It's pronounced CO-lin, like Colin Powell. Collin is pronounced KAHL-in.

No, I spell my name Colin and pronounce it with a short o not a long o. I'm not a punctuation mark or a part of the anatomy I'd rather not talk about.

Actually, if you want to get phoentical about it, Collin is pronounced KAHL-Lin, with the break between the two consonants. Colin would break either before or after the l, and in this case, it is after the l for a pronunciation of KAHL-in.

It should be pronounced KAHL-in, not CO-lin, because that sounds like a body part. It reminds me of in Mr. Deeds when the guy goes "Congratulations, you have a spastic colon." Pronounce it like KAHL, because that way it won't gross people out, and it just sounds a lot better.

Mr. CO-lin Powell has no right to change my name. I have been called Colin all my life, I see no reason why this gentleman should decide to alter how my name is pronounced. Please Mr Powell leave my name as it is, Colin and not CO-lin.

I pronounce it COL-LIN. Rhymes with pollen.

The name is Col-in. I'm tired of ignorant people that want to fool themselves into believing they aren't ignorant by analyzing the differences of spellings until they completey convince themselves there's a difference. I had a teacher tell me in 6th grade that my spelling was pronounced colon because "Collin" was two parts, col and Lin. I thought "there's no lyn in my name!". And this Powell guy is a disgrace to our name. If you want it to be pronounced that way, go to the courthouse and get your name changed to Colein. I mean it annoys you when your name is spelled in a way that can possibly be pronounced either way, with society proving it to be pronounced one way, but everyone is so stupid that they not only think it's pronounced Colon, but also act like you're the dummy for spelling it with one L.
