[name]Lyndsay[/name]: Nope, not all [name]Chris[/name]'s are the same! But I’ll start with you. [name]LYNDSAY[/name] is different than [name]Lindsay[/name] is different than [name]Lindsey[/name], just so everyone knows! Your [name]Lyndsay[/name] is a mix of sunshine yellow and dark marigold orange, in slightly blended horizontal stripes. The texture reminds me of a petal, soft to the touch. [name]CHRIS[/name] as it normally appears is a shade of red, however your [name]Chris[/name] is burgundy mixed with forest green around the edges. It has a feel like the skin of an apple. [name]DASHIELL[/name]/[name]DASH[/name] is very interesting, since it has a half-and-half mesh of yellow and turquoise, which sort of mingles in the middle to create bright green. If you cut off the -iell and just call him [name]Dash[/name], the mixture reduces to maybe 5% turquoise and 95% yellow. The texture is reminiscent of terry-cloth, or the loop side of a towel. [name]KATHERINE[/name] is similar to the name [name]Levi[/name] (IDK why) with a mix of medium tan and rusty orange-red. But if you cut it off and make it [name]Kitty[/name], it retains the rusty color and the beige turns rosebud pink. [name]WILLIAM[/name] is a dark, dusky brown with a hint of emerald green, while [name]BILL[/name] cuts off the green tone entirely and becomes totally coffee-toned, like [name]Bridget[/name].
[name]Penelope[/name] ” [name]Orange[/name], with hints of red (think of a ripe mango). It has a dimpled texture.
[name]Clementine[/name] ” Surprisingly NOT orange! :o) [name]Clementine[/name] is pink with hints of cherry red and neon green, similar to [name]Lucy[/name].
[name]Marigold[/name] ” I didn’t even see this until after I wrote your name’s color! [name]Marigold[/name] is similar in color to the dark orange in [name]Lyndsay[/name], with swirls of eggplant purple and the texture of watercolored silk.
[name]Magnolia[/name] ” [name]Magnolia[/name] is a vibrant magenta, pink with lots of crimson mixed in.
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Alice[/name] ” Very cute combo :o) [name]Zoe[/name] is a sort of neon purple on its own, which is toned down by the muted turquoise of [name]Alice[/name]. Likewise, [name]Alice[/name] has a sort of smooth, nubby texture while [name]Zoe[/name] is shiny like glass. They definitely tone each other down and are lovely together and apart.
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] ” Although I love [name]Mary[/name], I admit that its color is a combination of brown and green like mossy earth. And [name]Scarlett[/name], unfortunately, IS red — color names have a bad habit of throwing me off!
[name]Elizabeth[/name]/[name]Betsey[/name] ” [name]Elizabeth[/name] is a mix of medium grey and navy, with black and white speckles — like if someone threw dark blue paint on a granite stone. [name]Betsey[/name], on the other hand, is a much paler powder blue with the same black and white speckles.
[name]Gemma[/name] ” Deep violet, with just a hint of pure white that doesn’t mix with the other color; shiny and hard like glass (see [name]Zoe[/name]).
[name]Pearl[/name] ” Muted lavender and grey, with the texture of fogged glass. This is very similar to my name, [name]Kaitlin[/name].
[name]Belle[/name] ” I can’t help but picture pastel, butter yellow with hints of powder pink, although I suspect that’s left over from my Disney [name]Princess[/name] days!
[name]Cecily[/name] ” The opposite of [name]Lucy[/name], bright green with splotches of pink like they were watercolor painted together.
**Your girls names tend to lean more toward jewel tones, especially purples!
[name]Lincoln[/name]/[name]Link[/name] ” Medium green, like the surface of a still pond, but with the hollow, glassy texture of an empty bottle.
[name]Griffin[/name] ” [name]Brown[/name] mixed with beige and white — in some places smoothly blended and in others in stark contrast to one another. This name does actually bring up the connotation of feathers, tightly packed together like a firm down pillow.
[name]Finn[/name] ” [name]Bright[/name] teal mixed with a hint of medium grey. I do imagine this name to have a slippery texture, but I think more like the skin of a stingray than a literal ‘fin’.
[name]Frederick[/name]/[name]Red[/name] ” [name]LOVE[/name] this. The nickname fits, in this case, because [name]Frederick[/name] itself is a rusty red almost like [name]Levi[/name]. The difference is that [name]Frederick[/name] has literal barbs of dark silver stuck in it, like barbed wire wrapped around a cedar-colored fence, but with the texture of velvet and thorns.
[name]Angus[/name] ” A heady mix of green and brown, similar to [name]Mary[/name].
[name]August[/name]/[name]Oz[/name] ” [name]August[/name] is similar in color family to [name]Lyndsay[/name] but not in style. [name]Red[/name] and yellow are mixed up like watercolor paints but with a multi-layered texture like tiers of tye-dyed silk. [name]Oz[/name] is just yellow, with a little hint of an orange edge, like the skin of a peach.
[name]Wesley[/name]/[name]Wes[/name] ” Dark green mixed with a sapphire-like blue — not navy but not royal either. I think of swirling oceans and dark facial features.
[name]Dodge[/name] ” [name]LOVE[/name] this too! This is a family name for me so it’s even more special. It’s not particularly striking, but it’s solid and handsome in itself. The color is a medium brown with veins of black, and it has the texture of wet earth.
Enjoy them! :o)
