shade named by Magnetic Fields
mainman, Stephin Merritt
. He was invited to name the colour after Pantone
was made aware of a lyric from the Magnetic Fields
song "Reno Dakota
", 'It's making me blue
, PANTONE® 292'.
The below is taken from the Pantone website (http://www.pantone.com/colorgame/answers.htm), and is Stephin's comment on how he came up with the name.
"Carolyn Eve" Green
PANTONE® 7498 C
"I named this color for my friend, Carolyn Eve. She lives in the pine-addled Rocky Mountains. However dark things grow, she is still green. If vegetables were Carolyn Eve Green, children would be happier to eat them. This is a good color for camouflage, carpet, a wristwatch or the book jacket of a collection of Russian writings, for example, Chekhov's plays. It is not advisable for lampshades, eyeshadow or milk cartons. Using it in stripes on a field of pale salmon (PANTONE® 197@50%) could be quite shocking. It would be great for biotech business cards."
