Trying to think of baby names and not getting far at all.
Calum / Callum is on the list but can't decide which spelling I prefer. What do you think?
15/04/2013 at 21:25
I think I would automatically spell it Callum. Not sure why, but it was on our list and that's how we both wrote it down!

2nd for me too.
15/04/2013 at 21:27
Callum. Calum looks more like cale-um to me.
15/04/2013 at 21:28
Don't know why except maybe that it is how my friend spells it. I have a feeling it might be the 'proper' (for want of a better word) Scottish way to spell it.
2nd one for me too

I think Calum is the Scottish way which is why I'm more drawn to it lol. Wonder what the reply from the Scots would be?
Ah Alsi, you've proved my theory right :-)

Haha glad to be of service!

Calum as I think of Callum as in mc callum iyswim

Callum is my hs favourite boys name (has been for years but he says Calum looks like its missing an L )
15/04/2013 at 21:44
Ah yes CP good point, it is more surnamey up here. I know a few McCallums
15/04/2013 at 21:48
Callum for me.
15/04/2013 at 21:55
i'm a scot but it's Callum for me!
Callum for me too - only because a friends boy spells it that way.
Thanks all. So mainly 2 L's but the Scottish are in favour of 1 L. Think I'll just need to keep writing both down and see which I prefer the look of!

Ooh Morph, cross posted there - 2 each from the Scots then!
15/04/2013 at 22:01

15/04/2013 at 22:02
