What a lovely and classy moniker - it's feminine without being frilly, strong without being boyish. Though it has been very popular in Britain for awhile now, the name it still relatively underused in the US.

This is the middle name of actress Emma Watson. Her full name is Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson (Duerre is a surname, so I guess this was her last name before her mom got married.) I don't like 'Emma' with the name 'Charlotte'.

Charlotte Darkey Parkhurst (went by Charley Parkhurst) was a stage coach driver in the 1800s who was actually a woman dressed up as a man, acting like one too. No one knew of her sex until a physician examined her dead body in December of 1879. Under the identity of 'Charley', she was the first woman to vote in a presidental election for Ulysses Grant in 1868.

My name is Charlotte Anne and I love my name. Even though Charlotte is a very popular name in Britain, it still feels unique to me. I think it is a pleasant and feminine name.
-- charlotteanne  9/17/2005
That's so pretty! Charlotte is elegant and Anne is graceful (derived of Hannah, which means "favor", graceful). I have trouble finding names that sound pretty with names like Charlotte. Nicknames can be Charlie, Lottie. :)
-- Tbird  9/17/2005
I love this name! I think it sounds delicate and pretty and refreshing. I can't tell you how many "Olivia" and "Abby" baby girls I know lately; not that those names aren't pretty, but just over-used. Charlotte sounds beautiful and still refreshingly "new" to me. I just had a baby girl this past February and named her Charlotte!
-- proud mama  9/20/2005
I'm so glad you called your daughter that! I think it's a lovely name. A lot of Charlottes get called Charlie, or Lottie, which I think is really sweet. I myself tend to get called Char-lottie! I think it's cute!

Although my name is Natalie my friends call me Charlotte, as in Charlotte York from Sex and the City which I find flattering. It is a lovely name, it's so feminine and traditional!

I really adore this name for a girl. It's girlie, but strong. If I have a daughter, she will be named Charlotte and I would shorten it to Charlie because it's a great name for a girl.

My name is Charlotte Rose. When I was younger I hated to have it abbreviated but now I prefer it, yet I only let my best friends call me Charlie since there is another Charly in my year at school as well as a male Charlie. It's confusing otherwise :) Although you could always just do as one of my friends does and just call me Poizen!
-- PretteeGurlPoizen  4/30/2006
Charlotte is a beautiful, elegant, classy name. Charlie is an okay nickname but I prefer it pronounced shar-lee or the nickname Carly.
-- Anonymous User  4/30/2006
I bear this name, and have many nicknames. For example my friends and family call me Charlee (Char-li), Charl (Sharl), Char (Shar) or Charlee (Shar-lee). It gets very confusing but out of all my names I prefer the original version! It's classic and elegant.
-- charlottelauna  6/4/2006
Charlotte is a very beautiful name, but I don't think that it should be chopped up with nicknames. It is too lovely and elegant in the original form!

-- southernbrighteyes  8/6/2006
My first name's Charlotte and I don't like it much because whenever substitute teachers or someone get calls from the office "can you please send Charlotte to the office?" the stupid sub always asks for a boy named Charlie. Sometimes they even get my last name wrong too, oh yeah, just call me Charlie Johnson. I also dislike the fact that people sometimes call me "Spider" or "Charlotte's Web." (Those idiots think they're being so witty and original).

Anyway. I sort of like it, I guess. No one really calls me by a nickname, although my family calls me "Char-Char" for some odd reason. haha.
-- CkLmJ_CrAzY  8/17/2006
I like the name, I think it's attractive and unique without being pretentious. But I would never name my daughter this. It's derived from Charles, meaning "man." Because the name is feminine doesn't change its root meaning. Nor would I name my daughter Andrea, feminine of Andrew, meaning "manly."
-- Dray  8/22/2006
Worry not. Charles means "free man" in the general sense, not "of the male gender" (in the same sense that 'mankind' and 'one giant step for Man' includes women). "Free man" as opposed to someone who is not free. So Charlotte means 'free woman'. It's not a contradiction.

I recently used this name as the name of Juror #4 in a male/female production of Twelve Angry Men. To me, the name Charlotte fits the character well. #4 is a very powerful woman. She is no-nonsense and very concerned with facts. She is elegant and dresses impeccably.

I like this name. It sounds very formal and dressy. You can't really picture a Charlotte wearing jeans and a t-shirt. You see someone tall and skinny, pale wearing a dress or skirt from the way I see it.

I hated my name when I was a child. None of the other kids were named, Charlotte, and they asked me where my web was or called me "spider". As I got older, I realized that I liked my name. It's unique, it means "strong and womanly", and it's also elegant and old-fashioned. My middle name is Denae (da-NAE) and my friends and family mostly call me Char. I think I would detest the nickname, Lottie!

My thoughts about this name will always be positive, since it is my name; as I indicated in the impression form, it's a fantastic name. When I was a child some people tried to nickname me Charlie, but I would have none of that. As a young adult I did accept the nickname of Char.

Well my name is Charlotte Renee and I guess I have a love hate relationship with my name. Sometimes I think it sounds very regal and beautiful; however, I hate having the nickname Char and it always seems like when someone says my name when talking to me, that I'm in some sort of trouble. ^_^ But maybe that's just because I usually am haha. But yes, I would recommend the name Charlotte, it's uncommon while still classic and not too unusual. I also love the piece of my French heritage it brings to me.

My original birth name is Jacqueline with a middle name of Esme. Recently, I have added the name of Charlotte to my forenames, reason being I prefer being called Charlotte to Jacqueline. Fortunately for me, no one has foreshortened me as Charlie. I don't approve of it. Charley is okay but why shorten names when we've been given them or chosen them as a full name anyway. Charlotte is a genteel name.

Another reason I like the name Charlotte is because there was Queen Charlotte in the 18th century - she was married to King George 111 who came to stay in Cheltenham with the rest of the royal party in July 1781, I think was the year!

I have mixed feelings about the name. On the one hand, it's a pretty, sophisticated, elegant name that you don't have to be ashamed of by the time you're 30, it doesn't sound trashy, stripper-ish, or ghetto, and it is the name of the really cool former host of certain programs on Viva Zwei and later Viva, Charlotte Roche. On the other hand, this was the name of the mother of a woman in this documentary I've seen twice, about how the woman was sexually abused by her father and the mother didn't want to believe her and really hated her and told her she hoped she'd burn in hell when the parents divorced. She blamed it on her daughter, of course. I could never really get past that. Then there's the misogynous Charlotte Allen, who really could ruin the name on her own. So I'd say the name is ruined for me, but I do find it lovely.

I didn't used to be that fond of this name, I thought it was pretty, but not amazing. Then I have recently met a Charlotte in the 6th form I am starting at, and this name has really grown on me. I think it's beautiful and strong and very pretty. The Charlotte I know is called Char now she is 17, but Lottie is very cute for when a Charlotte is little! A lovely name!
-- little emi  7/3/2008
Being named Charlotte is OK but I always feel 'a bit posh'. Also jokers can rub letters c and te out. Rhymes with harlot and scarlot and similar to carrot - great if you've got red hair like me! Having said that, only relatives have 'teased' me with my name.

Oh I hate Charlotte. Let me count the ways. HARLOT, cutesey wootsy pudding and pie classic that everyone seems to rave about left, right and centre. Done to death. The 'sha' sound is so downmarket. I would have Violet or Scarlet over this. Lottie is very sweet though. :)

The name Charlotte strikes me as intelligent, sophisticated, playful, and of course sexy. Also when I hear/see it I picture a redhead. I read somewhere it means 'feminine and petite'. Could you ask for a better name to name your daughter?
-- chartiste  8/21/2008
No, it doesn't mean that, so hell yes you could find something better. If you take the commonly accepted meaning of Charles, Charlotte is the feminine pet form of "man".

My name is Charlotte Kay and I adore my name. I would never think about changing it because it is so unique and it flows so well. What I like best is that I have never met another Charlotte ever. When I was growing up it was kind of strange have such a sophisticated and strong name while being so young. However I grew into and I now love it. The only bad thing is when people try to shorten it with Char. Lottie or Charlie it just sounds wrong and odd.

Where in the heck are you, "Charlotte"? It's top ten material in many countries. Number one in a couple of Australian states, number one in New Zealand in 2006, extremely popular in England, Scotland and Wales. Jeez, you must be in the US. It's climbing there though too.

I want it finished and over with.

Wow, I am shocked at how vicious some of these comments are, even some directed straight at people in the comments who are actually named Charlotte. And you people call it trashy? I think to put down a woman's name that way in this comment thread is trashy behavior. It's one thing to not like the name, it's quite another to insult people for having it.

At any rate, I named my daughter Charlotte over 13 years ago when it was no where near as popular as it is today, and I live in the US where it has always been the least popular. It was close to 300 when I gave it to her. I had no way of knowing it would leap in popularity at the time. I chose it because not only do I love the name, but Charlotte Bronte is my favorite author, and Charlotte is an old family name on my father's side. For a girl the meaning translates to "strong woman" and my daughter is clearly just that. It suits her quite well.
-- Varuca  12/24/2008

It DOES NOT mean small and womanly. It's 'man'. Charlotte is the feminine pet form of Charlot from Charles.

The "man" does not necessarily denote gender either.

I like this name. It has interesting consonant sounds but not too many syllables. I know a girl named Charlotte who is called 'Sharlie' (with a soft c sound) for a nickname, which is nice, informal alternative.

However, I think calling a Charlotte 'Chuck' is taking it too far. Remember that tv show called 'Pushing Daisies', where the girl who was the romantic interest was called Chuck? Bleh- no wonder show was cancelled.

Charlotte is my middle name. It works well with my first name whice is Emma. I was very excited when I discovered that I shared the first two names of Emma Watson! But, I've found that Emma and Charlotte are often used together, for example, I have friend named Charlotte Emma. To me, Charlotte is both a very regal, sophisticated name and quite a casual name. It is suitable for all ages of girls and women and is very versatile with the huge array of nicknames. Charli, Chaz, Char, Lottie, Lotta, Lola, Tottie. My favourite nickname is Lotta. I love how Charlotte is a name that has made its way through the ages with grace and is not considered particularly 'old-fashioned' despite its significant age. For me, I'm not sure if I would every use this name for a future daughter because it is quite common and will probably remain so, and because I like some other names more, although Charlotte sounds and looks lovely. Being called Emma, I know better than to give my child a popular name.

This is my little sister's name - she was named after her great-grandmother but I've always associated this name with youth rather than old age. She's always gone by Charlotte, never Charlie or Lottie, but I think the former would be a good nickname as long as it's pronounced SHAR-lee and not CHAR-lee. People misspell her name more than one might expect (Charolette, etc.), but in all I think it's a beautiful name.

Lady Charlotte Matilda Bruce (1777-1816) was the sister of the famous Earl of Elgin who brought the Marbles from the Parthenon to Britain.

Her friends and family called her Chasse - their feminised version of the abbreviation Chas for Charles, which was her father's name.

I think Chasse is a cute alternative to Charlie and Lotte.

I've only met one person named Charlotte in my life, and she was in her forties and kind of creepy, to be honest. But I don't see why that would change my impression of the name, I think it's really pretty and it seems like its very popular.

This has been one of my favorite names for a long time. I LOVE the meaning - petite and feminine. A gorgeous and classic choice, plus very unique where I live. I don't know any Charlotte's.

I love the name Charlotte, it is very lovely.
-- cccake15  5/24/2013
I think the name Charlotte is simply beautiful, especially with Lottie for a nickname.

But please, never use Charlie for a girl. It's just so hideous as a girl's name.
-- Strangak  5/27/2013
It's a pretty name, but unfortunately its becoming very common with younger generations. At least it deserves popularity, unlike Madison or kaylee and all its variants. Charlotte makes a very good middle name too, if you're concerned about its popularity. It's elegant and classy, but not too over the top. I don't particularly like Charlie/Charley for girls, but I think Lottie is adorable :)

My mother, born in 1951, is named Charlotte. When she was little she went by Lottie, but has gone by Charlotte since high school. She is an incredible person and I love the name, but unfortunately it's just gotten too trendy for me to use on my daughter. In my son's preschool class of 22 there are 3 Charlottes. I understand its popularity, but I think it's becoming overused. At least it's feminine and classic, unlike many popular girls' names today.

My eldest daughter is called Charlotte - originally my husband named her in the hopes that he could call her Charlie - Turns out she hates it being shortened and only wants to go by Charlotte - I do occasionally call her 'Char' and get away with it when she's in a good mood.

I don't care for the name Charlotte. I prefer Charli as an alternative.
