Manufacturer art supplies Crayola has always known how to come up with creative names for their pencils, but now you have the chance to give a unique name to each of the 16.7 million colors 24-bit color spectrum.
On the website ColorNames.org you can invent your own name any color, and there is a chance that it will be assigned to him officially. Of course, there are some rules you need to follow. The name you come up with, should be descriptive: for example, you can’t take a pasty shade of white and try to call him “Andrey”. The name also must not be offensive.
