Alphabet Color Quiz

Okay, here's a quiz for all you writers, readers, word lovers, and fashion/decorating/artistic experts.

In the Derek Mason Mystery series, Derek says that he can list ten names for red, but not ten football teams... So, I thought, can I name a color for each letter of the alphabet??

Some are easy, but a few are extremely difficult.

And I couldn't get them all. I had colors matched to 23 of the 26 letters.

Try it and see how many you can name.

Rules:

  • only names of colors (nouns)
  • only one word (so, D can’t be “dark green”)
  • no variegations like brindle, stripe, plaid, check, dots

F

I'll post what I came up with later. Have fun.
