Gender: M Meaning of Calix: "chalice" Origin of Calix: Male variation of Calixta or Latin

Calix is starting to be very quietly used (46 boys in the U.S. were named Calix in 2012, up from 19 the year before), probably thanks indirectly to actress Calista Flockhart, who brought one female version of this attractive Greek name to prominence. A calyx is also a funnel or chalice-shaped part of a flower.
