: [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Maren[/name]
[name]Indigo[/name]: [name]Vera[/name], [name]Cassia[/name], [name]Vivienne[/name]
[name]Violet[/name]: [name]Felicity[/name], [name]Sophie[/name] (me too dillonsfan1. its the violetest name there is…except [name]Violet[/name] itself that it)
[name]Brown[/name]: [name]Kit[/name], [name]Barnaby[/name], [name]Oakley[/name], [name]Ruth[/name] (this one is fast becoming my favourite naming colour!)
[name]Beige[/name]: [name]Ashley[/name] (for me this is the definition beige)
[name]Pink[/name]: [name]Catherine[/name], [name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Black[/name]: [name]Caleb[/name] (hit the nail on the head)

Yeah, colours come in groups for me too kiki. Like red and brown go together for me a lot. [name]Henry[/name] is a red/brown name.
And then my kids names have really strong colours for me, and always have done.
[name]Cordelia[/name]- bottle green
[name]Harriet[/name]- red red red
[name]Beatrix[/name]- darker red
[name]Lionel[/name]- golden yellow

Oh, love [name]Juna[/name]. Was considering it, but just didn’t fall in love with it for us.
