COLLIN, COLLINS, COLLIS.  Colin is one of the diminutives of Nicholas, and Collins may be its genitive, and Collis a corruption thereof.  There are, however, other assigned etymons, as Fr. colline, a hill, and Gael. cuilein, a term of endearment.  But Colline is also an ancient baptismal name, which existed before the compilation of Domesday.  According to B.L.G. the Collinses of Walford existed, eo nomine, in the time of the Conqueror, in cos. Hereford and Salop. (Patronymica Britannica, Lower, 1860)
