National Colin Day 2024: National Colin Day is celebrated on January 29. It is not to be confused with Colin Day, a non-executive board member of the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs in the United Kingdom. National Colin Day honors the name Colin and its bearers. In English, Colin is a given name that is assigned to men. Its two distinct origins are as follows: it is a diminutive form of the Old French short form of the name Nicolas, “Colle,” and it is an Old French form of the name Nicolas. Its second derivation is the current Irish spelling of Coileáin, which meaning “whelp, cub,” and an anglicized version of Cuilen, Cailean.

The National Colin Day History

The provided surname can be used to get the name Colin. It might have unrelated French ancestry. The Irish patronymic Coileáin is the source of the surname Cullen, which is an anglicization of the unrelated patronymic Cuilinn. For the majority of the 20th century, Colin was listed among the “Top 100 most popular male names” in England and Wales; but, towards the close of the century, its popularity began to decline. From 96th place in 1904 to 82nd place in 1914 and 15th place in 1944, it progressed steadily. It finally dropped to 67th place in 1984 after dropping to 22nd place in 1954. Colin was the 319th most prevalent name in England and Wales at the end of 1996.
