I prefer this spelling way more then Cali. Callie is a nice nickname for Calliope or Calpurnia.

Really pretty name but I prefer it spelt Calleigh instead.

Callie is a much better spelling than Cali. Cali looks incomplete and not right at all. Callie all the way!

My name is Callie and I personally love that it's not overly popular. In my primary school I was the only Callie and in high school there is only one other Callie spelled differently!

It's cute, but maybe a bit too cute for a full name. I'd prefer this as a nickname for something like Calliope.

Sheriff Callie's Wild West, the show on Disney jr. Will make this name a little more popular. I like the name. It'd be great to hear it and I think it'd grow up well.

I think Callie is such a pretty name! It's very feminine, and yet not prissy or overbearing. It's common enough to be known, but uncommon enough that there aren't multiple Callie's in every class. Gorgeous!

My father wanted to name me Calpurnia, and call me Callie. He's a literature professor, so my siblings and I all have literary-inspired names. I don't hate it, but I like what they ended up choosing better: Sophie, after Sophocles.
