Hey there ladies! I need a little help for an ongoing discussion with my DH. He looovvvves the name Colton. I think it's mostly because he loves the Colts though, and I don't know if I can get over that. He says he likes the name anyways and plus, it's a cool association and even cooler since I have a horse.

I'm certainly not sold on Colton, but I absolutely love the name Cole. DH says Cole is "okay, I guess...not great."

So, the questions are: 1---which do you prefer??? 2----Could you use the name Colton with a NN Cole? Or would it be weird having me call him Cole and Daddy calling him Colton or Colt???

Thanks for your help!

I'm with you on this one, that's a weird association!

Plus, Cole sounds so much better than Colt OR Colton!

I don't mind Colton but I definitely prefer just Cole on its own.

BTW, you have the cutest furbabies

I see nothing wrong with you naming your son Colton and nn'ing him Cole. If you do it that way then you kind of have the best of both worlds, kwim?
Our daughter's name is Bethany, but we call her Toot...so It almost doesn't even matter what you name your kid because you'll end up calling them something else anyway...

I love both the names; one of the benefits to Colton was to be able to call him Cole for me! I think it's totally fine if you call him Cole and your husband calls him Colt or Colton. I would be all for it! You're actually in a great place since most couples fight over whole different names not even alike at all!

Oooh yay! Everyone likes Cole too! And thinks we could both have want we want, that's good news too!

Thanks for the compliment on my furbabies...they are definitely our babies for now! Our lab is Maycie, kitty is Oliver, and my horse is Count.

I'm neutral on Cole and Colton (I don't love them but I don't dislike them either). But, I really don't like Colt.....and I'm from Indianapolis.

I like Cole but you could have his full name as Colton and you call him Cole for short

You could use Colton with the NN Cole but it may be odd for you & DH to be calling your DS a different name.
