Colossal Boy is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Gim Allon comes from a people of giant stature on Earth who are already born adults. Therefore, the name "Colossal Boy", according to him, is incorrect, since he has to shrink to be in normal human proportion, and therefore his name should be something like Microbe Lad or Shrinky Dinker, at his suggestion.
