Some colors may have different names, depending on language and geographic regions. Some colors have different spellings, depending on the language used.

Also, the real problem is that some color names are defined differently by regions or who you get the color list from. I have seen Aqua a little darker than Cyan, cyan being one of the primary printer ink colors and the name of aqua is not. So they are not interchangeable in some applications and my need different "acceptable" names for different applications.

I have seen Gray spelled both ways, but gray is what I use since my American English spell checking in Thunderbird tells me "grey" is misspelled. Other languages may use "grey" instead of the other spelling.

For example, apropos an earlier discussion on this list, see p52 
"Color names." In 25 basic colours three duplicates: aqua+cyan, fuchsia+magenta and gray+grey.
