    Cal?

    What do you think of Cal, and what do you think is the best way to get to it?

    Calvin is lovely, but I have a bit of an aversion to it for personal reasons. Calum / Callum (which spelling)? Callahan? Calhoun? Callaway / Calloway? Calder? Something else entirely?

    I've been liking Callahan myself lately. I also really like Callum, spelled with two L's.

    I love the nn Cal! I think if I wanted to use the nn, I'd probably opt for Calvin, but I do like Callum and Callan a lot, as well.

    I also have tossed around the idea of Caleb, nn Cal, just because I don't like Cale and my poor sons would be left out because my daughters would likely get nns (Isabelle nn Belle, Arianne nn Ari, Olivia nn Liv, etc.) and I tend to like boys' names without nicknames... but it is a bit farfetched.

    Good luck!

    I think Calvin is lovely and I do prefer it to Callum, just because Callum is a well used boys name in the UK and somewhat dated. Although I do know the most gorgeous 4 year old named Callum, and he goes by Cal a lot of the time.

    I think Caleb nn Cal would be nice too, or Callan.

    I can't think of anything else, sorry.
