Comments for the name Charlene

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.

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