Which of the three do you like the best? Does Callen/Callin look too girly for a boy? I think it sounds boyish, but don't want ppl to mispronounce Callen/Callin somehow for kay-lin vs. kal-in, make sense? Wdyt of Callum?

I love Callen and it's in my top 10. Despite being similar to female names, I find it masculine. I love the nn Cal. I like Callum too

I prefer Callum.

This was actually the only name Dh suggested during this pregnancy; but unfortunately, I don't like it enough to use for our own child.

Callen is great for a girl IMO - i think the double L and the -en makes it hard to get mispronounced CAY-LYNNE

Callum is great for a boy

I don't like Callum at all. It sounds like some sort of medication!
