    First I'd have to know what Pantone was.

    "The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another."
    Pantone - Wikipedia

    What are Pantone Colors and How Do We Use Them?
    How Pantone Became The Definitive Language Of Color

    Then, in order to decide, I'd have to be able to see the colors, not just read words describing them.

    Articulating colors in person based on a standard of official Pantone color chips is one thing. However what you actually see depends on the color management one uses for their monitor and operating system apart from hardware peripherals like color printers.

    In my case, I try to keep all color management ICC protocols identical in as much as is possible, defaulting only to Adobe RGB 1998 D65 WP 2.2 Gamma. It's how the colors I see on my monitor are properly translated to what I print in color as well.

    Even then a user may be still using very different physical settings on their monitor to interpret color based on the Kelvin scale in terms of very warm or cold color variations. The higher the number, the "cooler" (or bluer) the display. It all depends on how sophisticated your monitor is and whether or not a user is even aware of such settings and uses them to their benefit. I try to keep such settings as neutral as possible, so they don't skew my ICC profiles pertaining to the OS, monitor and other devices.

    That said, I'd still have to ask what color management the OP is using to determine whether or not the Pantone colors he sees are relatively the same ones I would see. Even then there's still no telling how different my brightness and contrast settings may be compared to others. ;)

    Ever print something multiple times in color and on different types of paper and still not have it appear as it does on your monitor? Uh huh. :oops:

    All the colors sound pretty though. It would be hard to choose I think.
    For clothes that i would wear, i would choose those considered "cool" as opposed to "warm".

    I am not looking that far ahead yet but I liked reading the names of the colors. Papaya Punch sounds like a fruit drink. :D

    I wonder who gets to name the colors? If it was me I'd make some changes. I like true nature based names. Like Sickly Green and Scab Puce for example.

    Note Pantone has different libraries for different uses. The colors that fashion companies normally use are from the Pantone Fashion, Home, and Interiors (FHI) series, with TCX being the hues for the colors on cotton.

    This link provides identifiers for colors.
    Pantone Brings the Best to Life.

    This section is at the beginning.
    upload_2019-6-26_12-22-16.png

    As you scroll down the color families gradually change.
    upload_2019-6-26_12-23-29.png

    And so on...
    Hovering over an individual square give an identifier.
    7459 C, for example, is the bottom left square in the section above.
    And 2203 C is the bottom most right square in the section above.

    Pantone Brings the Best to Life.

    The color identifiers in this area include imaginative/descriptive words, in addition to the number.

    upload_2019-6-26_16-11-27.png

    For example, the bottom left square is 16-1415 TCX Almondine.
    The topmost square on the right is 13-0849 TCX HabaƱero Gold.

    That placid blue sounds good to me.
