I love the sound of it. It really has a full, lilting sound that rolls off the tongue. And Callie is an adorable nickname!

I really like it, but there would be a lot of correcting other people's pronunciation.

I really like this name...in theory. However, I can't see myself ever using it IRL, and I know I wouldn't get DH's approval. It is very pretty though, and I've never heard it on a person.

I like it, it was one of the drs on Grey's Anatomy with the nn Callie. But I have a Penelope so it would be to sing-song for me to use.
