Name Root:
kalós > kállistos
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “kállistos (κάλλιστος)” meaning “very beautiful, wonderful,” which in turn derives from “kalós ‎(καλός),” meaning “beautiful, lovely, virtuous, noble.” Kallisto was a daughter of the Arkadian King Lykaon and a hunting companion and a nymph of the goddess Artemis. There were several contradictory versions of her story. Still, ancient writers all agreed on many facts: that she was seduced by the god Zeus, transformed into a bear, bore a son named Arkas, was hunted down like a beast, and placed amongst the stars as the constellation Ursa Major.
