Crayola's New Color

Earlier this year, Crayola announced it would retire the crayon color Dandelion to make way for a new color. That new color is the one you see here, inspired by a new blue pigment discovered at Oregon State University. The YInMn pigment contains yttrium, indium, and manganese, which it is named after, and oxygen. Crayola is looking for a color name that will be a little easier for those who use crayons, so they are running a contest to name it. You can enter your idea for the color name here. Be aware that the best names have already been suggested.
