Me and my DP both like the name but we've had some odd-ish reactions to it. I didn't (and still don't) think it's odd or rare but some people have commented how its 'unusual' or 'unique' the usual things you say when you don't like a name but don't want to be mean

Honest reactions please? smile

I like it - was on a friends shortlist along with Gabriel, Joel, Isiah, Zacharius, Jamieson and Tate.

I like it a lot - my slightly random literary association with it is Caleb Garth in Middlemarch...

Caleb is one of my favourite people in the bible. He was brave and faithful and trusted Gods promises. The story of jacob has spies and battles and trumpets in it, hes a very cool person to be named after. I would vote yay for caleb

Correction story of caleb. Not jacob. Which I was also thinking is a great name. Or joshua
