My grandmother was called Chernya (×åðíÿ). I believe, it also the variant of name Charna accepted in the Jewish places of Russia and Belarus.

The Slavic word was cherno "black".

When I really think about it, there's something rather dark about this name. It sounds even a little scary to me (though I'm not sure why). Maybe it's because of the name's meaning and because of the fact that it's spelled similar to Charn (the name of the place Jadis came from in Chronicles of Narnia). It sounds like a good name for a black cat. But I'd definitely use it.

Actually it does mean "black" rather than "dark". There's twin word "czarna" in Polish. [noted -ed]

This name sounds spellbinding, like the name of a beautiful witch who you can't really decide is good or evil. I love it.

I believe it's written as "טשאַרנאַ" in Yiddish.
