Green Foliage

Patch of Clover, from Kenrockwell.com

I remember, back in the day, when I used to do posts on names with relations to a certain colour, and today, finally, we resume our spectrum with green. Why green? Well, tis’ now spring, and green is almost universally associated with spring.

So, let’s first take a look at the names of different shades of green:

Beryl

Celadon

Clover

Emerald

Fern

Jade

Kelly, yes, there is a shade named Kelly Green.

Myrtle

Olive

Pomona, technically, the shade is called Cal Poly Pomona, since it was specifically created for the California State Polytechnic Uni, Pomona.

Teal

Viridian

And, then there are the names which mean green:

Blerta, albanian

Chloris, greek

Midori, japanese

Uaithne, irish

Vert, french

    About time you restarted these posts! For me, Green is a serene colour, and I’m captivated by Olive at the moment. So lovely.

    Chloris is delightfully unexpected.

    I’m torn between the simplicity of Emerald, and the elegance of Esmeralda. Both beautiful names, but there can only be one!
