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.

Calypso is also a type of music from the West Indies.

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.

I like it as a name. It's nice, and Calla is a nice short form. It sounds sort of exotic but not too weird, and classic but not pretentious.
