Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? If you believe the meaning of this Greek name, then the answer must be Kallie. This name is a shortened form of Callista and it means "fairest or most beautiful." This cute name can also be used as a different way to spell Callie, an Old English name that means "lark," so baby can feel safe to embrace their free-spirited nature, flying where the wind blows them. Kallie is a variant of the Hindi name Kali, who was the wife of Shiva and a goddess of death, time, and doomsday, reminding baby to embrace life with both little hands. If you're looking for a more nature-inspired name for baby, then the Irish meaning of "from the forest" could be perfect—especially if her tantrums are a bit on the wild side.
