Some of those colors are not part of my English vocabulary (pewter,
parchment, tangerine) or not clear (brick), so using them won't be very
convenient for me.

But I am willing to learn. :-)

Pewter is a metal alloy that tarnishes to a dull dark grey color, often used for things like chess pieces and figurines.

Maybe a better alias would be ash_grey.

Parchment is the paper that the american constitution is written on, and it's like a yellowy beige.

Tangerine is a fruit like an orange but it's a more reddish color.

By brick I mean a dark red color like what was used in Oink.

Then you have colors like chartreuse which is like a lime green with some yellow in it: The 2600 has its share of these colors.
