My name is an ugly colour :(
@bentossell looks like most names get a shade of brown :-/

Great idea, but taking the average of 25 images pretty much guarantees you'll get a bad result for anything other than very straightforward color searches. Should try some more sophisticated measures of central tendency. Also many images have a white (other other color) background which throws off your result a lot. e.g. "blood" gets you a weird pink hue, "daisy" gets you a greenish blue...

Wow, this is pretty cool. What would be great is if it showed you some of the images as well, and perhaps listed some of the other common colours. I think it would be better if, instead of averaging, it found the most common colours, averaging shades of a particular colour into the most common for each. For example, a search for my school, "Inquiry Hub," would return very particular shades of green and orange, our new colours. Searching for Canada would return red and white.
