Cerise (/səˈrs/ or /səˈrz/; French pronunciation: ​[səˈʁiz]) is a deep to vivid reddish pink.

Etymology[edit]

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first recorded use of cerise as a color name in English was in The Times of November 30, 1858.[2] This date of 1858 as the date of first use of the color name is also mentioned in the 1930 book A Dictionary of Color.[3] However, it was used at least as early as 1845 in a book of crochet patterns.[4]

The color name comes from the French word "cerise", meaning cherry. The word "cherry" itself comes from the Norman cherise.

Distinction between the colors cerise and cherry red[edit]

In the 1930 book A Dictionary of Color it is pointed out that the color cerise has always been depicted as a somewhat bluer color than the actual color of a fresh uncooked cherry, which is denoted by a different redder color called cherry red.[5] Basically, the color cerise is a depiction of the somewhat bluer color of a cooked cherry, such as the cherries in a cherry pie. Currently, the name "Cherry" is also used for this color.[6]
