Kolby is a baby boy name of German origin. A variant of the Old German names Kolbe and Kolb, this baby name translates to “mace” or “cudgel.” Though these tall, ball-pointed weapons were commonly used in the medieval era for close combat, these sharp spears were mainly used by members of the royal family, like princes, dukes, and even court jesters. Since then, Kolby carries strong connotations, symbolizing nobility, power, and change. With a name like Kolby, baby can be the perfect kind of wrecking ball.
