Personal experiences with the name Calpurnia

We named our daughter Calpurnia, but we call her Callie most of the time. Almost everyone has never heard of it, but most people comment that they really like that it's different without sounding like a modern "made-up" name. I read the book The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate a couple of years before being pregnant and really liked both the book and the name, so that's where it came from.
