I'd like to add color names for all these intervals. Seems it would qualify as a "nickname" or even as "poetry". But I don't want to step on any toes, and I *really* don't want to put a bunch of time into it, only to have someone delete all my work. What say you all?
Also I think monzos are needed for any ratio with numbers over 2 digits.
Some color name examples here:

17-limit interval names
I just added some simple 17-limit intervals to this list. I have been exploring them in my work recently. A question: are they any conventions for naming these intervals? Is there an established 17-limit analogue to "septimal," "undecimal" and "tridecimal"? How about "heptadecimal" or "septadecimal"?
I'll be glad to give them names according to a similar logic (17/15 as "septadecimal whole tone for instance), but there's no need to reinvent the wheel in case somebody's already done this work.

Ok, I answered my own question by consulting http://www.huygens-fokker.org/docs/intervals.html -- the established word is septendecimal. I updated the list with the septendecimal names on that page and came up with analogous names for the missing ones. The whole set is thus:
18/17 == small septendecimal semitone
17/16 == large septendecimal semitone
17/15 == septendecimal whole tone
20/17 == septendecimal augemented second, septendecimal minor third
17/14 == septendecimal supraminor third
22/17 == septendecimal supermajor third
17/13 == septendecimal sub-fourth
24/17 == 1st septendecimal tritone
17/12 == 2nd septendecimal tritone
26/17 == septendecimal super-fifth
17/11 == septendecimal subminor sixth
28/17 == septendecimal submajor sixth (does anyone know a better word for the complement to a supraminor than submajor?)
17/10 == septendecimal diminished seventh, septendecimal major sixth
30/17 == septendecimal minor seventh
32/17 == small septendecimal major seventh
17/9 == large septendecimal major seventh

Colons or forward slashes
TutimDeft changed the colons to forward slashes. If anyone wants to change it back, let me say first that I like it better this way also.

On the contrary, I would agree that it is better now (even if the colon is very common in German).

I am not opposed to the change to forward slashes. For my own use, I prefer to use forward slashes for actual pitches in scales (the name being a reference to some 1/1) and colons for intervals, which may or may not be from some 1/1. Thus 3/2 is a pitch in a scale that happens to be 3:2 above the pitch called 1/1. I think this distinction between members of a scale and intervals between members of scales is important, but it doesn't necessarily need to be distinguished in this particular way.
