Calloway Origin and Meaning

The name Calloway is a boy's name of Latin origin meaning "pebbly place".

Calloway is one of those irresistibly jaunty, animated three-syllable surnames, like Sullivan and Finnegan — but this one has the added attraction of jazzy ties to the immortal "Dean of American Jive," Cab Calloway.

There was a 1951 comedy spoof called "Calloway Went Thataway."
