Meaning:cup; fairest; beautiful; lovely
Cali is a gender-neutral name with Latin origins meaning “cup,” “fairest,” “beautiful,” or “lovely.” This name is often used as a short form of Calista but has since become a name in its own right. When parents give their daughter the first name Cali, they’re probably not thinking about California. They might just be looking for a cute, short name that stands out in a roomful of Emmas and Olivias. Since it’s an invented 20th-century name, Cali has no confirmed history. If you’re looking for something short, sweet, and cute, Cali is an excellent choice.
