Very country, and it's the name of a state.

Love, love, love this name.

Imagine a little girl named Carolina with blonde hair and blue eyes.

I like Carolina, but only pronounced with ee, like in Scandinavian languages, not ie. I really dislike it with ie. I think it doesn't need to be shortened. It's one of those names that really don't need any nicknames despite its length. I guess all the nicknames take a lot of charm from it. I think it is a very feminine name, subtle, but dynamic. Though I prefer Caroline slightly more, also with ee or i, not ie.

I'm Mexican and there are a lot of girls with the name 'Carolina'. It's pronounced with the 'R' rolled but most people can't roll their 'R's.

I much prefer this name with the pronunciation of "Lee-nuh" at the end. Much more soft and beautiful that way (:

I love this sweet, southern name. I like other southern names like this: Virginia, Tallulah, Georgia, Delta.

I love this name because of the James Taylor song. The association with the states, rather than ruining it, gives it a touch of Southern charm that I quite like.

There's an electronic rock music duo called Breathe Carolina, known for their single "Blackout".

I like the Italian/Spanish pronunciation car-o-lee-nah, very pretty. This, along with Georgia and Virginia are in my opinion the only acceptable "state" names.

Carolina is also Romanian, though it's not as common. I know a Romanian Carolina.

Seriously!? This must be a west coast name. No one on the east coast is going to name their kid after the Carolinas. Bit overkill. It's like naming your daughter after a sporting team (Go Carolina Tarheels! Or Go Carolina Panthers!). Or naming your kid after the government- which reminds me, I still need to pay my taxes. I live in the state of North Carolina, you see.

As for South Carolina- it's a poor state, a conventional place, and near last in education.

Carolina = Carry-Ol'-Lina

Not very enticing.

I like the name, but it is SO overused where I live. I know EIGHT Carolinas, but 2 of them use it as a middle name. And yet I feel like I'm forgetting somebody...

This is a very sexy name. It may not have a lot of many carriers of this name, but it just sounds hot. And it's only hot when it's pronounced Carol-Eena, not Carol-I-Na.
sddorme  7/13/2010
Carolina is one of those elegant, classy and sophisticated names you can't go wrong with. I love it, when pronounced the Spanish way - kah-ro-LEE-nah (I find the English pronunciation unappealing, sorry). It's not overly common, but still practical, in terms of spelling and pronunciation. Carolina has to be one of my favourite names. However, I wouldn't like people to shorten it to Carol. Carol has always struck me as being wet-blankety, like an aunt you don't like visiting. I might push for Lina, but it takes away the beauty of Carolina. I really don't understand some people's need to shorten already beautiful names.

Carolina is a hot name as someone said. I love this name, exotic, refreshing. The best pronunciation is Kahr-o-LEE-nuh. Beautiful, I'm writing it down to remember it.

Carolina Maria de Jesus (1915-1977) was a famous diarist and activist who lived in the slums of São Paulo, Brazil.
Anyechka  7/27/2009
I don't know why, but this is one of my favorite names ever. But I only like it pronounced kahr-o-LEE-nah. If it's pronounced kahr-o-LIEN-a, it just makes me think of the states North and South Carolina. And I would never my my kid after a state.
MtotheK  2/14/2009
I love my name. Carolina. My dad named me after his mother who died exactly 1 year before my birth. Not only does it have emotional meaning but every time a guy asks me what my name is they always have the same reaction."WOW. That's a hot name!"
carolina812r  1/6/2009
Carolina is not pronounced kahr-o-LEE-nah, but Kah-roh-LEE-nah in Spanish.
Elianita  12/15/2008
Personally I think this name sounds better when the 'i' is pronounced 'e' CAR-O-LE-NA. That's usually how it's said in Spanish.
crushcrushcrush  9/17/2008
CAROLINA means "strong but feminine" and is mainly of Latin and Germanic origin. This suggests that it should be pronounced without an American accent to truly appreciate its beauty. Meaning that an Italian/Spanish pronunciation is more appropriate. :-)

In America, the pronunciation KER-o-lien-a is reserved for the state. If it's someone's name, we usually say ker-o-LIEN-a or ker-o-LEEN-a. [noted -ed]

Carolina is absolutely divine. If I ever move to another state, I am certain I will name a daughter of mine Carolina.

The American states are pronounced ker (or kair) -o-LIE-nah.

I just recently heard about this name and fell in love with it immediately. It is so beautiful and elegant. Carrie or Lina could be used as nicknames.

I was talking about names I like with my family and my brother said he liked Carolina. I think it is so nice and beautiful, and a perfect name for his daughter.
