About The Official Register of Color Names


All Color Names included in the The Official Register of Color Names register are unique and do not repeat. Only one Color Name can be assigned to one Color Code. All given Color Names in the ORCN will be stored indefinitely.


ORCN expert team works hard on collecting and validating existing Color Names. We verify official and reliable information sources and include approved and conventional Color Names in the register.


ORCN invites everyone to contribute to the compilation of the register by suggesting existing Color Names that should be included in it. It also gives an opportunity for everyone who wants to contribute to the development of the color name register by naming the colors.

Become a Color Name Expert
ORCN is being consistently updated with new color names. Including new color names to the register is a scrupulous and laborious process, because prior to validating a color name, it has to undergo a cross-verification in official and reliable sources.
In such way you will help an ORCN expert team, which will analyze your provided color name on a priority basis.
