Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
I don't see most women growing into this name well. I think it would be better to name your child Charlotte, Charlene, or another feminine form of Charles and call her Charley for short.

In 2018, 72 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Charley* who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 2, 209th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

I'm a Charlotte, who chooses to go by Charley. However, while I think Charley suits me more than Charlotte, I'm glad it's not my given name, as I think it's too informal sounding. I think Charley is better as a short form, as opposed to a given name.

I always use Charlotte formally, such as on my university applications, and I see Charlotte as being my 'serious alter ego'. Charley is my fun side!

The kidnapping of Charles Brewster "Charley" Ross (born 1870) was the first hugely publicized kidnapping victim held for ransom in the United States. He lived in Philadelphia and was lured into a carriage by a pair of men with candy, which basically caused the first wave of panic among parents about strangers and candy. His fate was never determined. A court did rule that a man was Charley Ross, but the Ross family never believed him.

There's a website about missing people who have been missing for more than a year, The Charley Project, named after Charley Ross.

I think Charley is a good name for either and it's not just because I'm a girl named Charley.

In the US this name is heavily stereotyped as a "British boy name," at least where I live. It's pretty uncommon in the States, I don't know of a single Charley. Whenever me or one of my friends hears it, we automatically think "European lad." Funny how it can be so overused in one place but pretty rare in another.

Ugly on a boy or girl, I much prefer Charlie but only for a boy.

As I said before, I spell it Charlie. However, "Charley" can be a used as a pet form of Charlotte.

My little sister's name is Charley and it's adorable. I love this name for a girl or a boy. I also know a little boy named Charlie. If you're naming a boy Charlie, use c-h-a-r-l-i-e but if you're naming a girl Charley use c-h-a-r-l-e-y. The y makes it more feminine, I think. Again, love this name for either gender!

This spelling is incorrect. It should be spelt C-h-a-r-l-i-e. Of course, my nickname is spelt Charlie.

Can also be a nickname for Charlotte.

I think this spelling is somehow more suited to girls, like Charli.

For a girl I have seen it pronounced SHAR-lee.
