  • "My name is Callum and I enjoy my name. It is a nice name that a lot of my friends are fond of. However the nicknames can be a bit intense..." Jun. 21, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my son Callum Bradley. Once people realize how to pronounce it, it gets a lot of positive feedback. Most people will say cay-lum at first and it does get exhausting repeating it, but we nicknamed him Cal and we love it. If we ever have another boy, we plan on naming him Niall. I think that sounds like a good pair." Apr. 10, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my son who was born in 2013 Callum as his middle name, we are US citizens but I fell in love with the name after the singer Calum Scott made his debut on a singing audition" Jan. 13, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "A good, strong, respectable name; with Scottish Gaelic roots. People in the United States may not be familiar with the sound, however, and automatically hear "Collin" or similar, without a second thought. They may also hesitate to attempt to pronounce the written form and/or end up pronouncing "Cay-Lehn, Call-Uhm", etc.", rather than "Cal-Uhm" (as in "Cal" from "California"). The correct pronunciation is much more widely known within Europe and the UK, particularly within regions in or near England, Scotland, and Ireland." May. 14, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love this name and plan on giving this name to one of my sons in the future!!! Love the nickname Cal too :)" Jan. 18, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Brother is named Callum James. I think is a brilliant name. It's uncommon, I've only ever met two others. I think is a smart choice." Apr. 11, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "Generally It's alright. My parents like it - well of course, they chose it. But me personally I'd prefer something that starts with cal. I absoloutely love the name Caleb and make people call me that. But it has the coolest meaning. Callum means Dove. And of course a dove symbolises peace. :)" Nov. 26, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love the name Callum--it is a strong, masculine name--I also like that it's an old, traditonal-sounding name. Thumbs way up!" Nov. 18, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My brother is Callum, an he AINT no dove. I gives it a negetive star out a 100." Jan. 18, 2018: Report as inappropriate
