    I think Calla could be seen as a nod to a Carolyn or Caroline. I think Calla is beautiful.

    I didn't mind Calla until I started learning Spanish... now, even though I KNOW how to say it in English, all I can hear is my Basque high schoolers telling each other to "shut up".
    It's not always that harsh, though, haha, it can just be being quiet.

    I don't think Calla is too "out there" but if you're worried about it, I love the mentioned of Caroline. Caroline nn Calla. I like that a lot!

    I think Calla is lovely and not too 'out-there' at all. It may not be common but it's made of familiar sounds which means that it is unusual without standing out as being too weird.

    I think Calla is very pretty and feminine! I do like Caroline better, but Calla is a pretty choice!
