If you've installed the xorg-x11-libs-data package, you'll
find the list in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt

If you haven't installed that package, and don't want to, I'm
sure a google for rgb.txt will uncover a copy or two.

Another option if you've installed the xorg-x11-bin package
is to run the showrgb command.

Unless you can't resist the idea of requesting a foreground such 
as PapayaWhip, you can also specify colours numerically using the 
standard X11 syntax, e.g. "rgb:c0/00/f0", or "#c000f0".

"man X", then search for "COLOR NAMES", for more extensive info.
