Callander Name Meaning

Scottish: habitational name from Callendar near Falkirk or Callander in Perthshire. The original form and meaning of both place names is unclear, but it is certain that they were once distinct; later the former name was transferred to Perthshire under the Livingstones, Earls of Linlithgow. Swedish: probably a variant of Carlander, from karl ‘man’ + -ander, ornamental suffix from classical Greek aner, andros ‘man’. Variant spelling of German Kalander (see Kolander). In some instances, probably a variant spelling of English Callender.
