I've always been really into colours, and I like to call them by their different shades instead of just blue/green/yellow, etc.
It's already an issue sometimes in my own language because people beg to differ about what are the names but it's worst when I want to find the equivalent, for example in english!
I was looking for the equivalent of maroon, and if I look at any online dictionary it gives me bordeaux.
But bordeaux's equivalent is supposed to be burgundy. And when I looked more in details I found out that bordeaux/burgundy is red + purple while maroon is red + brown.
Anyone has an idea of what would be the translation of maroon in french then? Or we might not have a name for that color?
EDIT: And we already use marron to designate any kind of brown, even though it comes from the fruit color and it would be a good match XD
