THIS LIST IS NOT THE AUTHORITY ON COLOR NAMES. There are so many color names out there. Just because a name's not on here doesn't mean it's not necessarily a color name!
2
In addition, none of the names in canon will be added to this list. If a name on this list or a variant on said name shows up in canon, it will be removed!
3
Also, make sure to look up the names or words on this list, just to be sure! I might have made a mistake somewhere, and it's always important to get corroborating sources. (If you see a mistake, please let me know.)
4
Note: Please don't change the name of this file. It changes the name on my end as well and then I end up changing it back and it just becomes a whole thing.
