If you want to give the user an easy way to find a color by name, you should add a Search-field; preferably one that filters the items while the user is typing. You could also make it more intelligent by automatically interpreting "grey" as "gray".
EDIT: if the user types "green", he would see all green colors (darkgreen, lightgreen, ...), which you can't do with regular alphabetic sorting.
Interesting.... I might try it....
