Right. There are over 16 million colors available with the RGB model. For pure grey alone there are 256 - 2 = 254 colors! (X,X,X with X between 1 and 254 inclusive; 0 is black and 255 is white) Would you like to name all these colors?
Now between X,X,Y and X,X,Y+1 there is hardly any difference, so perhaps you can do some grouping, but that still leaves thousands of color groups to name.
