Abstract: The article presents the names of colours in the primitive Hispano-Romance, the language of Christians in the Iberian Peninsula in the early Middle Ages. This language is known from notarial acts whose vocabulary was collected in the glossary Léxico hispánico primtivo. The author analyses the colour names included in it against Latin and Indo-European backgrounds. Etymologically, the core of this part of the Ibero-Romance corpus has Latin origins. The influence of the Arabic and Visigoth language resulted less than could be expected.
