Calais is just gorgeous (if you don't mind having to spell it a million times). I would put it in the middle spot for that reason if I were to ever use it.

I like this on a boy, too.

Sounds so lovely but unfortunately is the model of car in Australia (Holden Calais) which is quite common. So I wouldn't use it for that reason.
