NATIVE NAME ROOT:
KALóS ‎(καλός) KáLLISTOS (κάλλιστος)
MEANING:
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, but ancient writers all agreed on a number of facts: that she was seduced by the god Zeus, transformed into a bear, bore a son named Arkas, was hunted down as a beast and placed amongst the stars as the constellation Ursa Major.
