I think that Kate's explanation makes sense. If it is known that Calma was used as a nn for Caroline Mathilde in that family it was most likely used for that reason.

The Latin origine idea could have been an "educated guess" by name book authors. I did google Calmus together with other terms and could not find any evidence of it being used in Ancient times.
