Some possibilities include:
1. The Black Sea was given that name because the lack of oxygen in the water prevents the development of microorganisms, making it appear black.
2. It was called the Black sea because it was a Sea of Death. Sailors of long ago, if caught in a storm, usually died because of the absence of islands at which to harbour, and the ferocity of the storms that hit.
3. The intense fogs which develop over the Black sea absorb the light, making the water appear black.
4. At a certain depth its waters become toxic and poisonous.
5. The Black Sea got its name from the Ottoman Turks. 'Kara (Black)' denotes 'North' in Medieval Turkish, as in Kara Denizi- Kara Sea north of Siberian Yakut Turks, similar to Black Sea.
6. It may be because of ancient colors of cardinal directions. Black is North, red is South, and yellow is East.
The Black Sea got its name from the Romans, they called it "Pontious Euxinus", which means "friendly sea". One reason for the Black Sea's name is because of its heavy fogs. They make the water look dark during the winter

Well, there are two seas that I know of, that are named by color. One is the Black Sea, and the other is called the Red Sea.
The sea was first named by the ancient Greeks who called it "Inhospitable Sea." The sea got this reputation because it was difficult to navigate, and hostile tribes inhabited its shores. It was later named the Black Sea because of its hostility and mixture of hydroden sulfide. The Black Sea has a depth of over 150 meters, and its waters are filled with hydrogen sulfide for almost two kilometers.
The Black Sea is located in southeastern Europe, with Ukraine to its north and Turkey to its south. Its name comes from the Ottomans: In medieval Turkish, the word for "black" and the word for "North" were the same.
There are four seas named after colours:Black sea.White sea.Red sea.Yellow sea.
None. You're probably thinking of the red sea and the black sea, not oceans, as such.
Because the Mediterranian is relatively clear, and the Black Sea runs into it (via the Aegean Sea, just another name, it's still part of the Mediterranian Sea); the Black Sea appears Black when compared to the Mediterrainian Sea. Visibility is poor and air is almost non-existent in the depths of the Black Sea. The Yellow Sea has sand particles blown onto it by the deserts in China, and give the sea a yellowish appearance when sailing upon it. The Red Sea has a seasonal bacteria upon it's surface, giving it a redish appearance.
The expression Black Sea has a not known and sure explanation today; possible are:- The Black Sea has frequently strong storms; in the antiquity and Middle Age, up to 20th century the navigation was frequently dangerous; and bad was associated with black.- During winter and under clouds the sea surface appear as black.- In the Middle age Turks associated kara (black) with the North.- The Scythic origin of the name seems not credible.etc.
