What’s in a name?

A couple of days ago I was picking my brains for a good colorway-name for a new brown/golden color. This one (on BFL-fiber):

It reminded me of some animal. But which one? A squirrel, a fox, a camel, a bison ox? I couldn’t get my head around it, until suddely I looked over at the couch where our cat Rosa was taking her afternoon nap. Then I knew: it was the dark brown, reddish brown and golden colors of our sweet kitty!

For the second new colorway that I’m going to present in this post, I seeked naming help in a dictionary over the local herbs and flora. I named the blue-violet color “Cow Vetch” and it looks like this, dyed on silk hankies:

You can see this and all the other fibers I painted in these 2 new colorways, over at my Etsy-Shop!
What do you think? I’d be happy to read your opinions about my colors.. 🙂
