    Calista. How do you pronounce it? Cal-list-uh or Cal-LEE-stuh. Or other. Please mention where you are from, because some names are pronounced differently in other countries. Any additional opinions on the name are welcome as well. Thank you in advance!

    I'm from the U.S. (great lakes area) and I pronounce it Ca-Lis-tah. I personally prefer the Calysta spelling, or Kallista, but I'm a bit odd...
