Callum is here!

[name_f]Nell[/name_f]’s little brother arrived earlier this month. We went into delivery with three names - [name_m]Callum[/name_m], [name_m]Ross[/name_m], and [name_u]Reed[/name_u]. I thought the week before that certainly we’d likely pick [name_u]Reed[/name_u]. As soon as we both saw his face we knew he looked like [name_m]Callum[/name_m]. We ended up picking two middle names since he’s our last and we couldn’t decide which family name to use. [name_m]Callum[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] and then my maiden name which I’ll leave out. We loved that the meaning of [name_m]Callum[/name_m] is dove. He’s our symbol of peace during these crazy times in the world. Big sister [name_f]Nell[/name_f] adores him already.

I love the name [name_m]Callum[/name_m]! Congratulations!

Congratulations! Such a lovely classic name. :slight_smile:

Congrats! We seem to have the same taste in names, both [name_f]Nell[/name_f] and Re(i)d were on my names list. We named our boy [name_m]Callum[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u]. I just love it!

[name_m]Callum[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] X is such a sweet and strong name, congratulations. And can I just say that I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] your choice of [name_f]Nell[/name_f] for your daughter; it’s one of my all-time favourites.

Wow we certainly do! I prefer the [name_u]Reid[/name_u] spelling but it clashed with our surname. I love it as well!

Thank you! Picking [name_f]Nell[/name_f]’s name was a little easier for us. We are often asked if [name_f]Nell[/name_f] is short for a longer name but she’s just [name_f]Nell[/name_f]. We love the sweetness and simplicity.

Having a son named [name_m]Callum[/name_m] is like my ultimate dream. It’s strong & sweet. I am amazed (but a little glad) that it isn’t way more popular. Congratulations! :heart:

Congratulations!! I’m sorry this is late, but I just wanted to tell you how happy I am for your family and how much I love your name choice. A fn and a mn with two l’s is a dream! And then [name_f]Nell[/name_f], too… Such an amazing sibset. I hope you, your family, and your new little treasure are doing well in these crazy times and I wish you all the best.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! We both happen to have one “L” in our names so it’s fun to think together we made two kids each with two “L’s” in their first names. We didn’t plan it that way but it’s fun to find the pattern now.
