I am falling in love with the name Callie (like CALI-fornia or CAL- LEE). How would you spell it though? Thinking about pairing it with Marie.

Calleigh?
Caleigh?
Kaleigh?
Callie?
Kallie?
Cally?
Kally?

My first choice would be Callie, but I don't think it goes too well with Marie that way. With Marie, I think I'd have to spell it Caleigh or Calleigh.

Most definitely Callie. I love the name aswell but to me it seems a bit too nickname-ish. I think its great as a NN for something such as Calista.

I like it spelled Caleigh the best because it makes it look more like a whole name if that makes sense. The Callie spelling to me seems more like a nn

Callie, and I prefer it as a nickname for something: Calista, Calliope, Calanthe, Calanthia, Calla, Califia. I don't like the trendy -leigh spellings at all.

This is my top choice right now for my 2nd girl...I will spell it Callie. I really like Calleigh but DH doesn't like using "leigh" spellings. I tried so hard to find a "full" name that could have the nn Callie b/c I struggled thinking it was a nn. Finally I just realized that I really like the name by itself. I will pair it with Jean...Callie Jean
