    Refreshing choice of a facebook friend

    My facebook friend that I knew from a long while back just posted her baby's name - Calliope Jean nn Callie! I've heard Callie but I've only ever heard name-nerds talk about the name Calliope (and only hypothetically), so it was refreshing to see. I'm pretty sure Jean is after a family member of hers. What do you guys think? (And as a side note, what's your favorite full name for Callie? I like Calista and Calypso the best but Calliope and Caroline are good too!)
    Felicity ~ Calista ~ Claudia ~ Beatrice "Betty" ~ Carlotta ~ Millie ~ Cora ~ Audrey ~ Violet

    Calvin ~ Jude ~ Miles ~ Oliver ~ Roscoe ~ Benjamin ~ Leo ~ Adrian ~ Isaac ~ Colin

    Calliope is lovely and I agree that it's a refreshing choice. It's a name my husband especially likes. I think Calliope has been boosted by the character of Calliope Iphegenia "Callie" Torres (who could also go by Callie Jean ) on "Grey's Anatomy", though.

    I always love that name.. it's on my personal list. And to answer your question, I'm torn. I think I love all Callie longer version. Calliope and Callista are both I consider for future daughter, but I love Calypso too.
