Just feels a little bit dry. It was popular many decades ago, not so much anymore, so in these days Carol is mostly considered as an older female name, but a similar name like Caroline is doing strong in the younger age group. Carol is alright, but not of my favorites.

So ironic that some are saying that Carol is an old-fashioned name while Caroline is not. Well, when I was growing up it was just the opposite: Carol was a popular girl's name while Caroline was old-fashioned. So much so that in the TV show Little House on the Prairie, they called Mrs. Ingalls Carolyn instead of Caroline. Because, you know, the name Caroline was just THAT awkward. I just have to laugh.

This is my name and personally, I love it, however most Carols I know are a bit older than me. I was born close to Christmas and so my family sometimes referred to me as their "Christmas Carol" I read once that it means Song of Joy, which I think is lovely. I love music, so I believe it fits me well.

This is my principal's name and I’m not really fond of her but... I LOVE THIS NAME! Carol is stunning! Breath taking, ages well, and mature. I personally think more parents should name their children names like this. Names like Carol, Deirdre, and more should be more popular unlike the over used cringe-worthy names of Jaylee, Kaylee or Jayden.

There's nothing wrong with an old name, but this is so old that it's weird. I can only imagine 40+ people named this. So I much prefer Caroline or Carolina.

I don't like this name. I know a lot of middle aged Carols and it feels like a very 70s name. Adding the e to make it Carole just makes it seem pretentious to me. It's not a bad name, really, just not for me.

It looks better spelled this way rather than "Carole" I think. The e at the end looks unnecessary and pretentious, so if you pick this name, you should probably just stick with Carol.

So pretty. Makes me think of... well, a carol. A song, a melody.

This name is very boring and common for a girl, but for a boy, it sounds quite unique and masculine, for some reason.

When I was in elementary school, when we misbehaved we were sent to the "caroles", which were a line of desks with high sides where we would sit and write "I will not _______" over and over. This was in Northern NY in the 1980s. Interestingly, my mom's name is Carol and the association always seemed a little fitting!

This was the name of a powerful hurricane in 1954. Because it was damaging, the name "Carol" was retired, and won't be used as a hurricane name for a long time, if ever again.
