I would say (Cal-an) like Calvin without the V, but others might say (Cay-lan). I like it, but I'm a sucker for names like Caden, Calan, Braden, Bralan, etc...

I would have pronounced it rhyming with Alan. It's a great name! Just prepare yourself for possible pronunciation stumbles. We have that issue with two of my children's names so I've come up with short, easy ways to convey the correct pronunciation - e.g., Garen rhymes with Karen. You could just say Calan rhymes with Alan.
