I think that's how you spell it.

I don't understand the name choice. I know he hasn't started using John Smith at this point, or at least I don't think he had, but who is Caligari? Is it a reference from a lost story or just a name he made up? When I watched it it felt like there was something more there, but I have no idea what. It just seems like such a random name.

I don't know where the name came from, but I am 99.9% sure it wasn't something in one of the missing stories. At least I don't remember hearing it on any of the audios I have listened to. I'd check google but for some reason I can't get it to load

The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari was a German silent film from 1920.  It's sometimes described as the first ever horror film

Well that answers that then, thanks Smiley

Still though, a bit of a random name choice, don't you think?

I suppose it's more inventive than John Smith which would become the later staple, but it's very random.
