After a colour in the rainbow. What do you choose for boy and a girl?

I would choose Red for a boy and Violet for a girl.

Ooh... Good game!

Teal for a boy. Indigo for a girl

InkleWinkle Sat 19-Mar-16 23:11:02

Indigo. For either.

Teal is not a colour of the rainbow.

None of them sound like names except Violet. Green or Blue for a boy I guess, but I'd feel pretty daft calling them either.

Sky (blue) for a girl. Forest (green) for a boy.

Patterkiller Sat 19-Mar-16 23:14:07

Violet for a girl. And I'm going to say blue for a boy. Not because it's a boys colour just like the sound.

NewYearSameMe Sat 19-Mar-16 23:14:21

Missed the rainbow bit, sorry. In that case I'd choose the same as the OP.

Are we stuck to just 7 colours or is anything on the spectrum allowed?

If the former, Green for a girl (because of the Joni Mitchell song) and Red for a boy for me too.

It's obnovious, surely - Pink for a girl, and Blue for a boy wink

Indigo for a boy and yellow for a girl.

<checks law>

Allowed names are:


All others colours are outlawed. Hyphenation is allowed!

Good use of obnovious tractors grin

Blue for a boy and indigo for a girl.

2Offwhitecurtains Sat 19-Mar-16 23:33:37

Blue for a girl and Orange for a boy.

ValiaH Sat 19-Mar-16 23:35:11

Indigo- nn Indi for a boy, Violet or Blue for a girl. Couldn't name any of them Red as there was a villain in the Famous Five who was called Red, and so that's been forever associated with negativity for me!

MoonlightandMusic Sat 19-Mar-16 23:35:22

Red or Indigo for a boy and Violet or Blue for a girl.

SanityClause Sat 19-Mar-16 23:36:40

Red for a boy, Indigo for a girl.

Lightbulbon Sat 19-Mar-16 23:37:49

Indigo boy

Violet girl

SpecialSnowflake Sat 19-Mar-16 23:38:28

Indigo for a boy (NN Indy), Blue for a girl (NN Lulu)

DropYourSword Sat 19-Mar-16 23:40:39

Indigo for a boy, because it's close to Inigo (Montoya!)

Red for a girl, because I like the names Ruby and Scarlett

5BlueHydrangea Sat 19-Mar-16 23:40:40

Indigo and Violet
Was tempted to use one or other of those names with dd but didn't in the end. But part of me wishes I had!

FurryDogMother Sun 20-Mar-16 00:00:25

Green for a boy and Blue for a girl smile

AnotherStitchInTime Sun 20-Mar-16 00:02:17
