" Callan's quite a cool name though, you have to admit. :D "
Actually, as a kid I wasn't that keen on it because it seemed weird to me, even though none of the other kids really gave a shit. These days, though, a lot of people who find out my name's Callan seem to really dig it. So yeah, I actually like having the name now, fer sure.
 
To save confusion though ("Callum? Calvin?") I usually just tell people my name's Cal. Of course, that'll set some people off and ask what it's short for and I'll go into a whole round of explaining that. I also still have people call me "Cam" or "Carl" when I use the shortened form.
 
And don't even start me on my surname...

My name is Adam, my parents picked this because my dad thought "Matthew" was to biblical (haha). My daughter is named Addison which my wife and I thought meant Child of Adam, but turns out it means Son of Adam but we liked the name and kept it anyway.

I wasn`t named after anyone.  But coincidentally, my middle name is the name of my great grandmother, and my brother`s middle name is the name of my great grandfather! XD

Cáthal, I can only assume I was named that after the old kings of Ireland, and Cathal Brugha, a Revolutionary.

Apparently I was named after Kevin Bacon, and too bad it wasn't the bacon part.
