Bonatti grey vs orkney grey

Is the orkney grey more silver than bonatti grey? And how does the Stornoway grey compare? Or just keep it the original Conniston Green? I won't resell it so resale value is of little concern and cost of paint not an issue either.
Your expert opinions are appreciated.

Bonatti is the darkest of the three with more black in it, then they went to Stornaway which was a little lighter. Orkney is a little lighter than Stornaway was and next to Bonatti would look significantly lighter and more silver.

Niagra was cool, it was even darker than Bonatti. The Orkney has some hints of Blue and Purple in it in direct sunlight. It's OK, but I prefer any of the other three, especially on a Defender. Just my $.02

My XKR is a color called Stratus Gray, I think it would make a nice color for a Defender. Dark like Bonatti was but more metallic.

Keep it green. Or Stornaway if you must.
