A challenge

Hello, as a writer, I challenged myself to find a color that began with every letter of the alphabet. Here's my list: (I know some of the colors have other meanings as well, such as nouns)

auburn, burgundy, copper, dove (a creamy color), eggplant, fuchsia, gold, hazel, indigo, khaki (dull brownish-yellow/tan), lavender, maroon, navy blue, ocher (light yellow to brown or red), puce (dark red or purplish-brown), quail (medium brown-beige mixture), russet (yellowish brown, light brown, or reddish brown), silver, teal, umber (dark yellowish-brown), violet, white, xanthic (yellow or yellowish color), zaffre (a deep blue and orange pigment). I have others. (I like to collect lists.)
