I’d call it purple… but again, I am almost a guy about this stuff haha.

Plum.  But I go for the simpler the name the better.

@BrookeBQ:  I would call Barney fucsia! Purple for me is more like Tinky Winky.

Maybe if they had a kid, it would be Plum…

I’d call it plum too. When I think purple I think the shade they use in GLBT flags

I find plum can sometimes skew too red. I’d refer to it as eggplant/aubergene

At first glance I’d call that Plum or Aubergine…

But I then went to the source for colour… Pantone

That looks a lot like Phlox # 19-2820

If not that then certainly something nearby… like Sparkling Grape.

Hope this helps,
