Opinions on Callie/Cally. I like it as it's relatively normal, easier to pronounce and spell but I don't think it's too popular.

I like it we use it as a nickname short for Calista for dd2 so I may be a teeny bit biased smile

Love it. Spelt Callie only though, Cally doesn't look right to me

I don't think it needs a longer name, not that you asked but I saw a pp had mentioned Callista

AmethystRaven Sun 24-Sep-17 19:11:58

I really like it. Unusual but not 'out there'.

I like it a lot. I had a hamster called Callie when I was young, too smile

TheEdgeOfGlory266 Sun 24-Sep-17 19:13:32

Calista is a lovely name. DS is called Jack, would Calista go? DH loves Callie as it is but I'm going to be putting Calista to him!

I know someone with a Callie and for some reason I always forget her name. I also know someone with a Hallie and another with a Harley and I have to catch myself before I use their name to make sure I have the right one.

I know one. Short for Caroline, which I also like.

MikeUniformMike Sun 24-Sep-17 19:15:17

I prefer the spelling Cally. It could be short for Caroline/Carolina/Calista. All very pretty names.

stopbeingadramallama Sun 24-Sep-17 19:19:05

I like it

PotteringAlong Sun 24-Sep-17 19:21:14

I like it too. I'd make it short for Caroline.

TheEdgeOfGlory266 Sun 24-Sep-17 19:21:24

Thanks everyone. I just needed some opinions. I hate asking people in RL. They always have strong opinions and makes you not want to go for certain names. If rather not tell anyone the name until she's here and then they don't have much to say

I love it!

FrancisCrawford Sun 24-Sep-17 19:23:48

I love it.

Callie on Greys Anatomy was short for Calliope, which is lovely too

DramaAlpaca Sun 24-Sep-17 19:24:06

I like it very much, but would have Calista, Calliope or Caroline on the BC.

OvariesBeforeBrovaries Sun 24-Sep-17 19:27:24

DD is known as Callie. It's just rare enough to be unusual, without being too out-there and weird.

TheEdgeOfGlory266 Sun 24-Sep-17 19:29:03

@FrancisCrawford would it be sad if I admitted that I got it from Grey's?

loobybear Sun 24-Sep-17 19:29:48

I love it!

ChocolateCrunch Sun 24-Sep-17 19:32:19

Yes, love it! Probably as Callie, but like Cally too, and Calista and Calliope!

yantantethermetherpimp Sun 24-Sep-17 19:32:55

It's lovely!

Ktown Sun 24-Sep-17 19:35:00

I love calliope
Calls for short?

Ktown Sun 24-Sep-17 19:35:22

Call ee oh pee

DeliciouslyHella Sun 24-Sep-17 19:36:36

I like Callie. But only that spelling - Cally just reminds me of a certain part of north London.

purplemunkey Sun 24-Sep-17 19:37:09

I really like it. There's a character in CSI Miami named this, spelt Calleigh, so just a name in itself not a nickname.

MrsMotherHen Sun 24-Sep-17 19:37:45

I love that name i named my dog that name but spelt cali
