Fuchsia the color comes from fuchsia the flower, which comes from Fuchs the botanist, which comes from Fuchs, the German word for "fox". Just an interesting little history, I thought.

It actually comes from Fuchsia City, the 8th city in the Kanto region.

I'm pretty sure it's 'fuschia', isn't it?
+1
Level 51
Sep 8, 2017
Nope. That's more like how it sounds, but it's "Fuchsia". See above comment by Nyneve922 for explanation.

No, it's not spelled 'fuschia'. That's just how I typed it about 30 times in disbelief before trying it the right way.

I only missed "cerise". >:-( So close!

Level 73

It appears the color can be spelled both ways, fuschia and fuchsia. Although it appears the quiz does use the preferred spelling.

Level 45
Sep 1, 2012
I've checked the OED, Collins, American Heritage, and a half dozen other respected dictionaries, and none of them list "Fuschia" as an alternate spelling of the color.
+2
Level 41
Sep 2, 2012
No, the color is only "fuchsia".
+3
Level 66
Sep 4, 2017
It's named after Leonhart Fuchs, so will never have the 's' before the 'ch'. That'd be like calling a Hoover a Hovoer, not happening.

Is Verdigris supposed to be a mix of green and grey?

It's the greenish rusted-copper color of the Statue of Liberty or of old toilet tanks.

Puce 73%, ecru 45%, taupe 44%. What?? I had never even heard of these colors!

Level 43

If you ever shopped men's dress shirts you would have heard of ecru, taupe, and puce.

Level 57
Jan 3, 2014
No, I'm pretty sure if they were men's shirts, it would be brown, gray, and purple.

I know taupe because I draw a lot with colored pencils and collect as many brands as possible to give me varying shades. One is taupe. Hadn't heard of puce and ecru, though.

This is one case where it's good to be old. Rocky and Bullwinkle fans should remember that Bullwinkle's high school colors were pomegranate and puce.

Bummed to miss 'cerulean', since I was always a fan of that X-Files episode called "Pusher", which features cerulean blue in its plot.

Cerulean was one of my favourite colour pencils when I was 10. I'll never forget it.

I only knew of this colour because of that episode.. He repeats it so often to the cop, that anytime I now see the word or hear it, I picture that scene and hear him repeating it.

Thought I was typing in 'Green', then noticed instead I typed in 'Greece'... Probably because I had taken "Countries of the World", "Countries of the World with an Empty Map", and "Every Country Shape" right before this. And another thing: I thought this was a colors quiz, not an elements quiz! What's Cobalt doing here?

'Colour' is spelled differently depending on where you live

In the US, we say/spell it as 'color'

(I use 'colour,' however)

I didn't know lots of these. Perhaps it would've been better to use more common colours (like yellow or violet) and not 'ecru', which no-one has heard of.

Otherwise, great quiz. It was a good challenge.
