My favorite girl name is Kallida, Kallie for short. It is based on a latin word, calida, that means passionate, enthusiastic, glowing. I originally used it as a name for a song I composed for my wedding.

In Latin, calidus means "hot; warm," but can also mean "fiery; passionate." Kallida can also be a form of Khalida, a feminine form of the Arabic name Khalid meaning "eternal; lasting forever."
