Variant spelling of Calum, the Scottish Gaelic form of the Late Latin personal name Columba ‘dove’. Popular among early Christians due to the link between the dove and gentleness, peace and purity, Columba was borne by a saint born in Donegal in 521 into a noble family. Trained in priesthood from an early age, he went on to found monastery schools at Durrow, Kells and Derry, then sailed to Scotland to spread the word of Christianity.
