      I would say the left column is more like "Color names if you're under the age of 8" (and have one of those fancy 64-color crayon boxes).

      I dont regard the Male colours for blue as blue. They are turquoise (or cyan), somewhere between green and blue.
      Blue is slightly different.
      See Wiki
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color
      and level with "Spectral Colors" to see "blue".

      Check out paint manufacturer's color names at a paint store (preferably one with several brands) -- the hundreds of color names are amazing, and different for each company! Then, when they change the names for different "themes", real chaos ensues!

      Better, check an artist's store for an artist's color wheel - the best, most consistent names used equally by men and women!

      This explains why we men make our clothing buying decisions an 87% faster than women.

      many color names mean nothing, some are right on

      I've been telling my wife this for a long time. But as a man, I must say I am somewhat insulted by having you imply that men have a limited color vocabulary. By hyphenating the colors on the right (when appropriate) and by adding creative modifiers like "dark", "light", "-ish", and "sorta", we can name ANY color. e.g. "Well, honey, as I recall, it was sorta light reddish-purple".

      Hello,

      I think this table is quite accurate, but you should add a colum with color if you are a designer with #ppejje3 and other Photoshop colors! :)

      I always thought the Grinch was male. I want to use "Grinch green" to convey my favorite shade. Will that turn off my female clothing clientele?
