Subject: origins of "Cheryl"

Most citations I have found for the name "Cheryl" agree it is of French origin. However, I cannot find when it began to appear in the U.S. I don't know any person older than a "boomer" with this name; that Cheryl was born in 1946. Her mother pronounces this with a hard "CH" like "cherry" and she says that only the spelling with a "SH" should have the softer sound. Did some actress or singer have this name during WWII? who is the oldest Cheryl you know? Thanks....
