Decisions, decisions

My old office chair has broken.  Part of the process of getting a new one is to pick a colour for the fabric.  I was sent the attached swatch chart

What a dilemma!  I wasn't even aware that some of these were names of colours.  One of my colleagues commented on the existence of the colour Hobbit while another urged Wine upon me.  In the end I went for Trident, being a good nuclear physicist.  I could have gone for Cobalt, it being an element, but it's got an odd atomic number (Z=27), so I tend to avoid it.
