“Colin” – Meaning: ‘Ruler of the people’ Just received a magnet thingy from my aunt who bought it in USA: What’s in a name? “Colin” – Meaning: ‘Ruler of the people’ He hides his true feelings on occasion. He will tell the truth even when it hurts. When he is not talking, he’s laughing. Some of Colin’s friends are just like him. A mentor will guide him down his career path. With support of many friends he will go far.
