All I know about the name Calico is that it is mine! haha! I have not met any other Calicos yet, but I would love to! :)Let me know if you know anyone with my name!

My daughter's name is Calico, named after feeling her kick during an Enter the Haggis concert. We had some initial scepticism about naming her something so far out of the Top Ten, but it absolutely fits her–she's a very colourful child. We've received a lot of positive feedback about her name and have not had any issues with misspelling or mispronunciation. We haven't met any other Calicos either.
