English: from Middle English calle, cale (Old English cawl) ‘container, basket, net’, commonly used of a kind of hair net, close-fitting cap, or headdress worn by women to cover tied-up hair. The name could have been given as a metonymic occupational name to a maker of women's caps or perhaps of baskets or nets.
English: alternatively, perhaps a nickname from Middle English cale (also calle), a side form of calwe ‘bald’ (from Old English calu).
