I love this name. It's really original. It sounds really exotic.

Calypso is my middle name. If I had to be called something else, I would be called Calypso, as my name is Annabel. Calypso also means Sea Nymph.

I think Calypso sounds very exotic. It's really nice!

I think it sounds like a dance. But it would be a good name for a parrot or another exotic creature.

Darn companies!

This name is a character from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. This name suits her because she adores and knows a lot about the ocean.

If you are exact she doesn't know a lot about the ocean in the Pirates of the Caribbean but she is the ocean or part of it as she is so called sea goddess.

Due to it ending with an o I thought this was a boy's name when I first saw it and I liked it then, but after finding out it is a female name I HATE it.

Calypso is my middle name and I love it! It is very unique [I have never met anyone else called this] and I am proud of that. I think it sounds beautiful and exotic. I got teased about it a bit as a child [Calippo ice lollies and all that] but I still liked it. I personally don't think it would work as a boy's name at all.

A calypso is a type of jump/turn in dancing. It's a very beautiful and graceful leap, and so the name seems rather lovely.

This is my middle name and I HATE it. I think it sounds like a boys' name, and on top of that the syllables just fall all over each other in an messy way. It even has a terrible meaning--who wants their namesake to be a jealous, selfish woman who traps a man on her island for seven years because she can't accept that he loves another woman. I would have thought twice about this one.

I think Calypso is unique and I am proud that it is rare. I like the way it sounds like ways clashing over each other when you say the name out loud. It also has a mysterious sound to it.

There is a song called "Calypso" about the sea nymph from mythology sung by Suzanne Vega.

This is also a name in the Romani (Gypsy) language.

Calypso was the daughter of Atlas, protector of peace on an island.

A stunning name. Exotic, but not weird and frou-frou.

In my family, it's a tradition to name the female characters after Greek Mythology. My mom, Athena, named me Calypso. At first I hated it- I got teased relentlessly (especially when they found out what Calypso did in the myths), so I gave myself the nickname "Callie". I later began to like the name- but I still go by Callie.
