We’re all familiar with color names like Scarlett, Ebony, Gray (recently popular), and Cole (as in black) but what if you want a color name no one’s used before, or at least you’ve never heard.

Russet — It’s a deep brown. It’s very similar to Russell and other names of the sort, and has the same nickname of Russ, but it’s a color name I’ve never seen used.
