They seem to pretty accurately describe the colors they represent so why would we want to change their names? Can you give an example of why we'd want to do that? I'd love to change the actual color, e.g. Green for instance.

Maybe you'd want to separate files or color code them using other than the color name?

Because they can't come up with anything actually useful to tell us thats not blindingly obvious!

I for example use colors to mark my files and I changed names of those labels. For example red files are critical to my work or very important so I named red as Work. With Blue color I use to mark my personal files, with green my multimedia files (like my own movie clips, or multimedia keynotes). Sometimes I host some of my friends files so I mark them with yellow color wich is named as Friend's. There are tons of posible soultions, be creative geez. You want sites like this one to serve you every single solution?

Also you can build your own applescript or folder action wich uses those labels NAMES. Be creative.

I like more color in my colors. Leopard's labels are disappointingly pallid compared to Tiger's

Is there a way to search for color labels in spotlight?

I can change both colors and names for my folders, using a little utility,(haxie),called 'Labels X'from UNSANITY.

Don't know if it works in Leopard, though.
