Calen is a Greek gender-neutral name embodying the ancient hallmarks of enduring ethereal beauty. Stemming from the ancient Greek katharos, meaning "pure," Calen is the final form of a long lineage of blossoming and growth. As katharos stretched across the European continent, it evolved from Katherine to Catalina to the Old French Cateline_._ From here, the name graced Irish shores, where it transformed into Caitlín and eventually Calen. Yet there are others who weave a different tale, placing Calen as a variation of the Gaelic Caolán, which means "slender." No matter if you appeal to Greek mythos or Celtic lore of the fair and slender Tuatha Dé Danann, your little Calen will have every confidence in your everlasting adoration.
