Editor’s Corner: Bluetiful

The Crayola shade Dandelion is out and Bluetiful is in. Crayola recently announced the name of a new blue crayon called Bluetiful,and not everyone is happy about the new name because it isn’t a real word.

Bluetiful is a portmanteau of the words blue and beautiful.

Earlier this year, Crayola asked fans to vote for one of five possible names for the new crayon. The options were: Blue Moon Bliss, Bluetiful, Dreams Come Blue, Reach for the Stars, and Star Spangled Blue. Bluetiful was the winner.

Whether you love or hate the new name, it sure is a heck of a lot easier for kids to say than YInMn blue, which is the blue pigment that inspired the new crayon. YInMn blue is named after the elements that it contains: yttrium, indium, and manganese, and oxygen. Click here to learn more about YInMn blue.
