It's also quite often a blend of Charlene/Charlotte and Elize. This is a frequent approach in South Africa, which started as a response to the pressure to use family names for children who would then share that name with several cousins! And so the habit grew ... I knew a Maria Elizabeth Helena who was known as Marelna, and gave it to her daughter as a complete name. And there are many others!
