Searching through deep nethack hides of my brain...
Is there a purple :? Nooo, errr, I need to play more. Doesn't matter actually, the idea is good anyway.

Purple : by analogy with purple L and purple h, I guess.

It's not really all that funny, and it doesn't work as a newt joke because Dudly actually kills the newt.

Newt-king, maybe? Newt of Yendor?

I'd watch out for the Newt of Yendor. He carries the dread Newtonomicon, a tome of fell and awesome newtly power.

It's a newt king, the leader of them all!

Did someone say "Newtley"?

Purple : because of this source code comment in monst.c:
[...]
* Guidelines for color assignment:
*
* * Use the same color for all `growth stages' of a monster (ex.
* little dog/big dog, baby naga/full-grown naga.
*
* * Use colors given in names wherever possible. If the class has `real'
* members with strong color associations, use those.
*
* * Favor `cool' colors for cold-resistent monsters, `warm' ones for
* fire-resistent ones.
*
* * Try to reserve purple (magenta) for powerful `ruler' monsters (queen
* bee, kobold lord, &c.)

*
* * Subject to all these constraints, try to use color to make as many
* distinctions as the / command (that is, within a monster letter
* distinct names should map to distinct colors).
*
* The aim in assigning colors is to be consistent enough so a player can
* become `intuitive' about them, deducing some or all of these rules
* unconsciously. Use your common sense.
