The order in which colors are named worldwide appears to be due to how eyes work… Wavelengths of color that are easier to see also get names earlier in the evolution of a culture.
Color names always seem to appear in a specific order of importance across cultures—black, white, red, green, yellow and blue. “For example, if a population has a name for red, it also has a name for black and for white; or, if it has a name for green, it also has a name for red,” said researcher Francesca Tria. But if a population has a name for black and white, that doesn’t necessarily mean they have a name for red.
