You made that sound so serious, like "lets meet in the secret location to discuss the matters of the society of secret colors™"

Stuff like "Cobalt" and "Saphire" or heck, completely not color related is available?

I've heard the same thing as Alicorn about indigo. If that conversation involves the occult beliefs of Isaac Newton, can it not happen in secret?

I’ve always agreed with what Alicorn said but didn’t have data. I later heard that it was created by Newton mostly so that the colors could be assigned musical notes, but I don’t know why he wanted to assign musical notes to colors. I also don’t remember the reference.

Since then, however, English has shifted, and this includes color names. The average of the English-speaking xkcd-reading population, which is totally a nonbiased sample, puts indigo at #380282, this dark blue-purple color, but doesn’t really answer it much in comparison to other traditional rainbow colors.

I poked at the Wikipedia article for Indigo for a bit, which unhelpfully describes it as a color between blue and purple. And then I decided that I have no especially strong feelings about colors, if people think it's too purple I will happily agree, if people think it's blue I will also happily agree, it just came to mind as "dark blueish color without blue in the name."

Maggie, IMO white is fine, I want to be more permissive than less on what colors are OK because we've got a lotta glowficcers.

I mean, indigo is a real color, but it is not on par with the six actual rainbow colors any more than, like, "turquoise", which can also be found in a rainbow, is. Indigo is not a basic color word (in English or afaik any other language).

I am somewhat more comfortable with indigo than sapphire. Sapphire feels. Very blue.
