Here’s some random colors you might not of heard of. Vote for your favorite!

australien - a deep orange color, inspired by the rusty brown of some deserts.
banan - a ripe yellow banana. you know, banan!
bastard-amber - name of an amber-colored spotlight used in theatres. often used to recreate sunlight.
falu - a deep rust red made from iron-rich waste materials left over from mines.
gingerline - the color of ripe kumquats. so basically just a shade of bright orange.
incarnadine - a rich shade of crimson.
labrador - nope, not the dog. it’s a greyish-blue, and gets its name from the mineral labradorite.
verditer - green, rust-like color of copper and brass. like the green of an old penny that’s been outside for a year.
watchet - like a robin’s egg blue, with a hint of pale sky.
zaffre - an ancient pigment made by burning cobalt in furnaces; a deep royal blue.

I got most of this info here: http://mentalfloss.com/article/59328/19-colors-youve-probably-never-heard

I think it's crazy that hardly anyone can imagine discovering a completely new color. I mean, we look at these names, but see what colors they kind of are, but a NEW color...

You forgot one, the unintelligable (but visible) color that you see when you stare into a bright light for too long.
I just can't explain it, other people see it too.

These names sound like they are made up. In some sense I guess they are, but the fact that they are actually real is rather interesting :p

They sort of are, in a way. But they each have a history that is true. For example, Australien was on a list of ladies’ dress colors from a fashion company. Multiple people have used it since then. And Falu originated from a small city in Sweden called Falun. Since the 16th century, most of the buildings there have been traditionally painted a deep rust-red color. So there is truth in these names :)
