What do you think?


It popped into my head and I kind of like it, but it's not my usual style I like. I like traditional names, spelled traditionally, not trendy or super popular, not made-up sounding. I kind of like Callan since it's similar to my maiden name. DD's name is Juliet.

I actually like it. I've said it out loud a few times and it's not bad at all.

I knew a Calan in HS who was female. She is the only Callan ive ever met but recently ive heard it mentioned for boys so im honestly not sure if its used more for boys or girls.

I'll keep thinking about it then. Still not sure. Luckily I have plenty of time Boys names just don't grab me like girls names do.

Not a fan at all. It is a "variation of Caelin". Juliet is a beautiful choice and to me Callan doesn't have the strength, substance or class of Juliet.
I do like the name Callum, which is similar, and means 'dove'.

I like it. I don't think I would use it personally, but it's a nice name.
