I don't know where I saw this, but if you ever find yourself not knowing what naming give color shading on your css variables consider using these adjectives to amplify the range of your available shades of colors. I like using these because they all have 4 letters so they line up beautifuly on the code editor, it massages my OCT in all the right places.
As an additional note,
cotton are better names than
white because they allow a bigger range of colors to be associated with that name intead of simply black and white.
cotton can be used interchangeably as
background-color depending on if the applied theme is a light or a dark one.
