    Colwyn?

    Would Colwyn (pronounced Cole-Win) be a good name for a girl. I love the nicknames cole, colie and wynnie and thats what drew me to this name. I also think that it is very out of the box. Plus I love the name Colette and my partner hates it so I thought of this name instead and wanted to know what you berries thought of it before I introduce it to him.

    I don't care for Colwyn at all, sorry. It sounds sort of made up to me, and the nicknames Cole, Colie, and Wynnie/Winnie can be reached through other names like Coralie, Cordelia, and Winifred.

    Colwyn is a traditional Welsh (I believe Welsh) boys name. Besides the fact that it's traditionally a boys name, it sounds super masculine. I agree with Athena, other names could get you the nicknames you like and sound more feminine.

    Colanda
    Colleen
    Coloma
    Arwen/Arwyn
    Eowyn
    Gwendolyn

    Or if it's just that you wanted a name like Colette, here's some -ette names, one of which has the nickname Cole.

    Annette
    Antoinette
    Babette
    Cosette
    Jeannette
    Josette
    Juliette
    Odette
    Nicolette -- could have your Cole, Colie nickname
    Violette
    Wynette -- could have your nn Wyn or Wynnie

    I think it's a Welsh name too, but the reason it is a boys name is because of the -wyn ending. If it ended in - wen it would be considered a girls name.

    Also, i love Dantea's suggestions of Cosette and Nicolette.
