  • "My name is Karlie and I love it. My brother was 2 years old and pretended he had a little friend named Karlie. When I was born they named me Karlie. Probably my mother spelled it that way because she liked unusual spellings.( Julie and Karlie are spelled about the same way.) A friend from church about 5 years older spells her name Karley. "K" is a pretty letter to write.I was born in 1953 so I have had that name way before is was common. I do have to spell my name quite often to people because they usually spell it Carly."

  • "My name is Carly and I hate it there are no nicknames for it unless you like the name car and it's too little girly so, please if you are thinking of naming your kid Carly don't just don't" Sep. 5, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Carly, and I hate it. The sound is awful and it seems childish. I've come to hate it when people call me by my name." Jun. 25, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Carly, and I absolutely despise it! ever since the popular Nickelodean TV show "iCarly" came out, that's all I've been called. Teachers, Peers, doesn't matter. To them I'm either iCarly or Carlos. I am neither a boy nor the star of a TV show my little sister watches. This name is to common and boring, and unless spelled with a "K", to me, is not pretty at all. I like the sound, but not the spelling. Karli would be a much better choice, in my opinion. either way, I'm changing my name when I'm old enough." May. 6, 2011: Report as inappropriate
