The name Caliban is a boy's name of Romanian origin meaning "black". Caliban and is often added to lists like Literary Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "CAF w/ literary names!".
From the experts:
In Shakespeare's The Tempest, Caliban is the name of the deformed son of a witch: not the greatest literary reference for a child. But Caliban does have an appealing exotic-yet-accessible feel and a rhythmic sound. As long as nobody knows its origin, it might make a great name for a boy or even a girl.
