    How do you pronounce...

    Callen?

    Apparently it's a character in NCIS; we don't have cable, but I'm sure there are some of you who watch that show.

    I want to say Call-en like Call me maybe. But it could be Cal-en like Cal-vin and Hobbes.

    Yes, there is a Callan (this spelling, I think) in NCIS: Los Angeles. He's quite awesome, haha. It's CAL-in, like Calvin without the "V". "A" as in apple.
