I know a Cameo, she's very sweet and has a calming presence.

I used to be obsessed with this name!!! Still like it a lot but not a top favorite anymore, probably because of the film term.

I wouldn't name a person this, but for a character I think it works really well.

I would like this if it didn't mean "brief appearance in a movie". I like Calypso though.

Would work for a girl, but I think of it more as a boy name, along the same lines of Romeo and Cameron.
