    It makes me think of Sara Ramirez’s character in Grey’s, but that’s not a bad thing ๐Ÿ™‚ And Callie is a cute nickname.

    It’s of Greek origin meaning “beautifully voiced”. It’s also a musical instrument. Take into account that many people don’t know how to pronounce it. It has the potential to be butchered, and your child would be none too pleased. Imagine a lifetime of people calling you KAL-ee-OH-pee, at best. While it’s pretty when you’re familiar with the name, I think you’d be better off with something else.

    It’s one of the muses.  And that is Callie’s first name.

    Love Callie but Calliope sounds like you’re making fun of someone’s name. And what if they got nicknamed “opie” ohh no! No bueno!

    I voted its not horrible. Idk, I’m into more traditional names. Plus, it reminds me of Callie on Greys. I do like Callie as a nickname though…

    I’m not a fan – sounds sort of like cassiopeia, sort of like alley-oop.. I guess I just don’t know what to make of it! I just picture your daughter having to answer a lot of questions along the lines of “sorry, what did you say your name was??”
