Comments for the name Calla


Comments for CALLA:

"Calla" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

This name sounds so romantic to me, makes me think of Calla lillies (My favorite). Calla seems like someone so beautiful you would be afraid to touch her.

I love Calla. Simple, sweet, & not overly popular. My only concern would be is that for some, it's a bit hard to say.

I think it's a great name but it can be better with other names such as Rachel-Calla, Marie-Calla, Calla-Alice, Calla-Narina plus a whole lot more, just be creative.

My full name is Calista, and I go by Calla. I adore it. :D

I watched "Tarzan" the other day and his mother's name was Kala. I like how it sounded so I decided to invent "Calah". I like the name Cayla with a "C" and I just like "Calah" -- they way it is spelled and sounds better! I absolutely adore it. And then I clicked on this name and the Greek meaning is "kallos" (I think) meaning beauty, and I like it even MORE now!

Just seems like a variant of Carla to me, as it sounds exactly the same, and so loses its glamour somewhat.

Calla and Carla are not pronounced the same at all.

Calla is CAL-lah (not CAH-lah) and Carla is CAR-lah.

Actually, the Calla Lily is neither a true lily, nor a calla. The flower comes from the Zantedeschia genus in the Araceae family.

Calla is a great name. It's short and simple, but not nickname-y, and pretty, but not too girly. It sounds good on girls and women alike.

Oh my. One of the most beautiful names I've ever heard. Almost too perfect for me to imagine on a person (I've never met anyone named this).

Man, at first I didn't even know this name existed. I was just sitting in the middle of geometry one day last year, and the name Calla Brady, popped up. So I thought when I looked it up on here maybe it was a cognate of Callie, and I was excited to find that it really did exist. Love the flowery meaning, too.

Sounds like "callous".
-- GunsnRoses8794  11/5/2008
I vaguely remember reading that calla lilies are supposed to symbolise female genitalia. Yet another reason not to use this unattractive name.

In Spanish, calla (pronounced KEYE-ah) means "street".
-- Athena Nike  9/1/2009
Calla is one of the most feminine and beautiful names for a girl. It's amazingly delicate and flowery.
-- XxproudrulerxX  11/28/2009
Pronounced KAH-lah.
-- MaggieSimpson  12/26/2009
Lithe, aesthetic, yet modern-sounding.

I KNOW A CALLA! She's awesome, but when people first say her name, they say Kayla instead. Calla is such a unique and beautiful name.
-- Anonymous User  4/23/2010
This name is pretty and quite interesting. It would make a great alternative to Kayla.
-- bananarama  8/20/2010
Too bad this sounds like the word 'callous.'

I can't believe people actually use Calla as a real name. As a nickname, sure, it's pretty, but as a legal name - ew.

This name makes me think of a girl in 6th grade. She is goth and wears WAY too much makeup. Also reminds me of a cowboy, though I don't know why...
-- writer371  3/24/2011
I prefer the variation Cala, and I think an extremely beautiful combination is Cala Rose.
-- Anonymous User  5/4/2011
I find the name very elegant, maybe a bit on the soft side but with a vibe similar to Sarah, Hanna, Ella, Lilah. It's very underused.

Beautiful flower, but yet another name "roont" for me by Stephen King.
-- XICooper  6/25/2012
The name Calla was given to 120 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I think it's very pretty when pronounced CAL-a, and much more mature sounding and unique than Callie.
