Calicothis is name sounds slightly exciting, the nickname Cali could be used. The name conjures up images of summer to me. It is unique without being too out there and I have never met a child called this.
Calico is a type of fabric that gets its name from a city in India (called Calicut by Europeans in the middle ages). It also refers to a certain multi-colored pattern of cat.
