Do you like it?

And can you think of anything it could be short for?

poppydaisy Tue 27-Sep-11 14:06:08


I quite like it, yes.

DharmaBumpkin Tue 27-Sep-11 14:08:58

I do like it smile It could be short for Callista, Calindra or, ermmmm...

Could be Calleigh as a full name or is that a bit.. y'know...

PandaNot Tue 27-Sep-11 14:20:52

I love Callie, it didn't 'go' with our surname though so we didn't use it.

DharmaBumpkin Tue 27-Sep-11 14:23:52

I have just thought that it could be a nn for Caroline if you wanted a less unusual first name!

Callie on its own is lovely too, though

My aunt's dog is called Callie...

GwendolineMaryLacey Tue 27-Sep-11 15:58:32

NN for Caroline. lovely.

Yes, it's a bit, y'know Armagaddon grin

Nice as nickname for Calantha, Calista, Calandra. Not keen on Caroline, it's a bit old-hat sloaney.

lickthemarmiteknife Tue 27-Sep-11 16:45:54

love Calista (with emphasis on 1st syllable - to rhyme with Allister)

but not Ca-LIS-ta (as in flockhart)

Callie is nice shortening

Love it!!! Wanted it for DD but too similar to my RL name

Lovely name, it's the one I wanted had I had a girl.

mayanna123 Tue 27-Sep-11 17:26:02

Calista or Calliope. I like it.

dearheart Tue 27-Sep-11 17:30:48

Love it as a nn for Caroline - which is a v beautiful name imo. I also like Calista, but that is quite a name so she'd better have the personality to carry it off.

I've got a cousin called Callie. Not a nickname or anything, just Callie.

sparkle12mar08 Tue 27-Sep-11 18:18:57

It's lovely but in speech people will always assume it's Kellie, which is rather less lovely, shall we say.

mathanxiety Tue 27-Sep-11 18:33:29

I think it would get mixed up with Kelly.

I think it's a bit insipid on its own, but nice as a nn for Calista.

I like it, short for Calliope.

CarterGirl Thu 29-Sep-11 16:17:58

I've literally just been mulling over this name myself!

I really like it, but mathanxiety makes a good point about people mistaking it for Kelly in speech.
