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.
