This name sounds too foreign for the modern American girl to have.

I'd pronounce it Cal-an-tha.

I know it's incorrect, but I always tend to pronounce the -the (thee) in Greek name as -thay. So that means I would pronounce this Kal-an-thay.

This could work for a modern American girl with the nickname Callie. A good combo is Calanthe Rebeca.

Cal is a common abbreviation for California. Some creative people could interpret Calanthe as Cal- with -anthe, meaning "California Flower." Thus, a child could be named this in honor of California. Any which way this name is beautiful.

Beautiful name! It's so unique! Not over-used! Definitely one of my favourites!

I love how it is a name of a flower but does not sound all prissy and too delicate. It would take someone who is either a flower lover or studies root words to know it even is a flower. Definitely a new favorite!

My favorite flower name. Beautiful, soft, and graceful yet strong.
