Best Answer: You should not have a name exactly, but some information is included here.
Hazel
The hazel color for the eyes is an intermediate tone between brown and green. It can also contain sectors where chestnut, amber or green are presented clearly. From the genetic point of view, an explanation for this is not clear either. However, Stanford University geneticist Barry Starr has suggested a probable model, based on a hypothetical M gene that would act on the EYCL1 gene, causing the latter to generate more melanin. The dominant allele would generate such an effect, whereas the recessive allele would be a neutral factor. Thus, EYCL1 altered by action of the M gene, and together with EYCL3, would generate hazel eye color. However, this is only a likely model.


Green eyes are the product of moderate amounts of melanin. Green is an intermediate color between brown and blue or gray tones. The genes involved in this effect are EYCL1 and EYCL3. Thus, the dominant allele for EYCL1, conjugated to any allele for EYCL3, with the exception of the dominant allele of the latter, results in the green color of eyes.
