Comments for CHARLENE:

I have it on good authority that the name "Charlene" ought to be pronounced char-LEEN with the stress on the LAST part of the name. Not SHAR-leen, which must be an American pronunciation. In France it's pronounced shar-LEHN... (if you can role the R that would be appropriate). [noted -ed]

I believe the name is also pronounced Charl (same as charles). This is my name and I pronounce it with CH as in chuck, chair, charles.

This is my name and in all my searching I have found no famous person, no historical figure with this name. This is rather annoying but in a sense gratifying. Also, a note on pronunciation: I pronounce it char-LEEN with the hard 'ch' as in Charles, also my friends call me 'Char'.

Char-LEEN may be the correct way to pronounce it, but SHAR-leen (which is the American pronunciation, by the way) sounds prettier.

Kylie Minogue's chararacter in the Australian soap opera, "Neighbours" (possibly more famous in the UK than Australia), was Charlene Robinson. The pronunciation in Australia is "shar-LEEN".

My name is Charlene. I think that the pronunciation is SHAR LEEN. I am NOT American but I know that it is pronounced that way.

I like the French pronunciation, it sounds more elegant.

My name is Sharlene but I would rather classify CHAR-leen as being too weird. If I was to name my child it'll be Charlene (SHAR-leen). It will probably (hopefully) be my child's middle name.

I'm used to pronouncing this name SHAR-lene. I think that way is prettier.

This is also my name and I spell it Charlene and pronounce it Shar-leen. I love my name because there's not too many of us about. I hardly ever get called my full name however, only normally by my mum who was a huge Dallas fan and named me after Charlene Tilton, most of my friends and family call me Char or Charls.

In my opinion, this name is Irish, but that's just me. I like this name, and it makes me think of somebody with dark brown hair and green eyes, for whatever reason.

I really like this name. It has a very nice ring to it, and it reminds me of a strong, intelligent, beautiful girl. Besides, Charlie makes a great nickname for a girl.

Variation: CHARLENA. It's pronounced Shar-leena. My cousin loves her name, Charlena. It suited her as a kid and still suits her (she's 33 now).

This is my name also. I pronounce it Shar LEEN. I also have the nicknames Char (shar), Charlie and Chuck. When I was little my mother called me chuck a luck and charlie chicken. In the '60's there weren't any other girls with my name and I was disappointed because I couldn't find any of the cute little trinkets with "my name" on them, such as keyrings, necklaces, etc. It's still not a popular name and those items are still devoid of the name.
