Waiting for Roland (332.6 days ago) Carol was originally a boy`s name. I would say do the K spelling you mentioned later. I was thinking, and in my area Carol is an older ladies` name. That can be bad, but that also means that they won`t be in school with him. He might be the only Karol/Carol the other kids know. That would prevent a bias of the name. I do.prefer Joel, though.
ash.a (333.5 days ago) I think good names are easy to picture a kid with the name, as well as a grown man. What kind of image does the name Carol have you seeing in your head?? If you are happy with the image, then go for it. It is seems out of place, maybe rethink the name.
BabySchofield (333.8 days ago) I like Joel for a boy, but not Carol so much, I`ve never known Carol to be a boys name, in fact, it`s my aunt`s name! lol But if you like it then go for it, it seems there are others who have known guys to be named Carol so it`s not odd. I don`t know anything about the Pope either so I`m out of the loop lol
