Hi there. Thoughts on Cole please. I think it's simple but different. It was also my mum's maiden name. Quite like Colton too, but would probably just go for Cole. He would be Cole Alexander smile

That was my baby boy name (But he was a she!) I love it.

I think Cole Alexander is lovely.

I love it. It's got everything going for it - a nice name in its own right, short, simple, unusual enough but definitely a 'real name', and for you, a lovely family connection. Go for it.

I like it. It reminds me of the musician Cole Porter.

Sorry, I don't like it- but not for any strong objectionable reason.

Cole was a character in Falcon Crest (80s American soap opera), played by the chap who also played Perry Mason's sidekick in those films. So I always think of him when I hear that name! (Not necessarily a bad thing and probably just shows my age! Had the same reaction when a friend was suggesting Blake as a name for her DS - could just picture Krystle Carrington with massive shoulder pads circa 30 years ago.....)

Naff. Horrible. Better than Colton is the only positive.

MrsCaecilius Tue 17-May-16 11:44:33

Old King?

I know a lovely boy called Cole, so it is "yes" from me

nectarini1983 Tue 17-May-16 13:57:18

Sounds very American but I kinda like it!

disappoint15 Tue 17-May-16 14:03:01

Sounds like 'coal' and 'kohl'.

LadyAntonella Tue 17-May-16 15:01:42

Not my cup of tea personally, but only as I think it might sound weird in my accent and the accents where I live.

LadyAntonella Tue 17-May-16 15:02:46

I don't like Colton either (not a fan of Clayton and they sound similar) but I really like Colt.

And his brother Abel?

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Tue 17-May-16 15:21:16

Cat' wasn't that cain?

We know 2 coles.
One age 13, the other about 2.

I have heard Cole as a nn for Nicolas.

Short snappy boy name. Easy to say.easy to spell.

Go for it.

KittyKrap Tue 17-May-16 15:43:49

I like Cole! You been watching The Affair?

DixieNormas Tue 17-May-16 15:45:14

There's a Cole at ds4s nursery, I love it

catkirk Tue 17-May-16 17:08:36
