Kalyke is the name of several figures in Greek mythology and the name of one of Jupiter‘s moons. The name comes from Ancient Greek kalux meaning “husk, pod” which refers to the covering of a flower or fruit, perhaps derived from Ancient Greek kalupto (to cover, conceal) which may possibly be derived from PIE root *kel- (to cover). It’s related to Latin Calyx. As for the pronunciation of the name, I’ve been pronouncing it as ka-lie-kee though it could also be possibly pronounced as ka-lee-kee.
