This is an elaborate variant of the name Cali. Callie’s origins lie in Greece mythology where the nymph Callisto inspired the word “kallista”, meaning “fairest”. Today the name Callista isn’t widely used, whereas Callie has been doing well since the 1900s. You could experiment with a range of variants too: Cally, Kallee and Kaleigh are just a few to try on for size!
