X color names

X color names come several variants:

Any name that is spelled as a single word with capitalization (e.g. ‘LightSlateBlue’) can also be spelled as space separated words without capitalization (e.g. ‘light slate blue’).

The word ‘grey’ can always be spelled ‘gray’ (e.g. ‘DarkSlateGray’).

Some names can take a numerical suffix (e.g. ‘LightSalmon4’).
