  • "My 10 year old son is named Kolby Lane. My husband had the name picked out before he ever met me so he got to name the first boy and I got to name our first daughter. My husband went on harvest and went to Colby, KS and Lane, OK. He just liked the two names together but spelled it with a K because he didn't want it directly associated with colby cheese. Lol" Oct. 4, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "We're looking for a boy's name and I want a K name and came across Kolby. I love it! My name is Tamie and i'm used to people misspelling it, always Tammy or Tammi, but that's never bothered me. I like the idea of using different spellings to make common names a little more unique." Jun. 1, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I needed a K name because both my older children were with a K. I watched Surviror in 2001 and liked the name Colby (one of the players). So I asked my husband if we could put a K inplace of the C and he said yes sounds good. If he were a girl it would have been Kelly. I've often thought I should have spelled it Koleby so he could be called Kole if he wanted. He loves his name but many people call him Kobe and spell it Colby. He doesn't seem to care. He doesn't even mind not finding his name on keychains.:)" May. 19, 2010: Report as inappropriate
