This was the name of a powerful hurricane in 1954. Because it was damaging, the name "Carol" was retired, and won't be used as a hurricane name for a long time, if ever again.

When I was in elementary school, when we misbehaved we were sent to the "caroles", which were a line of desks with high sides where we would sit and write "I will not _______" over and over. This was in Northern NY in the 1980s. Interestingly, my mom's name is Carol and the association always seemed a little fitting!

Feminist poet: Carol Ann Duffy.
You should just read some of her work - pretty gruesome and totally anti-male! This woman is scary but rocks!

I used to love the name Carol until my cousin Josh started calling my brother Carl that. Now I'm not too big on the name anymore. I do like it better spelled Carole though.

Carol is a too-old fashioned name for me. I prefer Carolyn or Caroline, but not Carol.

This name is very boring and common for a girl, but for a boy, it sounds quite unique and masculine, for some reason.

Carol is famous advertisement for wearing safety goggles. (Carol never wore her safety goggles. Now she doesn't need them).

I just love this name for a boy~ It's a bit whimsical, but not overly feminine.

So pretty. Makes me think of... well, a carol. A song, a melody.

It looks better spelled this way rather than "Carole" I think. The e at the end looks unnecessary and pretentious, so if you pick this name, you should probably just stick with Carol.

What a cute, pretty and charming name. :)

I don't like this name. I know a lot of middle aged Carols and it feels like a very 70s name. Adding the e to make it Carole just makes it seem pretentious to me. It's not a bad name, really, just not for me.

Miss Carol is a minor character from the cartoon Rugrats. She is a kids' show host who absolutely hates kids and used profanity to describe them. Angelica hears the bleeped-out word and later repeats it when she appears on Miss Carol's show.

There's nothing wrong with an old name, but this is so old that it's weird. I can only imagine 40+ people named this. So I much prefer Caroline or Carolina.
