Default Interesting Names For Colors?

I'm not talking about the names for colors in breed standards, more like the one's you see owners, rescues and shelters using.

At my shelter we have a white JRT X with "butterscotch" markings and a "cinnamon" mystery mutt.

Fun fact: When Kobe was at the shelter, he was identified as a "Crystalline Colored Malamute/Husky mix."

I was like what.

Lol. Cream. White maybe. Crystalline is a bit of a stretch. Does he sparkle in the sun?

Well, he is somewhat angelic. It's not impossible that what they might have seen was a heavenly glow.

Oh I've seen those too...I've also seen it called Australian Red and honey-gold.

To be fair, in the states at least, bb (brown/liver) BCs are called red so I think they are trying to draw the distinction between bb and ee...

I once had someone tell me their dog was "pretzel" colored. I wrote "brown", for what it's worth
