Callan is my sister's name, and she's never met another one. She loves her name, although people seem to think she's a boy when they read it, it really fits her and it works for a girly girl.
My name is Callan. I have never met another female with my name, but I have met a handful of males (usually they spell it differently- like Calin, or Callen). People always comment on how unique and neat my name is. I like having a different name, but it gets old having to spell/ sound it out for people all of the time. A lot of people want to pronounce it "Caylin." Now, when I meet people for the first time and they aren't sure how to pronounce my name, I always tell them "My name is Callan, like Calendar without the "dar" part." They always remember it after that. :)
