If your new bundle of joy is the rock of your life that keeps you grounded, we have a name for you. The gender-neutral Scottish name Callan means “battle” and “rock.” This charming name derives from Ó Cathaláin, which means “descendant of Cathalán.” Over the years, it has made its way through mainstream media, with a film and British TV show being called after this name. Another across-the-pond, popular version of Callan would be Cáthal, but either way, you’re tying baby to their roots and giving them something truly unique.
