A color namer is a systematic algorithm to convert colors to color names. A color name is a name describing a color.
There are a variety of ways to do this:
- find the nearest color in a large color list and use the color name associated with it (for example https://colornamer.netlify.com/ )
- convert the color to HSV and assign hue, saturation and value names to it (for example https://colornamer2.netlify.com/ )
HSV color naming Edit

Using HSV to name colors works well.
Here are graphs of all color names used by https://colornamer2.netlify.com/ :
Note: When rounding halfway hues, saturations and values, both round halfway values up, but "color name 1" rounds the hue towards red, green or blue and rounds the saturation up, while "color name 2" rounds the hue towards yellow, cyan or magenta and rounds the saturation down. This is important for correct implementation of those methods.
