The Colour Purple
Our team had lunch at Purple Cafe today, and I love this little blurb on the back of their menus:
Calms the mind
Creates a sense of spirituality
Blend the stability of blue and the energy of red
Symbolises power, nobility, luxury, wisdom, dignity and magic
I love the colour purple! When you think of it in terms of the above it's easy to see why so many others love it too. But while Blue, Grey and even Pink are colours that are now accepted as names, Purple seems just a little too quirky to use on its own yet. Luckily there are plenty of other options for purple inspired names that can be used to still convey the feelings and qualities people associate with purple.
While flowers tend to be the most popular source of purple names, below is a list of some "official" shades of purple to draw some inspiration from. By no means do I suggest these would all be great names (Eggplant? For dinner, yes; a person, no), but you may find some potential winners here.
