Vermilion is a shade of red, similar to crimson but without as strong a connotation (anger and blood)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shades_of_red

Auburn is my hair color Ex-dee! it's a brown-red
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shades_of_brown

both are well know colors in the states at least, most people here will know vermilion and auburn. Auburn is a popular hair color for girls, and vermilion was a color worn by royalty in some countries... I always get girls coming up and asking me if my hair is dyed and all jealous of my hair Ex-dee! course... it doesn't quite have the same effect for a male =/

Amber is a nice color and name, but its a shade of orange.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amber_(color)

I think of it as the color of tree sap, but maybe that is just me.

I don't encounter different shades of colours in Finnish language that often. We do have crimson (translates as blood red), and stuff like rose red and such, but most of these... I only see in English. sweat drop I'm sure there's a translation to all of 'em, but they're not very common.

Anyways, Vermillion seems rather fitting, me thinks.

understandable, since most people don't need to know the numerous different shades of colors. usually these terms are only used by people who paint from pigments, or writers who can't come up with a more creative way of describing an object. I suppose it's useful for the carpeting/wallpaper industries too.

@sf3p0x1 - perhaps you meant violet? there are several purplish colors that start with v. also, since many purples and vermillion were colors worn by royalty and nobility, I can see how you could confuse them.

on an interesting sidenote, shades of purple, red, and yellow were the most common colors worn by nobility in almost any country. Purple was more common in western nations, red and yellow more common in eastern, though there certainly was overlap

I can't think up names for any of them. Though I think Celeste sounds like the best choice for the first girl.

ah, one of the requirements is that the name is supposed to have some connection to the color theme. like Cinnamon is brown, Scarlet is red, Violet for purple, etc.

Indeed.

The name should be
1) a known one (in other words, most forum users have heard of the name before. No fantasy scribbles.)
2) preferably in English, but other languages are ok too, if the name is otherwise familiar to most.
3) related to the colour theme of the image (usually hair colour). For example, the name is a shade of a colour, or means something that has the colour in it, or if not an English name, then means or has history related to the colour. Uncertain of your suggestion? Google and Wikipedia will help you. Wink

#15 added as well.

Come on people, help me stay motivated by discussing the names, colours, and ages. Razz

Looking back on the discussion so far, I decided on the following names:
#3 - Celeste
#5 - Cinnamon
#10 - Scarlet

Keep suggesting, discussing and supporting names! Only thing to remember is for the names to have some relevance to the colour or appearance.

Also, suggest ages and other relevant info.

I'm thinking about having the name, age and personality (2 or 3 aspects/words) displayed on the calendar pages, so I need suggestions on all those details.

And not just you. There needs to be discussion about this, preferably with several members. Like on page 2 of this thread. That was really nice, and people kinda adopted some of the names for the girls on their own. To me that's a sign that a name is good. Wink

For a Purple themed page (#15) the obvious name choice is Violet or Magenta, maybe 20 years, she looks really flexible like if she was a cheerleader or into arobics or something, maybe give her a personality summarized by "showing off is work, but it's fun."

Or make her a powerful girl whose cuxie appearance gives her leverage and name her "Ultra Violet" Wink

Violet seems to have been mentioned more than once now. I don't dislike it.

Any additional opinions?

Well, I said Magenta and I think maybe some flower like an Orchid or something is purple...

I looked it up and "Heliotrope" is the name of a real color, a shade of purple, but somehow I'm not sure that name fits this girl.

Hmm... other than Pink, Magenta, and Violet, I don't know of any other common shades of purple.

and Ultra Violet and Heliotrope both sound like mecha names or something.

The names don't all need to, and shouldn't even, be actual colours. As long as they can somehow associate with the meaning of some name. Like... for instance, flowers with similar colours (like the above mentioned Orchid), names that derive from certain colours, or imply something related to the colour. As long as it seems to have a connection to the colour at question, then it's a welcome suggestion. You can even bend some related word a bit if it forms a name.

I'm trying to put my focus on the artworks, so I hope you guys can help me out with suggesting names and other details... just like in the early days of the calendar. sweat drop

Are Orchid and Magenta actual names that some people have? @.o

erm, I'm in the process of reformating my HD after an infection, so I'll keep it brief. Also note that I'm on a different laptop atm with a pitiful video card so forgive me if I'm a little off on the colors... I'm going on memory and what it appears to be on this screen.

#6
Color: going by hair, its Red-Orange or Persimmon.
going by clothing, its Spring or Olive Green.
Name: If Orange, then "Amber" (beautiful orange that ranges from yellow-orange to red-orange) or "Dawn" (Dawny, Dawnie, etc.) If Green, then "Esmeralda" or "Jade" (both green gems)
Age: 20
Brief: Compassionate, endearing, pioneering

#15
Color: Lavendar, Fuchsia (bright purplish-pink) or even Rose, though I don't think rose fits so well.
Name: Blossom
Age: 19
Brief: Gentle, passionate, delicate

#16
Color: Sapphire
Name: Siren (Mythological female creature of the sea), Aurora
Age: 26
Brief: Alluring, skillful, altruistic

Excellent suggestions there, especially on the names.

I would be quite fine with Amber or Dawn(+ variations) for #6.

Blossom for #15 isn't too bad.

Aurora for #16 sounds quite good.

I'll take any and all age suggestions into consideration when choosing the age for the characters, so everyone should just keep suggesting those.

As for the colour themes... considering that I recently posted the 'colour spectrum' thread, it seems logical to have the colour theme based on the hair colour. Does anyone know any websites or applications that would point to closest colour from any selected colour value? It'd be easy to just pick the RGB value and see what colours come closest, then just pick the one sounding most appropriate. What I'm trying to say is, for now you can concentrate on suggestings names, ages and personality. Wink

I've made a separate forum section with separate topics for each finished Lingerie Thingerie image! Please vote for age, and suggest names, colour and personalities in those topics!
