I think the reason is the colour orange was named after the fruit, this was before carrots were orange. They were originally purple but orange ones were produced trough selective breeding as a present for a king if I remember correctly ^-^. hope I helped

Color-wise?
The spectrum holds several colors that can be classified as orange, though the only "official" orange is #FFA500 which is closer to the fruit orange than a carrot.

They couldn't bother make a better name for an orange when they realized a carrot was more orange than an orange.
