Though named colors are not ordered enough, they are incredibly convenient for creating demos: you needn't run a graphical editor to get some HEX-codes of colors, you needn't any color pickers because you can just type a name of the desired color. Named colors are great time savers!
I often use them while writing styles for markup or just playing with codes, so I took a list of named colors from the spec, sorted them by hue and brightness (visually) and created some palettes. I hope, my tiny tool will be useful for someone else : )
If you use named colors and have preferred color sets, feel free to contribute your palettes.
If you would like to see a selected palette right on the page while you write the code, there is an chrome extension for that.
