There are a total of 16,777,216 unique colors that can be generated as part of the RGB color specification. Of these sixteen million colors, the average human eye can only distinguish a small amount of them. There may be a few million shades of green but a few people can only make out a handful that, to them, seem unique.

When I thought of building a random color generator, I saw no benefit in coming up with something that just came out with any one of these random 16 million colors. Instead, it will come up with ACTUAL colors. By this, i mean colors that have been given names. These names will often work as CSS colors too!

Using the button below, you can generate a random color. The color will appear in the box and the name above it. In the even you want to use this color on a website, you can use the hex code which will also show up when you click the button.

Note: The exact color that you see will be dictated by the screen you are using to view it.
