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

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.

"Puce" is derived from the French word for flea. As is the color, which resembles the color of a blood-engorged flea or the stains it leaves behind on clothes and sheets. That should help you remember it. But just to confuse things, there is also a puce green, which is similar to pea soup. God knows where that came from.

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.)
