This name sounds so disgusting. I don't even like it.

I never really liked this name at all for some reason. It's pronounced exactly like coal and sounds too much like Coca-Cola.

My little brother is named Cole. I love the name Cole! I love a lot of C names and find Cole to be such a cute, sweet, not overly common name that will age well. My brother is still very young and we call him Coley and Cobo for nicknames. :)

Cole is possibly a shortened form of Nicholas.

The name "Cole" has a Greek origin as well. The Greek origin appears to stem from the name "Nicholas" which also means "victory to the people" or "people's victory." This is how my parents named me. Researching my name in years past, I've found numerous sources stating this as well. I'd appreciate it if you'd add this context.

On a whimsical note: Cole Slaw is named thus because Cole/Kol means "cabbage" in a couple of languages.

Cole also comes from Nicholas (Biblical). Nicholas most likely passed through English and Italian versions to reach Cole. In Irish, Cole can mean boy as well.

Cole is a name I absolutely plan to use for my first (or only) son. I love the simplicity and practicality of it. There is such a 'coolness factor' that comes with the name when I do hear it, which is not often. If I had two sons (twins or not) I would name them Cole and Dean. I'm in love with those names and love how excellent they go together! (:

This name reminds me of Nicole more then Nicholas. I like it on a girl.

I personally love the name Cole for both boys and girls. The problem is it says that Cole is only a masculine name, but it's not. To me, it's a unisex name.

I never thought much about the name Cole until I saw a Starbucks cup in the trash with the name "Coal" scrawled on it. I never found out if it was a joke, if the barista couldn't spell, if that was actually the person's name. Now I can never hear the name Cole without thinking of a sooty carbon compound.

My maiden surname was Cole, and I honestly LOVED it as a surname... my new one is much messier. I named my son Cole, for multiple reasons - 1) it's a homage to my family's roots, and sometimes I feel like it's hard for mothers to pass a naming tradition to their sons 2) it's a simple, strong name that's perfect for both a little boy and a grown man, and 3) my little boy has deep brown (almost black) eyes and was born with dark brown hair... his name is a literal match to himself.

It's a little weird when gathering with the very extended family, such as at weddings and such, but both of our immediate families thought that it was a wonderful idea.

While I saw that the name Cole was "trendy" I disagree completely I have met very few people named Cole besides myself. While Cole may seem like an ugly name because it reminds you of what is supposedly put in naughty kids stockings, that doesn't mean you have to hate the name when you hear it. If you think that Cole is a bland name think again. Cole, while it is a short name, it was used as a nickname for people with dark hair or dark skin because of the color of coal, but that does not mean it has to be a nickname. I know somebody with a last name Cole and I find it is a suiting name. I understand if you think I'm being biased because of my name but I'm not. I find this name suitable for the people that have it and think it should be used more by itself instead of some abbreviation for Nicholas.

This is a sexy, handsome and cool sounding name for a guy. :D Cole MacGrath off the video game Infamous is who I think of. :D.

The name Cole makes me think of a male with dark features. Definetly black hair or at least dark brown. Blonde hair as long as their eyes are brown.
I can't picture a redhead named Cole for the life of me! Lol.

I know twins named Cole and Tristan. I think the names together sound awesome!
MonkeyRia  5/14/2014
I'm sorry, I just can't not think of literal "coal" every time I hear this annoyingly popular name.
TomCat2  1/10/2014
My sons middle name! I love it. To me it sounds mysterious and I love that it's not too common.
Emmettsmomma2010  10/29/2013
This given name is also frequently used as a nickname for other names starting with Col-, such as Colby and Colton. I myself actually know an American man named Colton who has always gone by Cole in his life.
Lucille  9/19/2013
My name is Nicole, and (as I feel it is too girly for me) I'm thinking about asking people to call me Cole. I love the name, and I think it makes a great nickname for a Nicole that doesn't want to stick with the girly-sounding Nicole or Nikki (or Nicki or Nicci or Nikky or however you deign to spell it). It's a great name.
RoseWeasley95  2/23/2013
Kind of weird that not many other people agree, but this name is sooo über trendyyy! It's not the worst name ever, but honestly, it sounds like the word coal. Which is what you get in your stocking on Christmas if you're bad.

Don't like it. It's too trendy, and it looks like it should be short for Nicole and therefore girly.

Cole is also the nickname for girls named Nicolette.
Eiya Loki  6/2/2009
I thought this was a nickname for Nicholas. It could always be used as one. By itself I do not like Cole, but as a nickname for Nicholas it is good.
― Anonymous User  12/24/2008
Every Cole I know (6 of them) do not have dark features at all! I think of Cole as a bright name, despite that it sounds like 'coal'.

Brianna Angela  8/3/2007
I used to not like this name because it reminded me too much of 'coal' which I wouldn't want to see as a name. But after I met a good friend, Cole, I like it because I have a good image when I think of it.
― Anonymous User  6/10/2007
I named my second son Cole. But I added another first name after Cole, because it is such a short name. He is Cole Anthony. I just love that Nicholas idea, that's brilliant! Cute nicknames occur from Cole as well. Like Coleslaw!
sprynk  6/2/2007
I think this name is so cute spelled "Cohl." It makes it more unique and less common.
elysa  3/14/2007
Positive connotations with this name, the Cole I know is pretty rad. I can't see anyone else with the name, though. That would be weird.

I've seen it spelled Kohl.
MThenard  2/26/2007
Really? More than awful. "Kohl" is the German word for "cabbage" - so, yeah, that's a cute name for a person, sure!
LoQuiero  2/4/2008
This is a very nice name. It's strong yet soft. I think a boy or man named Cole would be very sweet and kind for some reason.
― Anonymous User  2/23/2007
I don't really like this name on its own. It seems too simple and short. I find it boring. But it would make an awesome short form for Nicholas, as was already mentioned.
scarletquillraven  2/14/2007
I heard from a boy named Cole in my school that his name means "cabbage farmer". I just thought that was interesting.

Cole short for Nicholas? That's a great idea!

I like this, but it feels too short for a first name on its own. I think I would use it as an unusual nickname for Nicholas.
