"My name is Colleen with 2 l's! People ALWAYS pronounce it COAL-een, or COLIN! There is no i in my name, I don't understand how people misunderstand that!!" Aug. 30, 2006:
"My name is Coleen, with one "l"! I love it. I'm 26 now, but even as a kid I loved it! I love it becasue I rarely run into another Coleen. I don't want to have the same name as every other person I meet!" Apr. 19, 2006:
"My name is Coleen, with one "L"! I didn't care for it too much as a kid, but now as a 26 year old, I love it. It's different from the traditional Colleen, with two "L's" and forget ever finding a coffee mug or something like that with your name spelled right, but that's what makes it special! Oh, and even your own family members will mispell it with the double "L's"!!!" Feb. 27, 2006:

"My name is Nicolene and derived from Nicholas, which is also where Coleen comes from. It means "victorious people". Little kids tend to call me Coleen,because they miss the "Ni-" part." Jan. 9, 2008:
