Carlisle is a city in northwestern England. I have never thought of it as a name, but it's not bad.

I live in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. And only recently did I consider using it as a name. I even thought of the possible nickname "Carli"!

Carlisle Cullen is a major character in Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

It has a very elegant sound. I like it!

I love the name. It's obviously an older name and is not used too often, and I like being more original (without getting dumb and naming your kid after a vegetable or something).

I think that Carlisle is a really masculine, elegant name. The only way that anyone could think it was a girls' name is if they pronounced it CAR-lease-el.

Carlisle Cullen, a fictional vampire doctor from Stephenie Meyer's famous Twilight books. He is 362 years old and known for his strong will power and compassion.

It's a stupid name. Really, what would possess you to call your child Carlisle?! And I haven’t even started on the inappropriate naming of Carlisle Cullen (Twilight fans should know what I'm on about.)

This is the middle name of 'Dexter' and 'Six Feet Under' star Michael C. Hall. I like this name, but much prefer it as a middle name.

I think Carlisle is a very strong sounding name. It seems elegant and calm. I am all for this name!

I do not like this name. It has nothing to do with Twilight, I like Twilight, but I don't like the sound of Carlisle, the spelling looks somewhat clumsy, and it took me ages to figure out the pronunciation.

I wish that I had heard of this name without Twilight. Now whenever I mention it people must bring up my pettiness for loving a name from Twilight. A fantastic name overall, but with the Twilight pandemonia, not something I could use at the moment.

I find this name to be quite ugly. It probably has to do with the 'Car' beginning. It sounds out-dated rather than classic. The nickname 'Carl' doesn't exactly help either.

Awesome name and very easy to pronounce if you've ever seen the word "aisle". Seriously, people. That said, as much as I love it, I could never name my child this name because of Twilight (even if he was the only bearable character in that series).

I love this name. I admire the astrophysicist Carl Sagan so much that I would love to name a child after him, but I can't stand the name "Carl" - it sounds too harsh and brusque. "Carlisle" would be a beautiful compromise. The two "L" sounds in the second syllable softens it, creating a melodious, well-balanced name.

I like this name for a girl. I have a friend named Carlisle, but she mostly goes by Carli just because her last name is Callen, so she gets a lot of Twilight references.
-- megi99  2/11/2011
The name Carlisle was given to 46 baby boys born in the US in 2012. I like it. And I don't think the pronunciation will be a problem anymore.
