Full Names for Callie and Cali

Image Credit
Do you have any names where you hate it spelled one way but love it the other? That's true for me with Cali and Callie. I dislike the Cali spelling (it looks like California, that's confusing!), but think Callie is adorable. Callie is more popular, but Cali is rising quickly. They both work on their own, but there are some great full name options for them.

Expected:
California- It only makes sense if you're calling her Cali.
Calla- Bonus points for being both beautiful and a flower name.
Calliope- A little much, but not if you call her Callie.
Callista- Gorgeous.

Unique:
Calandra- Great name, but my computer thought I was trying to spell calendar.
Calico- The Calico/Callie combo seems very country to me, which is good if that's what you're going for.
Calida- Pretty and understated.
Kalila- She lends herself to Lila more so than Cali/Callie/Kali
Kallan- Slightly masculine, but Callie evens her out.

Unheard of:
Calais- Pronounced cah-LAY. She would make a great middle.
Caledonia- Way too much.
Calypso- A fun, peppy name.
Kalindi- You could also call her Lindy.
