@Walter Hinteler,
I remeber having heard the word pomerans.
But it is such a bitter orange that one cannot eat raw. It has be prepared in one form or other. I think often as orange marmelade
They used them to decorate with clove. Of course one can use oranges instead.

@boomerang,
I think from now on I will only see oranges as boop boop's. Probably won't serve me well as I advance in my dotage.

In Korean, they use the Konglish pronunciation of "orange" (오렌지 - oh/ren/ji *flap /r/) most of the time, but they have a native word 귤 (gyool or kyool) that can apply to both oranges and tangerines.

@FBM,
I love the notion of calling them book boops. (boomerang, I'm not making fun, I just really like the name)

@boomerang,
Quote:
Is there anything else that is named for it's color?


Caesium: From Latin caesius, which means "sky blue". Its identification was based upon the bright-blue lines in its spectrum, and it was the first element discovered by spectrum analysis.

Quote:
The name orange comes from sanskrits na rangi or naranja was translated via other languages norange in English which later got to be orange


Further to Saab's excellent research:

A norange became an orange whereas the reverse happened when an ekename became a nekename then a nickname.

@FBM,
Heh. Heh. I don't think I could get away with teaching that, though.

Orange (fruit) is Tapooz in Hebrew.
Whereas the color orange is Katom (or Katohm) in Hebrew.
