Calliope

Is [name_f]Calliope[/name_f] a name-nerds kind of name, or do you think it is actually usable? I love the association with the [name_f]Muse[/name_f] of [name_m]Epic[/name_m] [name_f]Poetry[/name_f]. I like the nickname [name_f]Calli[/name_f]/[name_f]Callie[/name_f].

Perhaps if not as a first name, as a middle name?

I think that the nn makes it usable, and it would make a great mn!

I think it’s usable! I first heard it on the show “[name_u]Grey[/name_u]’s Anatomy,” and so it feels perfectly wearable to me. Uncommon, yet familiar. I like the nicknames [name_f]Callie[/name_f] and [name_f]Calla[/name_f]! If you’re still unsure, it would make a beautiful middle.

I think it is very usable. The recent spike in popularity suggests that others agree.

I think that, like [name_f]Penelope[/name_f], people once thought it strange and outlandish but the cute and classic nicknames drew appeal and then people began to see it as more normal as it became used more.

The [name_u]Grey[/name_u]’s Anatomy character - a strong, intelligent, fun and beautiful woman - made me fall in love with this name even more.
