    I am totally digging it today. What are your thoughts? How’s it sound in a sibset with Allie, Lucy and Emma?

    The only potential problem I can possibly see is that every now and then we refer to Allie as Al (like if referring to her quickly. ie: “Al, got get your backpack.”) We could potentially have Al and Cal… :/

    I like it! Not sure that it is a perfect match for your girls, but it doesn’t seem glaringly wrong either. I guess it depends on how much you want the styles to match. To me that is not so much a big deal.

    My roommate and I were discussing it a few days ago. I kind of like it, I think it’s cool and unusual, plus I once met a really attractive guy named Callum. My roommate hates it because it looks and sounds like Gollum (from Lord of the Rings), and since she mentioned that, I’ve been rather hesitant about it. “Gollum” was sort of a coughing noise the creature made, and now I think Callum kind of sounds like you’re coughing something up too…

    I’ve never liked it; sorry. It always makes me think of Gollum.

    I understand your hesitation, but it’s still a great name!

    I think I’m gonna scratch it. Too many hesitations/issues.

    Callum is fabulous. It’s got that WOW factor without being too “out there”. I can see the Al/Cal dilemma for sure, but it’s such a nice name :)

    Oh, that’s a shame! I do love Benjamin. (DH does too but we already had a nephew by that name or we quite possibly would have used it!)

    I love love love Benjamin – there are several on H’s side of the family so that is the only reason we never really considered it.
    I am not a huge fan of Callum
