You forgot a "You mean its not teal?" option in your poll. Anyway a lot of people don't use the colour codes so that would account for some of the differences I guess.

I think I usually refer to the color as cyan, but I also think I've referred to it as light blue...

True story here. I intentionally use "gray" and "teal" just to see the spectacle.
But... It was so artistically done.

Pretty sure I refer to it as gray, even though color codes are for silver/slate. Please don't kick any more puppies.

I don't like when people refer to players by color at all. No, that is not a racial thing. The problem is that I will be more likely to read a message that invokes "thegreekdog" than a message that invokes "cyan" or "teal." I try to avoid referring to players by color (and I don't always succeed). In any event, when you have 20 or 50 or 100 games going at once, it can get confusing and time consuming to figure out what player people are referring to.

Pink gets called purple a lot. I don't know why. My old military school used to have green and pink as its colors back in the dark ages.

And yes, I called silver grey the other day. Please, MF, no more beatings!

Teal is also a color.

Also, I don't hunt. I'm a lesbian hippy living in a commune. Hunting is strictly forbidden. Murderer.

You don't hunt? Then how do you mate?

Murderer? You mean well fed non vegetarian. Vegetables is food for tasty food and if we were meant to graze our eyes would be on the side of our heads.

So CYAN it is!

1) cyan takes a little more effort to say (meh, im lazy wannafightabowdit?)
2) not everyone knows what cyan is, as it's primarily used in the photo industry....seriously i talked to one person who thought it was like ceran wrap.
3) EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER KNOWS WHAT TEAL IS
4) light blue takes longer to say
