All Color Lovers Welcome!!! -I need your help!!! -If you have no interest in color or the science of color...this forum is not for you!!! Hello, I often refer to myself as Jozen-Bo. I have been doing some very intensive research on color coordination (many many many hours) and I have found that the wheel is incomplete when we expand it to 24 colors! The 6-color wheel (Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, & Magenta) becomes a 12-color wheel by adding the colors in between (Red, Orange, Yellow, Chartreuse, Green, Torqoise (redefined into this 12-wheel system), Cyan, Azure, Blue, Violet, Magenta, And Rose). Red begins at 0 degrees (or 360) and every 30 degrees we get a new name! For my own personal purposes I began looking for the names of every 15 degree rotation from red. These colors are close enough or a perfect fit (off by no more then 2 degrees) and are as follows: 1-Red 2-Vermillion 3-Orange 4-Amber 5-Yellow 6-Lime 7-Chartruese 8-Harlequin 9-Green 10-??????? 11-Torqoise (redefined values) 12-???????? 13-Cyan 14-????????? 15-Azure 16-????????? 17-Blue 18-Indigo (redefined) 19-Violet 20-Purple (redefined) 21-Magenta 22-???????? 23-Rose 24-Crimson (redefined). Purple and Indigo of the redefined colors are ones that I have seen other people put into the words used to describe the rainbow....I'm just making it fit. Ever since I was a little bow I heard repeatedly that torqoise is in between blue and green...so I put it there. Crimson is the exception...its a lovely name but its place is questionable. Colors 10 (135 degrees), Colors 12 (165 degrees), 14 (195 degrees), 16-(210 degrees), and 22 (315 degrees) have no name other then something stupid like blue-violet (its a good thing my parents didn't name me Robin-Aldona). I looked (surfed) many hours for these names and never found any. So I decided to give them names myself. Off course if there is anyone out there who can provide me these names (if they even exist), I would be happy to use the technical names provided...but without citing the source I won't consider doing this. So these are the names I am giving them: Color 10 (135 degrees) name:Chuche..Chuchae//or Ayida...Ayidae...Ayidal Color 12 (165 degrees) nameya...Oyae....Ovae...Ova Color 14 (195 degrees) name:Julunggul Julunggule...Kalserue...Yingarne Color 16 (210 degrees) name:Iris.....Irise Color 22 (315 degrees) name:Chacchel...Chachel...Chachell...Chacchele All five of these names are derived from various Goddesses of the Rainbow from different cultures...so it seemed best to put them into the Rainbow. I am going to tweak them a little...to help distinction. For example: Iris is the original name of the Greek Goddess of the Rainbow...Irise is a little tweaked so I know what I am referring to when I use it. Since I haven't entirely made my mind up (Oyae or Ovae?)...maybe someone would like to help me choose the final versions. Then our 24-color wheel will be much more pleasant to work with!!!! (I am quite shocked that these gradient positions don't have their own names!!!). Big thank you to any who participate and tell me which versions sound the best. Suggestions for other names are welcome...as long as they are variants from above or as long as they have a great basis for being there (a relevant background of some sort). Just making up neat sounds with no backgrounds will be disregarded.
