I like my name. Not many people have it which is probably the reason I like it. It's simple and has many spellings and variations.

3/20/2023 5:57:04 PM

I always thought I liked Caroline better, but I'm older now and have grown into my name. My parents told me that I was named after one of my dad's old girlfriends. They both liked the name that much!

2/26/2023 5:14:42 PM

I never until recently have ever had anyone ask me how to spell my name. They ask if its with a K. Anyway, I don't really like the name as It'seems dated and blah to me. My nickname growing up was Ceecee. I like Caroline more.

2/24/2023 8:16:48 PM

I'm actually thinking this name is missing something. It needs a Lynn. CaroLynn. But then again there's already a Carolyn for that hehe...

2/23/2023 9:56:40 PM

mai name is carol and nobody pronounces ma name wrong and love my name because im named after my favourite aunty so yurr

2/12/2023 9:23:42 AM

Even if the name Carol is quite old fashioned,It's not a hideous old lady's name like Bertha and Gertrude.

2/9/2023 6:27:12 AM

I'm Carole mum said the E was added because I'm not a Christmas carol born in may

2/8/2023 3:27:54 PM

i've always liked my name, and was pleased not to have a middle name as I?d mostly heard it joined with Ann which wouldn't suit me. I dislike it when people add an E on the end, and always think of it as ?Caroleee?! I like the plain simplicity of Carol. Hadn't really thought about it before, but of course i've never met a younger Carol. I was born in November 1964. It's been fun reading all the other comments here!

My name is Carol, middle name Ann. It's my grandmothe's middle name. I always liked being a Carol, It's unique enough that in school there weren't 7 in a class, like Jennifer in 5th grade, but not off the wall unique. I'm in my mid 30's and i've met very few othe's, but that's ok with me. I do enjoy Christmas time where "Carol" pops up a lot! Oh! And it ALWAYS irritated me when people would spell my name with an 'e' wouldn't mind the 'e' on the end of Ann though...

My name is Carol Sue and I was born in the late 1962s. I feel like i've outgrown my name, but It's so tied up in my identity that I tolerate it. I was a professional singer'so it is rather cool than it means joyful song.

1/5/2023 8:55:10 PM

My name is Carol Lynn, i was born in 1972. I don't know why my parents choose that name. In elementary school I remember 3 girls with the name Carolyn

12/13/2022 8:24:30 PM

i've always wished my name were Caroline instead of Carol. There's some historical precedent because my father's grandmother was a Caroline, but there were no Carols in the family. The thing I dislike most about my name is that it was SO popular in the 1940s and 1962s and has been less so since. So, people can always tell how old I am from my name.

11/17/2022 2:33:18 AM

I think It's a great name! Sometimes people add an e to the end of it-- Carole--but either way, I think It's a classy name. It's a common name for December babies, which I am, and a firend of mine also is.

11/15/2022 2:03:48 AM

My name is Carol Jean. My dad named me and he dated a Carol before my mom and loved the name! Good thing my mom was never jealous lol. Also Jean was his

11/11/2022 1:22:26 AM

My name is Carol (no middle name) and I always thought of it as old fashioned. I'm now 48 and I think it a pretty but simple name, I suppose I'm learning to love it!

10/28/2022 10:51:48 AM

My name is Carol-Ann and I love being double-barrelled. I was born on the 12th of December and the doctor suggested that my mother name me Carol. Not to be outdone, she added the Ann.

10/19/2022 7:02:04 AM

My name is Carole, with an e, the Dr. suggested I be named Carole because I was born on Christmas Day! My mom was so out of it from delivering she nodded her head, and the name got put down on my birth certificate. My mom wanted my name to be Corrine, so Corrine became my middle name instead of first. Thanks Doc!!

9/30/2022 8:23:18 AM

I like my name as it often gets remembered by a Christmas Carol. I have met lots of other women around my age named Carol. I have had no problems with my name or anyone trying to spell it. Which makes it easy.

9/24/2022 1:02:08 AM

I love my name but didn't for a long time because of Carol Burnett. Lol. because she was a comic and always contorted her face. I wanted to feel like my name was sexy but on tv back in the day, all the'secretaries were named Carol. If those associations weren't there, I would've loved my name then. I love it now though. It feels very light and simple and pretty. The rol at the end gives it a cool edge that makes it feel hip and vintage. I think It'should make a come-back. I love my name now and men really do love to say my name!

9/23/2022 8:02:22 PM

i've always liked my name, but I thought there were too many in school with me. I agree with the last comment, you can't shorten it. It's there.

9/5/2022 2:08:42 PM

My name is Carole (with the "e") and when I was a kid, I hated the extra "e" because all of the toothbrushes, combs, etc, were spelled "Carol" and that's just not my name! I wanted to be able to have a cute little license plate on my bike with my name like all of my other friends, but couldn't. But, now I like the "e" - to me, it looks unfinished without it. I hate how the people at Starbucks always think my name is Cheryl or Karen (I hate those names) so I often say "Cara" and some people call me Cara. My family calls me Ca (with the "a" having the'same sound as in Carole but a little longer). It's super cute!

My name is Carol Susan I was name after my dads cousins when I was young people would say to me were you born at Christmas I would say no but my dad would say no she was made at xmas as I was born Sept .the 7th child of ten

5/31/2022 9:22:48 AM

I love my name being Carol Ann. I was named for being born on Christmas Day. I named my daughter Carol too even'though she was born in July. It's a pretty name and I hope it makes a comeback.

5/26/2022 1:16:48 AM

My name was written as Carol on my birth certificate. However my father's German relatives objected to tbe spelling and insisted it be spelled the correct old Germanic way. So my parents applied for a corrected spelling birth certificate and it was changed to Karyl legally. I love the corrected spelling. --Karyl

4/19/2022 6:12:00 PM

I am Carol Jean. I like my name, but have never met anyone younger than me that has the name of Carol.

3/23/2022 7:24:00 AM

I'm 68 now, but when I was in elementary school there was a boy in my class named Carol, but I think his name had two L 's at the end. This was enough to turn me against my name'since a boy could also have it. I also always thought it was a plain boring name. In third grade I changed it to " Kitty". I liked the name Kathy at the time, but the proper nic name for Carol was " Carrie", I didn't like that either, so " Kitty" has stuck to me to this day. I still have Carol on my marriage certificate and driver's liscense though.

1/26/2022 2:35:06 PM

I would assume that my mother named me Carol because I was born around Christmas. It was also a popular name back in 1962s. I like what my name means, and I think I live up to that for the most part. I wish my name had an "e" at the end. The cool part is my middle name is Elizabeth, so sometimes I attach the "e" to the end of my name to represent my middle initial. I have met only a few people with my name over the years. Most have been around my age or older. It's ironic that my daughter-in-law's middle name is Carole, as is her mother's middle name, which means my grand-daughter is lucky enough to have my middle name, complete with the "e." And that makes me VERY happy.

1/21/2022 5:34:12 AM

my name, prefer to go by carol lin, It'sounds better

11/7/2021 9:19:12 PM

I love my name because for my age group It's uncommon, and therefore I always felt "special" for having such a pretty name. I'm musical as well, and the meaning fits me.

9/9/2021 6:09:18 PM

My name is just Carol with no middle name, though most of my friends call me Carrie. When hear some of the awful names babies are given'these days, I think how lucky I am to have such a classic, pretty name. I prefer it without an 'e' at the end as it looks prettier in print without. My only objection I have ever had to my name is that it was just too popular in the 1962s when I was born. Sadly it is now officially extinct here in the UK but classic names are gradually making a comeback.

My name is Carol and middle name Dee! I love my name....My Dad made up a song for each one of his 4 children! My was ? I'm in heaven when I see you smile, smile for me Carol Dee... I cry a little every time I remember him singing it to me! Love and miss you Dsddy and Momma!♥️

8/22/2021 3:38:06 AM

I love my name. Its. spelled Carol (pronounce Kah-rol) Its classic. Men love the name!

8/11/2021 5:01:48 AM

My mother's name is Carol. She loved her name, from what I remember! Only problem was she couldn't stand her middle name, "Ann!" Personally I beli've the name 'Carol' is super pretty!

7/28/2021 11:31:30 PM

I know of 2 baby girls named Carol as I type this... A really lovely and classic name. Will be popular again soon... Classic names do stand the test of time and are cyclical.
