I like the name Callum, however, I prefer Calum. I think this is because of Calum Hood from 5 Seconds of Summer. I just love his name. I’m thinking about using it someday for my little boy.

I try not to be judgmental, but I really hope that 4000% increase in people searching for Kyd was because they couldn’t believe someone used it on their child.

Alden and Callum are my favourites on this list.
