My 1st son is named Colton. When I named in 1997 it was a fairly uncommon name. After his birth there was 1 other baby born in our small town of Sulphur, Louisiana named Colton. Since 1997 the name Colton has become very popular & I've seen it spelled many ways. But I'll always be partial to COLTON.
Me and my husband named our son colton after a close friend of ours and we love it! We've been calling him Cole for short which we did not intend to do since we love the name Colton, but when you have a toddler and you're always yelling his name (can't count all the times we've said "Come on Colton!") you start to shorten it lol. We are planning to name our daughter "Cecilia" someday and we love it just like that, but we'll probably end up shortening her name too and calling her "cece". But if you're reading this and you are expecting your first child, just know that you will probably end up doing that with the name you choose too!
