This is my middle name. Mine has a variant spelling that is not listed though. As a child I hated it, thought it was an "old lady's name", now I love it! It is not heard often and makes me feel a little bit more unique, especially the way it is spelled (Eyrlene).

Good Southern name. It's very feminine and pretty- I love the -ene ending on most names. It would be nice if this one made a comeback.

This one sounds like a particularly ugly variant of all the possible old-fashioned redneck America names out there. Ugly and ditzy. Not good.

I prefer this spelling of all the feminizations of Earl.

Earlene is also my middle name, and it means strong woman.

This is my middle name and was meant, like its meaning here, to represent the feminine form of Earl (my grandfather's name). However, I have since found out that it is a variant of the Irish "Earlean", meaning dedicated.
