What do people think for a girl? I love it but unsure if people will mistake it for Kelly, which I don't like.

Other possibles are Winter, River, Anna or Ottilie. Middle name to be Rose.

Thanks smile

Sorry not keen on Callie, but do like Anna. Rose is very nice but prefer it as a first name.

Dog's name.

Love Ottilie tho.

squoosh Tue 11-Nov-14 17:33:43

I like Callie but would assume it was short for something.

We hadx calleigh on our list - DH is a huge CSI Miami fan! We had a boy in the end but I still like the name (either spelling.

Agree it sounds like a nn ,how about Calandra Rose with Callie for nn . Winter and River both sound silly with Rose.

burgatroyd Tue 11-Nov-14 17:48:13

Its OK. I like it as a shortening for calista

I like it as a nickname but not as a full name. Prefer Calliope or Camilla nn Callie.

SmallBee Tue 11-Nov-14 18:06:41

Iove it, I would make it short for Calliope which is pretty

squoosh Tue 11-Nov-14 18:07:34

I think Callie can be short for Caroline too. Calliope reminds me of leg calipers.

Sophronia Tue 11-Nov-14 18:11:31

I like it as a nickname for Calanthe, Callista, Calliope, Caroline or Calla, but not as a full first name.

Anna Rose is lovely too.

I know an old man called Callie (spelt Caladh) - short for Caledonia, I kid not.
Certainly in parts of Scotland it's a shortening for Calum as well.

The Gaelic name means "A safe harbour" which I think is lovely. Just it's automatically a boy's name for me!

It's nice but makes me think of the cartoon Sheriff Callie which seems to be the programme of choice for 4 year olds at the moment!

I really like it.
I love Anna though.

verelab Tue 11-Nov-14 20:06:27

I like Callie. I know one who is a Caroline - also a nice name. Calista is another lovely long "version".

Sorry, but dislike Anna - v boring!

Kookydooda Tue 11-Nov-14 20:12:31

As in sheriff callie???!!!

BirdhouseInYourSoul Tue 11-Nov-14 20:12:43

I know a Kallie (prefer the C spelling tbh) and her mother often gets asked what it's short for.

Sophronia Tue 11-Nov-14 20:14:09

I know a Kally short for Katherine.

Lunastarfish Wed 12-Nov-14 18:21:41

I think it's pretty but I'd probably have Calantha and Callie as a nn. She'll be the only Callie around

LadySansa Wed 12-Nov-14 19:10:27

I like it. Not sure what I'd go for as a long version, but I don't think it really needs it. Love Anna and Ottilie too.

River Rose and Winter Rose sound a bit odd, though the names are all lovely it's just too nature-y.

burgatroyd Wed 12-Nov-14 19:17:19

How about Callianna? Or Callianne?

fishfingerSarnies Wed 12-Nov-14 21:10:43

I like it, would use caroline as a full name I think.

BonnieWeeJeannieMcCall Wed 12-Nov-14 21:20:41

I knew a lovely Callie, but I assumed it was short for something.

TheWhispersOfTheGods Wed 12-Nov-14 21:21:17

I really don't like it, it sounds chavvy to me, and it's not a strong name for an adult imo. All the longer forms (other than Caroline) sound contrived. It would get confused for Kelly on the phone too.

It is very very different from your other options, which i love. Ottilie is great, i like River and Winter a lot, although less with Rose as a mn, and Anna is always a nice choice.
