113 Colors That Start With E (Names, Hex, RGB, CMYK)

Colorful symbols and white box with text saying colors that start with e

There are relatively few colors that start with the letter E, especially when compared to the C or D lists. However, there are still more than one hundred individual colors here, thanks in large part to some common prefixes like “electric” and “English.”

The following may only include colors beginning with a single letter from the alphabet, but it’s a good jumping-off point to help you find the perfect color for your latest project.

List of Colors That Start With E

Here’s a list of colors that start with the letter E, including names, Hex, RGB, and CMYK codes:

Eagle

Eagle is a soft shade of pale brown with some strong green undertones to round it out and lend extra weight. The color draws its inspiration from the tawny brown shade commonly found on members of the eagle family around the world, rather than from one specific breed or type of bird.

Eagle

RGB 182, 186, 164 
CMYK 2, 0, 12, 27

Eagle White

Eagle White, on the other hand, is directly inspired by the extremely pale shade of brown found on the head feathers of the Bald Eagle. At a distance, these feathers may appear white, and this shade reflects that fact, but it’s actually a soft, pinkish-brown off-white shade that’s still very lightweight or bright.

RGB 240, 225, 204 
CMYK 0, 6, 15, 6

Earls Green

Earls Green is a bright yellowish-brown shade of green with some subtle blue undertones to keep it from tipping into the orange or brown color family. When used in interior or graphic design, it pairs well with more intense shades of brown, green, or even yellow, as those shades tend to bring out its more muted aspects.

Early Dawn

Early Dawn is another pale off-white shade that’s inspired by the first rays of light that can be seen on a clear or cloudy day. Early Dawn has a definite yellow or golden tint to its overall shade, a reflection of the golden light of the early morning sun.

Earlybird

It’s been said that the early bird gets the worm, and Earlybird as a color clearly draws inspiration from both players in that particular proverb. Earlybird is a dark, rich brown shade that can be seen on many common sparrows or other “hedge birds” found in various parts around the world.

Earlybird

RGB 81, 57, 57 
CMYK 0, 30, 30, 68

Earth Yellow

When we think of “earthy” colors, most of us tend to think of various green or brown hues, but Earth Yellow is a bold shade of yellow-orange with red-gold undertones. It’s named for the color of baked earth or dirt, typically seen in deserts, tundras, or other relatively dry and arid environments.

Earth Yellow
Hex #E1A95F
RGB 225, 169, 95 
CMYK 0, 25, 58, 12

Earth Green

Especially as compared to Earth Yellow, Earth Green is far more in keeping with what we would usually consider an “earthen” color. Earth Green is an extremely dark green shade with some subtle brown undertones to reflect the rich potential and plant life found around the globe and on nearly every continent.

Earth Green
Hex #2E342B
RGB 46, 52, 43 
CMYK 12, 0, 17, 80

Earthsong

Earthsong appears very similar in shade to Earth Green, but it has a higher saturation overall, as well as noticeably higher blue or cyan values. As a result, this shade of green is just as dark, but still appears softer, brighter, and just a little bit more approachable than the previous entry on this list.

Earthsong
Hex #2A3E33
RGB 42, 62, 51 
CMYK 32, 0, 18, 76

East Bay

East Bay is a dark shade of grayish blue with an almost purple or violet undertone running throughout. It takes its name from the deep, dark waters that tend to pool in the various bays and harbors that are found near major trade cities around the world.

East Bay
Hex #414C7D
RGB 65, 76, 125 
CMYK 48, 39, 0, 51

East Side

East Side is a light shade of pale purple inspired by the electric energy and fast-paced feeling of New York City’s “East Side of Manhattan”. Typically considered to be more approachable, vivacious, and lively than other parts of the city, the East Side carries some of the same optimism and youthful confidence that this shade portrays.

East Side
Hex #AC91CE
RGB 172, 145, 206 
CMYK 17, 30, 0, 19

Eastern Blue

Eastern Blue is a soothing bluish green shade with hints of warmer tones running throughout. The Eastern Bluebird, which serves as a potential source of inspiration for this shade, has feathers of a nearly identical hue—even including the distinctive greenish-blue note, which is relatively rare in bluebirds.

Eastern Blue
Hex #1E9AB0
RGB 30, 154, 176 
CMYK 83, 13, 0, 31

Ebb

Ebb is another soft off-white shade with a distinctly pinkish undertone. The pink is relatively muted, washed out with a higher key value that gives it an almost gray appearance while still retaining enough color to keep from being completely monochromatic. This shade pairs well with just about any color, but especially with bright accent shades.

Ebb
Hex #E9E3E3
RGB 233, 227, 227 
CMYK 0, 3, 3, 9

Ebony

Ebony wood has been prized since the days of Ancient Egypt, valued for its deep, dark color and its extremely dense and sturdy physical makeup. As a color, Ebony is every bit as dark as the wood that gives it its name, with some subtle red or purple undertones to give a little bit of warmth.

Ebony
Hex #0C0B1D
RGB 12, 11, 29 
CMYK 59, 62, 0, 89

Ebony Clay

Ebony Clay is noticeably lighter than “true” Ebony, and it sports a solid blue undertone that serves to brighten the otherwise extremely dark shade. The “clay” aspect of Ebony Clay comes the cooler gray notes that push it out of the true black category.

Ebony Clay
Hex #26283B
RGB 38, 40, 59 
CMYK 36, 32, 0, 77

Echo

Echo is a dark shade of brown that draws a lot of visual inspiration from the deep caves and dark caverns where you’re most likely to hear the echo of sound bouncing off a hard surface. As a color, Echo veers more red-brown than blue-brown, but it’s such a dark shade that even those red undertones are muted.

Echo
Hex #483C3A
RGB 72, 60, 58 
CMYK 0, 17, 19, 72

Echo Blue

Echo Blue, on the other hand, is far lighter than true Echo—a soft, purple blue shade with some lighter violet undertones to help mellow out the shade and keep it from appearing too bright or aggressive. Echo Blue pairs well with other muted shades or works well as an accent to make some design element stand out.

Echo Blue
Hex #A4AFCD
RGB 164, 175, 205 
CMYK 20, 15, 0, 20

Eclipse

An eclipse is any movement of the sun, moon, or other planets that temporarily blocks the light from another celestial body. As a result, it’s hardly surprising that the color Eclipse should be an extremely deep brownish gray shade that’s dark enough to nearly appear black.

Eclipse
Hex #311C17
RGB 49, 28, 23 
CMYK 0, 43, 53, 81

Ecru

The word “ecru” comes from the French word “écru”, which means “unbleached”. Ecru is a medium dark greenish-gray beige shade that has traditionally been considered the color of unbleached linen. Its use as a color dates all the way back to the early 1800s, when it was first used to describe this specific shade.

Ecru
Hex #C2B280
RGB 194, 178, 128 
CMYK 0, 8, 34, 24

Ecru Tan

As compared to true Ecru, Ecru Tan is noticeably lighter, and it also lacks the some of the green or yellow undertones that the original shade displays. Instead, Ecru Tan looks like a very pale shade of beige with some cool red or violet undertones to help temper the overall appearance.

Ecru Tan
Hex #D6D1C0
RGB 214, 209, 192 
CMYK 0, 2, 10, 16

Ecru White

Taking the transformation one step further, Ecru White is the lightest of the three Ecru shades. As a result, Ecru White is only a few steps removed from true white, resulting in an extremely pale off-white shade with some subtle yellow or reddish undertones running throughout.

Ecru White

CMYK 0, 1, 7, 4

Ecstasy

In common usage, “ecstasy” refers to an altered state of being brought on by an influx of such strong emotion that an individual becomes totally involved with an object or an experience. As a color, Ecstasy is bright, vivid shade of orange that captures the attention and consumes the focus of the viewer to the exclusion of all other colors.

Ecstasy
Hex #FA7814
RGB 250, 120, 20 
CMYK 0, 52, 92, 2

Ecstasy Red

Ecstasy Red is a little bit more muted than true Ecstasy, but it still packs plenty of that same heat and energy to keep the viewer’s attention. With the addition of a strong red undertone, the shade takes on a weathered or almost brown appearance, but still retains the warmth of the original shade.

Ecstasy Red
Hex #C96138
RGB 201, 97, 56 
CMYK 0, 52, 72, 21

Eden

Eden
Hex #105852
RGB 16, 88, 82 
CMYK 82, 0, 7, 65

Edgewater

The name “Edgewater” has been applied to various towns and cities throughout the Western world for generations, but as a color, it refers to this very pale shade of blue with just enough yellow to give it a slightly greenish tint. The end result is a soft robin’s-egg-blue type shade with a pale yellow undertone.

Edgewater
Hex #C8E3D7
RGB 200, 227, 215 
CMYK 12, 0, 5, 11

Edward

Edward is another pale blue shade, but this particular color veers a lot more towards green or gray than it does towards true blue. It’s an extremely unsaturated color, which means that it ends up looking like a most gray shade with only some slight blue undertones to round out the coolness.

Edward
Hex #A2AEAB
RGB 162, 174, 171 
CMYK 7, 0, 2, 32

Eerie Black

Eerie Black, as the name might suggest, is a shade of dark black. The “eerie” nature of this shade comes from the slightly brownish green undertones, which help lend a sense of mystery and intrigue on one hand—or just a vaguely unsettled or eerie feeling overall.

Eerie Black
Hex #1B1B1B
RGB 27, 27, 27 
CMYK 0, 0, 0, 89

Eeyore

Named after and inspired by the famous stuffed donkey, Eeyore is a dark gray shade that closely matches the dark plush fur of everyone’s favorite pessimist. With some subtle blue undertones, Eeyore is definitely a cooler shade of gray, but it’s still light enough to keep from being too depressing.

Eeyore
Hex #667172
RGB 102, 113, 114 
CMYK 11, 1, 0, 55

Effervescent

The word “effervescent” literally means “gently boiling or bubbling” or “giving off bubbles”. Informally, however, it’s often used to describe an energetic or cheerful personality, due to its light, bubbly implications. As a color, Effervescent is a warm, light brown shade with some purple undertones for an added sense of whimsical delight.

Effervescent
Hex #A8988E
RGB 168, 152, 142 
CMYK 0, 10, 15, 34

Effortless

Effortless is another purple shade, but as compared to Effervescent, it’s a lot more obviously purple. Effortless is a relatively dark lavender variant, with enough red to keep it from looking glum or too overly cool. The end result is a muted shade of dark reddish purple with a weathered, antique sense.

Effortless
Hex #A096A7
RGB 160, 150, 167 
CMYK 4, 10, 0, 35

Egg Sour

The first of several “egg-themed” names, Egg Sour is inspired by the “sour” family of cocktails—a collection of mixed drinks usually made of lemon or lime juice, some sort of sweetener, and egg whites. Egg Sour is the color of one of those drinks—a soft, off-white shade with some subtle, citrus-y, yellow undertones.

Egg Sour
Hex #FFF4DD
RGB 255, 244, 221 
CMYK 0, 4, 13, 0

Egg White

Egg White is extremely similar in color to Egg Sour, albeit slightly more yellow. In real life, the whites of a raw egg are mostly or even completely translucent. However, when cooked, they tend to take on more of this off-white shade, with a definite yellow tint running throughout.

Egg White
Hex #FFEFC1
RGB 255, 239, 193 
CMYK 0, 6, 24, 0

Egg White Yellow

Egg White Yellow is a variant of “true” Egg White, but as the name might imply, it’s far more yellow than its predecessor. Egg White Yellow is much closer in shade to the color of scrambled eggs or of an egg white that’s been fully mixed with the yolk. The color is mostly yellow with some brighter brown undertones.

Egg White Yellow
Hex #E0C88D
RGB 224, 200, 141 
CMYK 0, 11, 37, 12

Egg Yolk

Egg Yolk is the bright, sunny color of a standard chicken egg’s yolk. It’s a lot brighter than Egg White Yellow or any of the other traditionally egg-themed colors, with more of a “true yellow” appearance overall, although it does have some slight orange undertones.

Egg Yolk

CMYK 0, 11, 76, 0

Eggplant

This dark purple fruit may be known as an aubergine in European countries or a brinjal in Southeast Asia and South Africa, but to the rest of the world, it’s an eggplant. Eggplants typically have a dark, reddish-purple skin—and it is this specific shade of warm, dark purple that gives this color its name.

Eggplant
Hex #990066
RGB 153, 0, 102 
CMYK 0, 100, 33, 40

Eggshell

Eggshell may seem like a bit of a misnomer at first, since the eggs laid by various birds can be found in nearly every color around the world. However, when most of us picture the classic chicken eggs found at our local grocery store, we’re probably picturing this pale shade of tan off-white.

Eggshell
Hex #F0EAD6
RGB 240, 234, 214 
CMYK 0, 3, 11, 6

Eggshell Brown

If Eggshell is the most common egg color, Eggshell Brown is close runner up. Eggshell Brown is a warm shade of orange brown that draws its inspiration from the bright, warm, and usually speckled color that pops up at farms and tables around the world.

Eggshell Brown

RGB 216, 152, 90 
CMYK 0, 30, 58, 15

Egyptian Blue

Egyptian Blue is a rich shade of bold, dark blue found in ancient Egyptian art and architecture. Dating back thousands of years, the calcium copper silicate used to create the pigment is considered to be the first synthetic pigment in recorded history. Although modern scientists have been able to reconstruct the unique composition that created this shade, the formula was actually lost following the collapse of Rome.

El Paso

El Paso is a dark shade of brown that borders on black, inspired by the Old Western energy and endless potential found lurking beneath the surface in the quickly growing Texas city that shares the same name as the color itself.

El Paso
Hex #1E1708
RGB 30, 23, 8 
CMYK 0, 23, 73, 88

El Salva

As a name, “El Salva is derived from the Spanish word “salvar”, meaning “to save”. As a color, El Salva is a dramatic shade of dark reddish brown, conjuring up the idea of salvation through action, passion, or even through violence—a bold shade with an almost purple undertone for extra energy.

El Salva

CMYK 0, 57, 64, 44

Elbas

The island of Elba, off the coast of Italy, has been renowned since ancient times for its iron ores and the fumes that its various mining operations have produced. Today, it’s mostly known as the exiled location of Napoleon Bonaparte. As a color, Elbas draws of the island’s history to create a tarnished yellow color with some hotter red undertones.

Elderberry

Elderberry is a dark bluish purple shade that draws its inspiration from the fruit of the same name. Found throughout the Northern Hemisphere and in parts of the Southern Hemisphere, elderberries derive their rich purplish back hue from the same natural pigments found in cranberries, blueberries, and grapes.

Electric

The first of nearly fifteen different “electric” colors on this list, Electric is not nearly as energetic as you might be expecting. Electric is a very dark greenish-gray shade with some purple-brown undertones running throughout to create an overall brown or brown-gray resulting color.

Electric
Hex #55534F
RGB 85, 83, 79

Electric Blue

Electric Blue is a little more in line with the typical “electric family” shade. It’s a bright, excited shade of pale blue with just enough yellow to push it even brighter and give it the jazzy, energetic feel that will remain the theme throughout this subcategory.

Electric Blue
Hex #7DF9FF
RGB 125, 249, 255 
CMYK 51, 2, 0, 0

Electric Crimson

The name “crimson” is derived from the Old Spanish word for the Kermes beetle—the beetle whose dried, crushed shells produced the vibrant red shade. Electric Crimson has much more of a yellow undertone than traditional crimson typically boasts, and the end result is a hot, vivid shade of bright orange-red.

Electric Crimson
Hex #FF003F
RGB 255, 0, 63 
CMYK 0, 100, 75, 0

Electric Cyan

Similarly, Electric Cyan has a little bit more of a green undertone than “true” cyan normally displays. Because cyan is typically just defined as any color between green and blue, there is some overlap between shades, and Electric Cyan is technically a brighter variant of what we usually refer to as “digital Cyan”.

Electric Cyan

RGB 0, 255, 255 
CMYK 100, 0, 0, 0

Electric Green

Electric Green has quickly become a popular color among graphic and traditional artists alike due to its bright, optimistic appearance and eye-catching appeal. It’s close in shade to a traditional lime color, but with enough yellow to make it even more “electric.”

Electric Indigo

True indigo is an extremely dark shade of purplish blue or even bluish-black that was highly prized by the ancient Romans. Electric Indigo, on the other hand, brightens the indigo base considerably in order to create a shade that’s a lot closer to a true, traditional blue with just a little bit of an extra kick.

Electric Indigo

Electric Lavender is a vivid shade of purplish pink that relies on those brighter red undertones to differentiate between this shade and the more mellow, muted, “true” lavender.

Electric Lavender
Hex #F4BBFF

Electric Lime

Earlier, we saw that Electric Green verges on lime, so it should be no surprise that Electric Lime borders on an even brighter shade of green. With an extremely strong yellow base, Electric Lime is an almost sickly shade of pale yellow-green.

RGB 204, 255, 0 
CMYK 20, 0, 100, 0

Electric Pink

Compared to true pink, Electric Pink may look a little more restrained at first glance, but this is only due to the strong yellow undertones running throughout. The end result is a bright, light pink with a subtle orange-red tint.

Electric Pink
Hex #F187B7
RGB 241, 135, 183 
CMYK 0, 44, 24, 5

Electric Purple

Like Electric Pink, Electric Purple gets more than the usual amount of red running beneath the surface. As a result, Electric Purple looks more like a deep lavender variant than a true purple, with plenty of heat and energy.

Electric Purple
Hex #BF00FF

Electric Ultramarine

Ultramarine, derived from the Latin word for “beyond the sea”, was originally made of crushed lapis lazuli for an expensive blue pigment. Electric Ultramarine captures some of that intense blue shade, but in a much lighter variant for a faster-paced feeling.

Electric Violet

Electric Violet is a variation on “true” violet—a soft, reddish purple shade inspired by the flower of the same name. Electric Violet takes that color and dials up the intensity, adding a little bit more red in order to create a warmer, more excited color.

Electric Violet
Hex #8F00FF

Electric Yellow

Finally, Electric Yellow is a bright yellow shade with enough saturation to keep it from looking washed out. Out of all the “electric” shades, Electric Yellow is the most likely to be actually electric, drawing inspiration from the glow of an electric light bulb.

Electrum

You may not know it from looking at the color itself, but Electrum is named after a naturally occurring blend of gold and silver that the ancient Greeks referred to as “white gold”. As a color, Electrum doesn’t look gold or silver so much as it looks like a light shade of soft golden brown.

Elephant

When you picture an elephant, you’re probably thinking of a pale gray shade, but the color Elephant is a lot darker than that typical mental picture. Elephant is a very dark shade of bluish gray that borders on black, inspired by the sheer height, weight, and size of the largest land mammals in the world.

Elephant

Elephant Grey

Elephant Grey is probably a little bit closer to the mental image of an elephant—a soft grayish brown shade that clearly draws its inspiration from the dusty skin of an elephant as it makes its way across the wide-open plains that it calls its home. Elephant Grey has a bit of a pink or red undertone running throughout for added warmth and character.

Elf Green

Elf Green is a bright, cheerful shade of dark green. This specific green color draws its inspiration from the green clothes often seen on traditional elf illustrations. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, this color was the go-to for any woodland sprites, pixies, or elves.

Elm

Very similar in shade to Elf Green but with more of a bluish undertone, Elm is a cool, dark greenish blue shade with a grayed-out undertone. The shade was inspired by the shade found underneath a stand of elm trees—large, flowering trees that can grow naturally on nearly every continent.

Elm

Elm Green

By contrast, Elm Green is inspired more directly by the tree itself. Noticeably paler than Elm, Elm Green has a stronger yellow undertone that hearkens back to the leaves and bark of the elm tree. Central Park, in New York City, is home to more than a thousand individual elm trees, which clearly display the color pictured here.

Emerald

True emeralds are usually a lot darker than this particular shade—at least, true emeralds with any measure of value—but as a color, Emerald draws more of its inspiration from the Emerald City in Wizard of Oz. The end result is a bright, cheerful shade of medium light green, with just enough blue to keep it from looking neon.

Eminence

As a word, “eminence” is usually used to denote distinction, greatness, or importance. As a color, Eminence is a bold shade of dark purple with bright red undertones that hearkens back to the ancient Roman era, when purple was reserved only for the extremely wealthy and powerful in Roman society.

Emperor

Emperor is another dark shade, so deep brown that it almost passes for a true black shade in certain lights. Emperor is inspired by the power, reach, and impact that often goes hand in hand with that word. Even if we don’t see many emperors around today, we still can recognize the sheer authority that the title conveys.

Empress

We’ve just seen Emperor as a color, so it should come as no surprise that Empress is extremely similar in origin, even if it’s also several shades lighter. Overall, Empress is a muted purplish-gray color with some strong brown undertones, which serve to brighten the color and give it a softer, sweeter appearance.

Encore

The theater is the place where you’re most likely to hear shouts of “Encore! Encore!”, so it’s hardly surprising that the color Encore draws its inspiration from the trappings of that same place. Encore is a rich shade of deep, dark red with some subtle brown undertones, inspired by the curtains and the stage of the theater itself.

Endeavour

Endeavour, the British spelling for “endeavor”, is a bold word that carries connotations of courage, optimism, and an almost reckless confidence.
