Calloway Origin and Meaning

The name Calloway is a girl's name 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. For a girl, this could be an unconventional route to the cool nickname Callie.

Instagram starlet Caroline Calloway adds some drama to the name's image.
