Male variation of Calixta or Latin

Calix Origin and Meaning

The name Calix is a boy's name of Greek, Latin origin meaning "chalice".
Calix derives from the Latin word for chalice, calyx, which in turn came from the Ancient Greek word kálux, meaning “husk” or “pod.” It is also considered a diminutive of Calixtus, a variation of the Late Roman name Callistus meaning “most beautiful.” Calyx can also be spelled Calyx, as in the funnel or chalice-shaped part of a flower.

Calix is starting to be very quietly used (54 boys in the U.S. were named Calix in 2018), probably thanks indirectly to actress Calista Flockhart, who brought one female version of this attractive Greek name to prominence.
