"I like my name and think it has a nice upbeat musical feeling to it. I always have to say it is Carole with an "e". Sometimes people are confused by the spelling and call me "Carole Lee". If I could have chosen my name I would have picked "Caroline". It is a more enduring, classic name." Dec. 13, 2009:
"My name is Carole, as a child everyone wanted to leave the E off, so I asked my Mom why she put the E on my name and she replied, because it looks finished. As I got older I am glad she added the E and agree with her that is does look finished, and it is finished." Dec. 16, 2007:
"My name is Ashleigh. I am 26 years old and am engaged to a handsome young man named Harry. My first daughter will be named Carole. If I have two more they will be Lily and Ruth Rose. My first son would be Klaus, and my next two runner ups would be Paul and David." Jul. 28, 2007:

"I too was named after Carole Lombard, born in 1961 to Italian parents. Could never understand why they didn't name me something more ethnic but wanted to be more American!! I like Carolina better but am happy they at least put e at end,more special." Apr. 13, 2021:
"Unlike other posts I have never liked my name. What possesses a woman to look at a cute baby and call it Carole, whether with or without the e! I was born in 1971 U.K. To a Scottish woman tho brought up in England. I have only ever met other Carol/e's who are at the very least 15 years older than me! So old fashioned. I do however agree I prefer it with an e, but in a twist to the tale, at age 14 a letter came through to me without the e, I said this to my mum who then confessed that actually, she happened to have my birth certificate in her bag for some reason and showed me I didn't after all have the e! Some confusion there as dad said he wanted the e and mum didn't, but she said it was the other way round! First choice of dad was actually Caroline, but mum was adamant against that - at least that is one thing we agree on. U.K. Stats for 2016 show Carol/e as th third least popular name! But it's mine now, what else would I be called? Gillian - good god, my middle name - they must have flipping hated me! Lol (they didn't!)" May. 24, 2017:
"I have always loved my name, Carole. I was named after Carole Lombard, which of course made me feel special. I too, felt when people left the "e" off of my name that it wasn't me." Apr. 27, 2016:
"I have to say, I am glad my parents added the e at the end of my name. It drives me crazy when people leave the e off. I think it looks a lot better with it. I always have to say carole with a e too !!" Dec. 12, 2014:
"I love having an e on the end of my name. Without the e it just isn't me. In this new age of e-mail and e-commerce etc, I have now
have to say "Carole with an 'e' on the end" because I once got a letter sent to Ecarol!!!" Nov. 10, 2012:
"Carole came to my school to lead our INSET taniring for a mixed group of teaching, support and care staff. (We are a residential school).Carole's taniring gave us a great deal of insight, not just into the behaviours and emotional state of our young people, but into our own. She helped us to see how we could have a greater impact on the young people in our care by having a greater understanding of ourselves.The relaxation at the end of the day was the best I've ever experienced. For the first time in ages I felt my shoulders soften and some of my tension subside.Thankyou Carole- a great day and real food for thought!Lis (Head teacher- residential special school)" Apr. 13, 2012:
"I'm glad my folks added the "e" -- it is a softer looking spelling than Carol without the "e." Also, it was the name of the wife of my all-time favorite movie star -- Clark Gable." Oct. 24, 2007:
"This is my name and I always have to say "It is Carole with an 'e' at the end to anyone taking down information. Thanks, Mom." Jan. 26, 2006:
