A traditional English pronunciation is KAR-mee-an, with a hard "k" sound. Lovely name :-)

I have a friend named Charmian, and I think it is a very pretty name.

I love this name, but only pronounced 'KAR-mee-an'. That pronunciation seems to make more sense, anyway.

It's an anagram of chairman.

In the book, Hand of Isis, this is Cleopatra's handmaid's name.

I think this name is ugly and slightly ghetto. Charmian makes me think of Charmin toilet paper and their hilarious commercials with the bears.

Exactly what I was thinking! The spelling is almost the same, remove the 'A' and you've got the toilet paper brand 'Charmin'!
