Calum is primarily a masculine name of Scottish and Gaelic origin. The name derives from the Latin word “Columba,” meaning “dove,” and references the influential Celtic missionary, St. Columba. The saint was credited with converting Scotland to Christianity, and Calum had already become very popular among Early Christian homes. Universally though, the term “dove” represents all that is pure and peaceful, allowing the name to resonate across many cultures and religions. Nowadays, the baby name is less prevalent than its variant, “Callum,” but there’s no doubt if baby’s involved, this virtuous moniker will hit the charts once again.
