New on CTAN: xkcdcolors
In the year 2010, Randall Munroe posted a really fun and nice article on the iconic web of xkcd. He did a very curious experiment: showing colors to a lot of people and asking to name each one. Afterward, he processed the data and sorted the names for each color by popularity --- that means, how many people gave the same name to the same color (no guidance here! Read the post linked above for details). He obtained a nice list of around 950 color names. It's not at all surprising that a lot of people forged CloudyBlue, but some color is really surprising, like for example BabyPoopGreen or DullPink... Now you can use them in LaTeX!
