Sable, Jade, Scarlett, Blanche, Cerise, Hunter, Cedar, Jett

Mine I think are more likely to be paint chips than crayons.  I know a kid named Cedar and he's helpful, bright, and super cool.

I looked through the box of 64 while my son was napping and found several that I liked, but my favorite 8 included a lot of repeats (like Rose & Scarlet).  Ignoring the fact I wouldn't name too kids for the same color-my list is Rose, Violet, Olive, Scarlet, Lavender, Sienna, Indigo & Plum.

I know someone named Teala (pronounced Tee-ah-luh). I had never thought of her name as being a color name, but it could be.

Hmm, here's a list of some Crayola colors if anybody wants it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Crayola_crayon_colors

Violet, Rose, Lilac, Ivy (g)
Grey, Jasper, Slate, Tanner (b)

If you want to get lost, go the wikipedia page for List of Colors http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_colors . Talk about a rabbit hole!

I think my favorites are-

Fuchsia(g), Magenta(g), Lavender(g), Marigold(g), Ochre(b), Ash(b), Cobalt(b), Cerulean(unisex?)

I quite like Fuchsia, Lavender, and Marigold, which is strange, as purple and yellow aren't really my favorite colors.

Many on this list should probably be ignored; the state set, baseball set, any famous names, trademarked names or characters. Pikachu is not the name of a color.
