Any thoughts? I am trying to come up with shortlists.
Is it too common/popular? Do you immediately think of Callum Best when you hear it?
You can be brutally honest i need the good and the bad.

I like the name a lot. I have only good connotations to it. Makes me think of a strapping, handsome Northern or Scottish man, not a naughty little boy smile It was in our top 10 boys names, and would likely have used it if we'd ended up with twins boys instead of one of each. I don't think the spelling matters too much as I've come across fairly equal amounts of both.

My DS1 and 3 are called Connor and Callum! They are anything but naughty and are both performing very well, and my eldest is setting his sights on Oxbridge. DS2 has a name most people on MN seem to love confused

I love Callum! I've met more Calums though. It sounds quite peaceful and soft, in my mind.

I think its ok my friend has had a baby Callan recently I love that its so weird that the 'n' at the end would make such a difference

Actually, after a recent thread, DS2's name is supposed to be chavvy too confused so taking advice from me might be a bad idea...grin

No soon (althoigh I quite like Brandon).

ha ha - it was just someone on another thread said it was chavvy so I wondered.

I have one so am biased but I love it. I only heard that it is meant to be chavvy after but don't think that my Callum is (of course!). He's also not overly naughty either and defo isn't at school! I also only know one other throughout whole of nursery time and school so far.

I think if you like a name then just use it, don't worry about if it might be used a lot or what others might think of it.
