85 Colors That Start With X (Names, Hex, RGB, CMYK)

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

As you might expect, given how few words in general start with this letter, the list of colors that begin with the letter X is relatively short. Nevertheless, thanks to words like “Xanadu”, “Xanthous”, and “Xerxes”, there are still more than 80 different colors that start with X.

Many of the colors on this list are paint colors, which means that there are a lot of neutrals and other subdued tones, but you can still find plenty of colorful shades for your next graphic design project.

List of Colors That Start With X

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

X Factor

Depending on how much reality television you watch, you might be more familiar with “The X Factor” as the title of a music competition show. However, the color X Factor takes its inspiration from the mysterious “x factor” of horse racing—an inherited mutation among thoroughbred racehorses that results in a physically enlarged horse. As a color, X Factor draws from the passion, speed, and excitement of thoroughbred racing in order to create this deep shade of bold, rich red.

Most “true” crystals or minerals in nature can be found in a wide range of colors, depending on the various impurities found within their chemical composition.

Xanthi (Duron) is more in line with the Color Guild variant, but it still remains a paler version of the first shade.

Xanthic

In Ancient Greek, the word xanthos meant yellowish or golden, which makes perfect sense given the bright, cheerful yellow appearance of the color Xanthic.
