Fiercesome in its demure stature, Collin is a Scottish masculine name perfect for a bold and mischievous soul. On paper, Collin appears to be a most reserved title, yet its roots in the Scottish Gaelic caileán, reveal it as a "puppy," "young hound," or "whelp." Collin can also be a variant of the French Colin, which in turn comes from the Greek Nicholas and means "victory of the people." Far from timid, Collin captures a fast-growing strength open to guidance but born with sharp predatory instinct.
