Calypso is a greek mythological name. It has naturally a great ring to it because it sounds exotic. Quite sophisticated name with a cute sound as well. Mythology fans will really like this name and since it is very unpopular, a Calypso would stand out in school, work or in life for her great name!
Possible middle names: -Calypso Silvia: both exotic and elegant
-Calypso Iphigeneia: two ancient greek names together make a great combination! Both sound sophisticated and sexy!
- Calypso Acacia: those two names sound great together and I see those names as a beautiful, intelligent and sexy woman.

I knew a young woman called Calypso. She's very feminine, elegant, polished and posh. I've always associated those characteristics with this name.

Having only heard this name of the sea nymph from Greek mythology, I see this name as elegant and wise. It must not be very popular; I never come across others with this name, though I think its very pretty.
