Name Meaning

1 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.2 Swedish: probably a variant of Carlander, from karl ‘man’ + -ander, ornamental suffix from classical Greek anēr, andros ‘man’.3 Variant spelling of German Kalander ( see Kolander ).
