My whole family is named Colby. It's a tradition in my family. This name means so much to us.

I like the way this name sounds, but I would never name someone this because it always reminds me of Colby Jack cheese. :(

I have also met several girls named Colby.

My daughter's name is Kolbie. I changed the spelling to make it more feminine and to not associate with cheese. :)

I have always liked the name Colby. Not overly used which is nice. I do personally prefer it for a boy though.

There is a kind of cheese called colby cheese, and it is orange. (It is similar to cheddar.) There is also colby-jack cheese, which is a combination of colby and Monteray Jack cheeses.

Colby is a great name for a boy. I know a 12 year old boy with this name, he is a pretty neat kid.

Colbie Caillat is a pop singer. I like it spelled better with -ie.

Colby to me is WAY too feminine for a boy. It just doesn't strike me as a masculine name.

My name is Colby. I love the name for a girl. It's very unique. I've only met one other female Colby. I used to hate my name when I was young, but it really grew on me. The cheese jokes get old, but there could definitely be worse jokes.

I don't like this name. Makes me think of cheese.

Josh Turner, a country singer, and his wife have had their second son. They named him Colby. I like it.

This name sounds very juvenile. It is also overused and celebrity-inspired. I can't picture this name on a resume.

Colby Donaldson is a three-time Survivor contestant who appeared on Australian Outback, All-Stars, and Heroes vs. Villains.

The huge increase in boys named Colby in 2001 is because that was the year Survivor: The Australian Outback aired. It was the most popular TV show at the time and the most popular player to appear was Colby Donaldson.

My husband's middle name is Colby. I wouldn't have put it past his father to name him after the cheese. Ironically the actually meaning of the name relates to coal, or coal mining. My husband is a mining engineer who studied in coal mines.

It's cute, I'll admit that. But it doesn't really have much substance... It's a bit too modern and youthful for me. However, I think it would be adorable on a dog :) my only problem is when people mess up the spelling (Colbie, Kolby, etc.) and/or when it's used on girls. This name is not at all suited for a grown woman.

I love it for a boy, but these days it's probably too "girly" for a boy. I agree with post above that says it's not really suited for a grown woman. Maybe not even a grown man, now that I think about it. But it's cute for a little boy in my opinion.

Reminds me of the Mainland Colby cheese ad. "Your friend in the fridge".

I love this name. I never knew about it until I met this boy with it. Now I love the name.
