Subject: Callina?
Author: Soul   (guest,

In one of my favourite novels, Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz, there's a character who is called Lygia, 'though her given name is Callina. I was wondering what's the meaning and origin of the name Callina. It's said in the book that the girl got the name Lygia because she was originally a lygian (?)(I'm not sure what they are called in Wnglish), but, despite a persistent research, I don't know anything about a people called the lygians so I can't say anything about Callina's ethnic backround. Can anyone help me? :)
