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.

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.

My name has been Colin for 54 years. I went to American schools as a child where my name was pronounced Cullen, Colon and Kahlin. I hated my name because no one could pronounce it correctly. All these pronunciations are totally incorrect. In the last 10 years there has been debate about the one L or two L versions. The Americans are the only nationality that have made a double L version of this name. The internet has spread this falsification and now even 20 to 25 year old Australians think the LL version is the default version. Just like NISSAN (KNEESAWN) the US has again made an abomination of something that is not culturally theirs. I'm sure it grates on the Colombians when they hear an American pronounce Bogota. If you want to pronounce something correctly you need to pronounce it the way the originating culture pronounces it. COLIN is pronounced thus. The accent on the O is pronounced as in Cod or exactly Col (a mountain pass). There is no e on the end of Col so the pronunciation is not cole or khal or colon. Colon Powell didn't do anyone any favours with his version of his name and nor did the children who would have called him colon at school.
