Calin is a gender-neutral name with many origins, each as intriguing as the last. It's most likely a respelling of the Greek name Caitlin, meaning "pure," or Irish Caelan, meaning "eternal warrior," "holy water," and "slender." It's also just a punctuation mark away from Călin, a Slavic name that translates to "guelder rose." What a mix! In Romanian, it means “strong” or “very good.” Whichever speaks to baby's roots, you'll find their arrival in your arms brings you only joy and pure bliss. Irish rugby fans will think of star player Caelan Doris, who is often outshined by his loveable golden retriever, Woody. Calin is positively the name for an unstoppable, multi-faceted munchkin!
