The origin of Callie is still unknown but many believe that it has developed as a nickname for Calista. Calista itself can have two possible origins. A Greek and a Latin origin. The Greek word “kallista” means ‘fairest, most beautiful’. In the Latin source, Callie comesw from Calixtus. The root of Callixts is Calix which means 'cup'. In Greek mythology, Callisto was a friend of Artemis, the daughter of Zeus. Zeus has a crush on Callisto which resulted on them having a kid. Artemis who did not like this relationship shot Callsito with a silver arrow to avenge her mother. To save Casslito and her son, Zeus turned them into bears and sent them to the sky (which are now known as UrsaMajor and Ursa Minor). Calista itself has never had a huge popularity in English speaking countries but Callie gained a lot of popularity since the 19th century.
