Famous bearer is Irish actor Colin Farrell. I personally think that Colin is a beautiful and delicate name, it is short and comes out easily, just adorable!

Colin Creevey is a character in the Harry Potter books, introduced in the second part of the series. He's completely in awe of Potter, and a bit annoying in his admiration.

Colin Creevey is a character in The Secret Garden; he's lived in his bed all his life because everyone thinks he's ill and going to die. There's really nothing wrong with him and eventually he learns to walk and sees the garden.

No, Colin Creevey is a Harry Potter character. Colin Craven is the character from The Secret Garden.

Replying to Emmasj 11/30/2006: Eek, yes, you're right. I have kind of a dual image of this name - on one hand, it reminds me of a not-terribly-strong kid (Colins Creevey and Craven) and on the other hand it's a handsome-actor name (Colins Firth and Farrell).

Americans say KAHL-in and British say COL-in. Simple as. Myself I would never be able to deal if people kept saying "KAHL-in" to my face, it would be so annoying, but I guess I would get used to it. Colin is a cool name, however you say it.

This is my granddad's name (he pronounces it COLE-lin, or it at least sounds that way with my grandma's Southern drawl) and he was named after the World War II American hero, Colin Kelly.

While I'm pleased to see that Captain Hair was already mentioned, I'm surprised no one's mentioned the Doctor! And the most colorful one at that. Colin Baker (no relation to Tom Baker), a British actor who received the titular role of Doctor Who after previously appearing as a Time Lord guard named Maxil. He held the role of the sixth Doctor from 1984 to 1986.

I love this name! I think it's most typically pronounced kah-lin, but cole-in is cool too (although I personally think if you want to use that pronunciation you should spell it Cullen) anyways, this is an awesome, classic name that sounds great and will age well on the bearer :)

This is my 10 y/o sons name.
I chose Colin as I found it direct and masculine, yet refined and not brutish.
