This uncommon girl name
I know I am going to get hit hard with a lot of critism through the berries about this name we are looking to use. I know this is a unisex name mostly for boys but my husband and I fell in love with it. Though we haven't fully decided on the name, we are. Highly considering it.
The name is callaway, her nickname will be calla or Callie.
Any suggestions for middle names
Other names we are considering
I don't think boys are automatically entitled to all surnames. They should be open to all comers--especially those names that aren't used much. I like your originality!
The first time I ever heard Callaway I thought.. what a lovely name for a girl. However, it is a very popular brand of golf clubs. Having said that I don't think you will meet with that many critical comments since the sound is so lyrical. Overall I think it's a nice choice. How about...
Callaway Shea is one of our options
I prefer Carys or Isla, but that's just my personal style. I have never met a Callaway, so I don't feel it's particularly masculine or feminine. There are plenty of last name names that are used for girls and not boys, like Kennedy, McKenna, etc. Maybe Callaway will become one of them? I don't know why, but Callaway Ann was the first suggestion to pop into my head. I know Ann is considered boring and a filler, but I like it. Callaway needs a more simple, common, feminine middle to balance it, I think.
I like Callaway Shea the best :)
I actually love it! Very melodic and beautiful and it has intuitive, recognizable girls nicknames. Great choice!
