Error creating a new theme based on BrighlyBlue

I'm trying to get a new theme based on the gallery-available BrighlyBlue theme, via the orchard command line tool.
I type the following command
codegen theme MyThemeName /BasedOn:BrighlyBlue
I always get the error...
Creating Theme MyThemeName failed: base theme named BrighlyBlue was not found

This happens with BrighlyBlue only, that's quite strange to me.

I am not familiar with this theme, but could there be a typo in the referenced theme name? E.g. could it be "BrightlyBlue" instead?
When installing that theme, are you able to set it successfully to be the active theme?

That was funny!
There is a typo in the theme name, that is BrightlyBlue in the gallery, while it's spelled BrighlyBlue (without T) in the Theme.txt file.
I thought the base theme name is taken from the Theme.txt file, not from the folder name.

That's it.
Problem solved.
