They are the same. grin

Morado is kind of dark lilac and púrpura has som red and brown in it, but basically they are the same.

Try googling the colors and you'll see.

Hope it helps!

HI dee, not, this is regionally differently used. In Spain only naranja, and morado.

naranja = orange (the fruit)

and

anaranjado = orange (the color)

Its probably regional i would assume... In Spain I only heard the words 'naranja' and 'morado' and never the others. I even asked specifically about 'morado'.

But take my experience for what its worth. Perhaps a native speaker can provide more information.

I'm not sure about the difference between the second set, but I always thought that

naranja = orange (the fruit)

and

anaranjado = orange (the color)

Please correct me if I'm wrong!

Thanks! smile
