What do you think of Colbie (or any spelling variations) for a girl?

Colby is a kind of cheese, so I wouldn't use it. I agree that Carly/Carlie is better.

I can't see it on a girl. I know a VERY boyish little boy named Colby.

It also looks really weird spelled any other way

I think I like Colbie best for a girl. Though, it does look a little weird to me.

I really prefer Colby for a boy. How about Kelby or or Kirby? they just seem more 'girly' to me.

I like it as Colby, but to me it's a boy name.

I listen to Colbie Caillat a lot and wondered what your opinions were
for me, I too think it looks better as a boys name, Colby....but I do think of the cheese as well so I would never use it.

I don't like Colby for a girls name! Too boy, in my opinion.

Don't like it.

1. It's a BOY name. I'm getting so tired of the "boy name for girl" trend.

2. I don't like the cre8tive spellings. Colby is the only way that looks right. Changing the spelling doesn't make it a girl name.

3. It's a cheese.

4. Even on a boy, I don't think it ages well, and sounds too cutesy for an adult.

It's not even a yummy cheese, I'd rather name my kid Provolone, Swiss, or Mozzarella.

Funny you should ask!

My name is Kolbey. I have never met anyone (a girl) with my name and have recieved compliments on it my entire life.

ETA: My mom actually saw it in a baby name book as Colby, but liked it so much she decided that she would use it even if it was a boys name!
