Spelling: Colin or Collin?

We want to name our boy Colin/Collin, but we're on the fence about how to spell it. I think Colin is more traditional, but we really don't want people to mispronounce it as "Colon" like how you say General Colin Powell's name. It should be pronounced to rhyme with "pollen." What do you all think, two L's or one??

I am a preschool teacher and I have several "Colin's," I don't believe anyone has ever called them "Colon" but I like the idea of Collin too!
