Comments and insights on the name Collins: | Edit

I love Collins for a little girl! My husband and I have actually just named our sweet baby girl Collins in honor of his grandmother and gave her middle name in honor of my grandmother! We actually have had this name in mind for many years since its family names and were so happy to find out we were having a girl since she already had a name! Collins to me is the girl version of Collin. I feel the S makes it more for a girl!

Personal experiences with the name Collins: | Edit

Take it from me, don't name your baby girl Collins! My first name is Collins. I am female, and I was born in the early 1980s. My name has been a burden my entire life. I am named after a great grandparent's surname. I am always having to spell it out, correct mail that is sent to Mr. Collins, repeat, explain, correct people who call me "Collin" (which is most people who have just met me, by the way), etc. I like that my name is unique and ties into my family's Irish roots, but that's about all it has going for it.

I never heard of Collins for a girl until I saw the movie The Blind Side. I still don't like it for a girl.
