"Our oldest son's name is Cole William. We wanted a name that could not be shortened. You can't mess with that name. The only downfall for him is that Cole is an easy name to yell, it's so short and just rolls off the tongue. He went through daycare all the way up to first grade before he ran into another Cole. He is almost 7 and we really like the name. To that user who said he gets insulted when people spell his name wrong, I would too, there must be some really ignorant people you have run into."
