Fuchsia the color comes from fuchsia the flower, which comes from Fuchs the botanist, which comes from Fuchs, the German word for "fox". Just an interesting little history, I thought.

It actually comes from Fuchsia City, the 8th city in the Kanto region.

I'm pretty sure it's 'fuschia', isn't it?

Nope. That's more like how it sounds, but it's "Fuchsia". See above comment by Nyneve922 for explanation.

No, it's not spelled 'fuschia'. That's just how I typed it about 30 times in disbelief before trying it the right way.

It appears the color can be spelled both ways, fuschia and fuchsia. Although it appears the quiz does use the preferred spelling.

I've checked the OED, Collins, American Heritage, and a half dozen other respected dictionaries, and none of them list "Fuschia" as an alternate spelling of the color.

No, the color is only "fuchsia".

It's named after Leonhart Fuchs, so will never have the 's' before the 'ch'. That'd be like calling a Hoover a Hovoer, not happening.

If you ever shopped men's dress shirts you would have heard of ecru, taupe, and puce.

I know taupe because I draw a lot with colored pencils and collect as many brands as possible to give me varying shades. One is taupe. Hadn't heard of puce and ecru, though.

This is one case where it's good to be old. Rocky and Bullwinkle fans should remember that Bullwinkle's high school colors were pomegranate and puce.

I learned chartreuse as a young kid. It was the Easter egg dye color produced by adding one drop of green food coloring to 12 drops of yellow. (That was back in the old days when we made our own egg dye from boiling water, vinegar, and liquid food coloring.)

Thought I was typing in 'Green', then noticed instead I typed in 'Greece'... Probably because I had taken "Countries of the World", "Countries of the World with an Empty Map", and "Every Country Shape" right before this. And another thing: I thought this was a colors quiz, not an elements quiz! What's Cobalt doing here?

I didn't know lots of these. Perhaps it would've been better to use more common colours (like yellow or violet) and not 'ecru', which no-one has heard of. Otherwise, great quiz. It was a good challenge.
