I love the name Caroline, but I wish it meant something other than 'man', you know?
PeacieFreak13  6/3/2005
To the above poster: Caroline doesn't mean 'man'. When a name is feminized, the meaning is also feminized. Caroline means 'woman'.
Mommy2B  7/4/2005
A masculine name may be feminized, however, the meaning of the name NEVER changes.

My name is Caroline, and everywhere I have looked it has always said that Caroline means "Beautiful Woman" if that is any consolation to the one upset about the "man" connotation.
Little-Beeps  12/3/2005
Caroline is the feminine form of Charles. It is also from a German root meaning "strong, song, melody, and woman".
kastlewalls  8/19/2005
Well, ok. I like this meaning much better!

A famous bearer of this is comedienne and actress Caroline Rhea (born April 13, 1964). She is most famous for her role as Aunt Hilda on "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" which also starred the now pregnant Melissa Joan (Catherine) Hart (Willkerson), Beth Broderick, and Nick Bakay from 1996 to 2003. In 2002, she took over Rosie O'Donnell's talk show, which became "The Caroline Rhea Show", which was cancelled after its first full season. She appeared on an episode of "The Drew Carey Show" as Drew's girlfriend and has most recently been the host of NBC Universal's reality television show "The Biggest Loser", which begins its second season very shortly.

I once read this poem about the name...

Caroline - Meaning Melody

You're so melodicious and sing like a bird,
Any other comparision would be absurd.
In fact you look and sound so nice,
You could only be a bird of paradise!

Caroline is a likable name but in high school I knew a horribly catty and snotty girl named Caroline so this name makes me think of her and her type of attitude.

This is the most beautiful name a girl could ever have. I am in love with the name Caroline. She will be my first daughter.
Akua Topaz  7/7/2006
Caroline is such a beautiful, feminine name. I'd love it, if I had a second or third daughter (for the record, I don't have one, yet.) My only problem is, a lot of people mispronounce it ca-ro-lyn. It loses its beauty that way, in my opinion. Also, a cute nickname would be "Cari."

I have a sister named Caroline and we call her "Lina" (pronounced with a long I, not like "Lena") for short. I think it's a very beautiful name.
glukumalon  9/10/2006
This is not only the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder's mother - it was also her sister Carrie's name, except she was never referred to as Caroline, probably because she and the mother would have been confused.
Clesthaven  9/17/2006
In Sweden we pronounce it the original French way, kah-ro-LEEN. It is also spelt Karolin, but Caroline is the most common spelling.

Caroline of Brunswick was the wife of King George IV of the United Kingdom, and the mother of the ill-fated Princess of Wales, Princess Charlotte.
Zinoviya  10/17/2006
Caroline is my name and it does indeed mean "Beautiful Woman". It's in a bunch of name books and other sites, despite the fact that it comes from the name Charles. I love my name, and the name it came from (I have something for boys named Charlie, maybe it's because of my name?). Everytime I have a new teacher or a substitute they call me Carolyn, which I cannot stand. They are two totally different names and I think Carolyn is much less beautiful sounding. My friends call me Carrow (a Celtic name sounding just like Caro, which I hated the spelling of), Ca-row, or Crow. Also, my Italian teacher (from italy) and voice teacher (from Lithuania) call me Carolina.
Imber  11/2/2006
My name is Caroline (care-o-line) and I don't like it because it's sounds too old for a 13 year old (which is what I am). It's a beautiful name and I'll appreciate more when I'm older.
redsfan805  11/3/2006
This is my name. I like it because I'm the only one in the school with it, but many of my teachers pronounce it Carolyn. It is very annoying.
Sylvanist  11/20/2006
Caroline isn't a very common name and the people who have it are just as rare as the name. Just like my little sister.
kwebberag  11/30/2006
This quite a pretty name. It will certainly grow up with the child. One can envision a baby Caroline, an 8-year-old Caroline, a teenaged Caroline, an adult Caroline, and an elderly Caroline with ease.

It's very funny, because when I was born back in 1985, it was simply a joke to name your child Caroline or Karoline. But now it's more popular than ever. Getting very common in Denmark.

My mate is called Carolina but we call her Caz, so much easier I'll say!
Luangi  4/7/2007
Feminising a name does not change the meaning. It is still related to the word 'man' whether you want it to be or not. I believe the original meaning of Carl was more at 'free man' than 'man,' so I guess you can interpret it as meaning free with 'man' part being twisted into something like 'strong,' perhaps, but it still doesn't really mean woman.
― Anonymous User  4/9/2007
Pretty name!
CharlieRob  5/9/2007
I've always liked the name Caroline, and my mother's middle name before she was married was Carol, so I think it would be a good name, both because I like it and it respects my mom, for my daughter.

It's way too popular, and makes me think of a snobby, mean little girl.

I've always been told that Caroline means free woman since Carolus was a name given to a free man (with that meaning.) I know that the origin holds the meaning 'man' but since it's a feminized name I would still think that it could be considered to mean woman.

The mother of famous author Laura Ingalls Wilder, Caroline "Ma" Ingalls (nee Quiner), was the wife of Charles Ingalls and mother of 5 children (the 4 girls were the surviving): Mary Ingalls, Laura, Carrie (who's full name was also Caroline), Freddy(who died as an infant), and Grace.

She was in all of the 'Little House' series of books and portrayed by Karen Grassle in the famous television series in the '70's-'80's, and the character of Caroline also appeared in many miniseries and movies based on the life of The Ingalls Family. In the show, Caroline is pronounced caro-LYN
Sarah Elizabeth  10/31/2007
In English pronunciation the name Caroline is not pronounced KER-o-lien. It is always pronounced KAR-o-lien. I also have to agree with many of the comments about being called Carolyn instead of Caroline. It's incredible laziness to not listen to how a name is pronounced. I grew up as the only Caroline in my school, but there were many Carolyns. So I got lumbered with that, and I loathe the name Carolyn. Just awful.

I hate this name. Somehow it always makes me picture a pretty but mean rich girl in a boarding school. I actually dislike the ending and prefer Carolyn, even though I'm not crazy about that name either.

I love the name Caroline. It's soft and feminine and not too popular. So we named our new baby Caroline and will call her Callie while she's little. It suits her beautifully.

Caroline is a very sweet, pretty and endearing name.
jaclyn_francesca  7/24/2008
My surname is Caroline, which I think is pretty weird. I actually agree with people who associate the name with rich snobs, mostly because my family, especially extended family, can be very snobby. I think it is a very pretty first name, but I am not overly fond of it, mostly because I get called Caroline by various teachers.

I like the name, but only with the German spelling, Karoline. I also prefer the German pronunciation Kar-a-lee-neh. When pronounced by Americans, Caroline can become very harsh and spread (care-o-line).

This is my name and I like it very much. It stands out in my family because most of my relative have traditional/commonly used names (ex. Mary, Ann, William, Joseph, etc.). The only issue is that I get called Carolyn more than Caroline, which can get annoying. While Carolyn is also a pretty name, they are different, albeit slightly.

This is my name, and I love it. I've gotten a few 'sweet Caroline' jokes before, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's a great song! It was not a very common name when I was growing up. I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it's in the top 100 and has been for quite a while. I've always thought this name was old fashioned and sweet, and its suited me throughout my whole life- it really is one of those names that sounds just as good on a baby as it does on an old woman. That's just my opinion though, I may be a little biased ;)

Misscaroline09  9/13/2017
I like this name a lot. It is, however, very popular, and one might be better off with a rarer variant like Carolina. I think that this name means 'free woman', because Charles means 'free man'. It's like words: when you feminize the pronoun 'he', it becomes 'she', and refers to a girl. Names are like words. In fact, all names originate from words anyway, so feminizing them should work the same way. I suggest some rarer and more original nicknames than Carrie. Caz, Cassie, Cate, Connie, Lina, Liney, Oli, Ro, Roli, Rin... so many possibilities! An odd problem is that it can easily be mistaken for other names. I have seen Caroline confused with Carolina, Carolyn, Coraline, Claire, Clara... Even Christine!

XxTween.BeanxX  3/10/2018
My name is Caroline. My middle name is Cameron I’m always curious what other mothers paired the name with. And it’s my belief that if you feminize the name you feminize the meaning. Caroline means womanly or feminine. There’s no way on earth it means man. That’s what Charles means. I’ve researched the meaning and also name meanings in general. I love my name but had a “Bianca” phase at age 9- Thank goodness I outgrew that! And pronouncing my name Carolynn is a pet peeve. I introduce myself as Caroline because that’s my name. The “e” on the end make it a long “I”.
