I went to add a part that I know as Medium Dark Flesh to my inventory (the long
way), but instead I saw Medium Nougat instead. Is it the same color with a rename,a
nd if so, does anybody know why? Is it the official name TLG had for that color?
Did any other colors get renamed?

The term Flesh was changed to Nougat and a new color was added. Now there are
4(?) colors with nougat.

Haven’t kept up on the whole color terminology change debate, so I could be wrong,
but I think it can be distilled down to the conclusion that the term “flesh”
as applied to a color, is wrong. The whole after the fact forum debate, became
dull, so I didn’t following it all of the way down the rabbit hole. But "flesh"
bad, is what I gleaned.

But you can peruse the forum to read some of the interesting points of view on
the change, as well as any other names of colors that may be altered going forward:

Thank you all for the information; I did not know that discussion took place
(too busy sorting/listing pieces, filling orders, and playing Factorio), and
just saw the change.
