Along the east coast of Ireland there is a cluster of names anglicised as Collin/Collon from Irish collann, meaning 'a height'. See also Collin Top (Co. Antrim) and Collon Hill (Co. Wicklow). They may ultimately show the same root as Lat. collis, Fr. colline and Eng. hill.
Big Collin is the 951st highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/898/
