How many colors can you name in 5 minutes?

  1. I think I would have done better if I hadn't kept getting interrupted by IMs. But I'm surprised I did this good. A lot of the colors they listed I've either never heard of, or was unaware they were even colors. The list doesn't look very official. I mean, "psychedelic purple"? "Papaya whip"? My results (43 colors):

    Named so far: Beige, Black, Blue, Brown, Burgundy, Cerulean, Chartreuse, Chocolate, Corn, Cornflower blue, Dark blue, Dark green, Ecru, Emerald, Forest green, Gold, Goldenrod, Green, Grey, Light blue, Magenta, Mauve, Mustard, Navy Blue, Olive, Orange, Peach, Pear, Pink, Puce, Red, Rose, Russet, Rust, Silver, Tan, Tangerine, Teal, Turquoise, Violet, Wheat, White, Yellow,
