As I was putting these together, I noticed something else here interesting - that words besides color words were used to describe a color - ice, blood, etc.

But my main point of this was to illustrate how some words that you think can be so obvious to say to someone, be it a designer or an artist or a choreographer, etc., have many different meanings to people.

I would go a step further to theorize that if I was to place before you color swatches, and you had to wrote down what color it is, there would also be different names.
