Meaning of the name:
Colin is a diminutive of Nicolas. Great Britain adopted it from the Middle Ages and it remains frequently attributed. In France, the name Colin makes shy appearances, far ahead of the timeless Nicolas. Maybe it will come out of the water ... Saint Nicolas de Myre was bishop in Asia Minor in the 9th century. It is one of the most popular saints of Christendom, but it has mostly been served by legends. He would have raised three children who had been slaughtered and put to salt by an innkeeper. Hence his role of distributing gifts to children in the Scandinavian countries, Germanic and in the east of France. The Colin are celebrated on December 6th. His derivatives: Colan, Cole, Collin, Nicolas.
