Use dvipsnames colors

The dvipsnames colors can be used with the color package as well as with the xcolor package, for example:
\usepackage[dvipsnames]{color} ... \color[named]{PineGreen}
or like that:
\usepackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor} ... \color{PineGreen}

Use svgnames colors

The svgnames colors need the package xcolor with the option svgnames. They can be used as follows:
\usepackage[svgnames]{xcolor} ... \color{Crimson}

The simplest way is using both options:
\usepackage[svgnames, dvipsnames]{xcolor}
... \color{Crimson} red text \color{PineGreen} green text
