Comments for CHARMAINE:
I thought it was a female form of Charlemagne.
My name, Charmaine, is spelled on my birth certificate without an "e": Charmain. I don't know if that's due to a misspelling by my parents or an intentional spelling. I have vacillated throughout life in spelling my name, at times including the "e", at others dropping it. Numerologically, that's probably why I have so many changes in life.
There was a World War song entitled "Charmaine," which shows its popularity during the World War years.

I've always thought Charmaine sounded a bit too close to chow mein for my tastes. I can just hear the playground rats going "chicken Charmaine!"
I'm probably the only person to ever notice this, but Blanche DuBois on "The Golden Girls" had a younger sister with this name.

I have always liked this name since I was a little girl. Pretty and elegant sounding.

I love the sound of this name but I'm not sure about the spelling. Charmaine reminds me of the state of Maine, Charmain reminds me of Main St., Charmein reminds me of chow mein. Charmayne and Charmaen are ok but I don't know.

This name is probably supposed to sound elitist, snobby, and over-the-top, but somehow it makes me think of parents from a ghetto trying to pick a sophisticated, elegant name and failing miserably.

Imagine triplets called Charlotte, Charlene and Charmaine.

The main character in Diana Wynne Jones' 'House of Many Ways' is called Charmain, and people regularly mistake it for 'Charming'. I like it, especially without the e.
Amazingly tacky. I'd expect her sisters to be Chardonnay and Tiarna.

This name means "Bountiful Orchid" in French. I am not sure what the Latin meaning is, but I was told as a child it has Latin roots.
Charmaine sounds like some sort of ghetto name, and like Charmian, it makes me think of Charmin toilet paper.
"Charmaine" means little song and Henry Mancini recorded a song by that name.

Sounds like a popular bathroom tissue in the US. Wouldn't like to have people ask me if I was squeezably soft.
This is my sisters name and my sisters are Jacqueline, Michaela, Mollie, Emily (me), Erika, Dorothea and Harriet. Not Harmonee and Melodee and Princess. She is named after my great-uncle Charles as my mum's aunt who she hated is named Charlotte. She has never been bullied or made fun of ever. We call her Charli so unless you have met a Charmaine don't assume things you don't know.
On the American television series "The Golden Girls", Blanche has a sister named Charmaine. They also have three other siblings: Virginia, Clayton, and Tad.
