Unique color name

I’m looking for a unique color name for my baby girl. I like very out there unique color names that are actual colors. So I like Blue better than Violet, Ruby, Jade, etc that are more common names (even though they are beautiful too).
We narrowed our list to three:

  • Lavender
  • Lilac
  • Purple

I used to love Lavender but now I feel it might be too popular. Is Purple too out there? I am leaning more towards Lilac or Purple these days but not sure. I’d love to hear people’s opinions. Thank you

I don’t care for the sound of purple. If the gorgeous [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] is too popular, then [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] is perfection.

I also like:

I love Lilac and Lavender! :purple_heart: Oh, they are gorgeous! I think they’re right on the money for a more obscure color name. Totally lovely and lush.

Purple is one I really don’t enjoy as a name. The sound is too unpleasant to me. And nicknames… Purp won’t do, but that’s about all I can think of. I love the color, but I don’t think the word lends itself nicely to being a name; which is why it’s lovely you’ve got Lilac and Lavender as well!

Golden
Clementine

Rudyard
Scarlet
Emerald
Marron

Amethyst

Sunset, Sunrise, Sunshine

[name_f]My[/name_f] personal favorite of your options is [name_f]Lavender[/name_f], I think it’d be gorgeous on anyone! [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] would be my second favorite of those! I would also suggest [name_f]Wisteria[/name_f] if you’re wanting to stick with the purple theme, and it holds a floral touch like [name_f]Lavender[/name_f].

[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] and [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] are both very pretty and so dreamy. [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] isn’t too popular at all! As someone who has used nameberry frequently over the years sometimes think names are more popular/common than they are in real life. [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] for instance doesn’t rank on the top 1000 for any country or any year. Nameberry predicts it to be the #1000 girl name for 2028, but it’s just a prediction, so who really knows.

Not on the top 1000:
[name_f]Amaranth[/name_f]
[name_f]Amethyst[/name_f]

[name_f]Lilac[/name_f] is lovely - just the right balance between distinctive and unusual but ‘namey’ enough in vibe that it flows off the tongue.

[name_f]Magenta[/name_f] :heart_eyes: , Gold/Golden, [name_u]Crimson[/name_u], [name_u]Cerulean[/name_u], and [name_u]Cyan[/name_u] are some of my faves

[name_f]Lilac[/name_f] is a fave of mine. I find [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] pretty too but prefer as a middle. I don’t like the sound Purple - and I can imagine them getting called “Burp”.
