Naming Team Colors After Players...?

Recommended Posts

I am currently working on a Minnesota Twins concept and came across what I find to be an interesting potential topic of discussion. As we well know thanks to our good friend Colorwerx, teams have all sorts of names for the colors they use. From Royal Blue to Periwinkle, we've seen it all. But what about using player names as color names?

In my concept I wanted to choose unique names for the colors, names that fit the team. The first thing that popped into my head was "Killebrew Cream". Then I thought of other name colors.

I thought they all fit nicely.

But I am not sure about the whole idea. Is it acceptable? Is it plausible? What are your thoughts?

You never cease to amaze me with your ideas. This is an absolutely fantastic idea for a concept.

Just a suggestion: Even though I absolutely love Killebrew as a player, maybe you could try out Carew Cream? I know that he spent some time with Angels and Killebrew was a long-time Twins, but Blyleven played for other teams as well.

First and foremost, I will always advocate for alliteration.

Second, it seems cool, but I think it would only be cool for 2 maybe 3 players, max. Once you get passed 3, it just seems to be cheap and cheesy.

Well hell, your NFL team has the names built in.

Paul Brown (for who the team was named), Jim Brown...every team ain't got it that easy. :P

That's all part of the problem. On the want hand you want to make sure the color names sound appropriate and make sense. At the same time you want to make sure the proper players are accounted for in terms of naming. Like it would probably be good to honor Puckett and Oliva, but what if their names don't fit in?
