The Colours of Names
I think for me, having synesthesia, affects my name taste to some extent.
There is a name color game, so I was wondering how many people here see colours for names.
I think I prefer names that are light pink.I see Olive, Willow,and Caitlin that colour for example.
Some boy names I like are pink to me, even.
but I can't describe the colour of some.
for instance, Larissa is to me the colour of frolicking in a meadow during sunset, the taste of honey on my tongue.
August is like a storm, not exactly purple, grey or blue . it's a deep colour that just swirls around like the wind.
Purity is... well.. pure. It is clearer than clear, whiter than white, a sparkling angelic colour. (AND the only reason I like it).
Does anybody else see name colours, and do you you tend to like names because of their colour?I am a 16 year-old Ravenclaw girl with many fandoms. You can call me Theodora or Phoenix. I do not plan on having kids, just lots of characters. And of course, I love names.

I'm not sure whether I have synesthesia or not, but I always 'feel' a color/smell/taste/etc. when I hear a name. For example, Gemma is purple and tastes like chocolate and if I could touch it, it would feel like a bar of soap. This certainly affects my taste in names. If I don't like the color, smell or taste of a name, I most likely wouldn't like the name itself. Most of the names on my list tend to be light in color and feel/smell fresh.
I also feel emotions for most names. For instance, some names are happy, some are sad, some are anxious or angry or tired. It seems very weird now that I think about it, lol.polina ∙ 19 ∙ art history major ∙ web developer
