Comments and insights on the name Collette: | Edit

My middle name and my grandma's name is Collette. I used to hate it because I thought it sounded old, but as I got more compliments on the name I embraced it and I love it. My grandma's nickname growing up was Collie (Coe-Lee... not cah-lee like the dog.) I love the name Collette. So much that I'm dropping my last name and having my stage name be Caitlin Collette.

Personal experiences with the name Collette: | Edit

My name is Collette, I love it because it is unique and elegant. My mom had a friend named Collette when she was a kid and she loved the name so she saved it for her first daughter. I've only met 4 or 5 Collette's in my life and we've shared an instant bond over sharing such a unique name.
