  • List of colors in Spanish
    The following Spanish to English vocabulary list contain names of colors in Spanish. Let's learn how to say names of different colors in Spanish.
    List of colors in Spanish
    1. Colors are ADJECTIVES. When they describe a NOUN, they must match its GENDER (masculine/feminine).
    Therefore, "red" is "rojo" but it becomes "roja" with a feminine noun.
    For example:
    la pelota roja - the red ball. Colours that follow this rule include:
    • rojo (masculine)/roja (feminine) - red 
    • negro (m)/negra (f) - black
    • blanco (m)/blanca (f) - white
    • amarillo (m)/amarilla (f) - yellow 
    • morado (m)/morada (f) - purple 
    2. Some colours don’t change their endings to match the GENDER. 
    For example:
    "Naranja" stays the same for both masculine and feminine nouns. 
    El coche naranja - the orange car (masculine). 
    La pelota naranja - the orange ball (feminine).
    These colours will be listed out below: 
    • orange - naranja
    • pink - rosa
    • brown - marrón
    • blue - azul
    • green - verde
    • grey - gris
