My favorite boys' name when I was young, and I still love it now. I would choose Collin over Colin because the latter is more likely to be pronounced like the synonym for intestine

One of my top boy's names. Has history but isn't at all trendy and has a very nice gentle sound. I also love the Secret Garden association.
