  • "My middle name is spelled Charise, with only one 's'. I think this is a very unique name. I was given this name because it means charity or cherish. I'm glad to have this name. I couldn't see my name in any other way!" Aug. 3, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our daughter Charisse (she was born in 2011). We pronounce it "Kareece." We picked the name as a variant of Charis/Karis, the Greek word for Grace. It seemed appropriate to us--we want to remind her how gracious God has been to her and for her to spread that grace to others." Nov. 2, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is spelled Sherese and I'm in my 40s. I grew up in rural North Carolina at a time when no one else had a name like mine so folk just called me Reese and Resa because they couldn't figure out what to do with those first 3 letters. Nowadays people have so many exotic and convoluted ways of pronouncing it (such as the Mexican version Shay-Ray-Say) that I've learned to answer to just about anything that's close. But my parents called me Shuh-REESE so that's what I call myself." Jul. 6, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Charisse and I absolutely love my name. It is different, and unique but not crazy. I think my name is just enough to know that I'm black, without having an overly ghetto name. Unlike some of the other girls' experiences, I have met and heard of many other Charisse's in my life and I am only 18. Like another girl earlier, I was named after my father Charles. I thank my parents for such a beautiful name." Apr. 9, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Charisse pronounced SHA-RESSE. I love my name it fits me so well. Charisse supposedly means grace and beauty (or something along those lines), and everybody says that they can't see me with any other name. It really is a beautiful name. I was named after Cyd Charisse and my mother who's name is Charlene." Apr. 4, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My mom got very creative with my spelling - it's Chyresse (pronounced "Sher-reese") When I was growing up, my nickname was "Reese" or "Chyresse's Pieces" I think, like many others, I didn't like having a name no one could pronounce (namely substitute teachers) but now, it's nice to be unique."

  • "My name is Charisse, but it's pronounced "Cha-reese", not "Sha-reese". I was named after Cyd Charisse also, my mother decided she liked a "cha" sound to begin the name instead. I haven't met a lot of people with the same name as I do, which I love. At first, I hated my name because no one could pronounce it [People would call me "Carissa", "Cha-rice", or "Sha-reeze". How they got those from "Charisse", I don't know.] or spell it correctly, but now, I absolutely love it because it's unique and flows with my last name as well. I am really proud to of my name."

I think its a beautiful name and love it dearly. Right now Im actually looking for a name that is as uncommon for my unborn child right now. I cant have an unusual name like Charisse and my child have a common name like Madison or Ashley. Anyway I think Charisse is one of the best names ever." Apr. 29, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Charisse. I was also named after Cyd Charisse the famous dancer from long ago. I was born on Christmas Day in the 1970's.

  • "My name is pronounced the same but spelled Charyce. I'm not quite sure why my mother decided on that spelling, but it works for me! I've always liked my name, beause I never got confused with someone else. I think I was 28 before I ran into another one, and that was a 2 year od.

I came across Charisse which meant beauty, grace and kindness.. at least that is what the website says.. After that I found this website that teaches me how to pronounce it.. Thanks to Charisse for that.. In my opinion, I like the name very much.. very sweet, feminine, unique, rich...." Aug. 3, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is spelled Charese, pronounced shu (as in "shut") REESE (as in the peanut butter and chocolate candy). Every substitute teacher I ever had thought it was "Charles," which was ironic because my grandfather Charles had hoped for a grandson named after him. Instead he got a granddaughter whose name was just mistaken for his! I've met a few people whose names are pronounced the same, but very few who spell it the same. I truly enjoy having a unique name." Jul. 22, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Charisse. People usually never pronounce it or spell it right. It is pronounced more like it should be spelled Shereece. I have never met anyone with my name.

  • "I am in my 40's and was also, named after Cyd Charisse and Omar Sharif. My spelling is Cherese with an accent mark over the s, which should be over the middle e, but my mom didn't want anyone to "spell it the same." (rolls eyes) pronounced sure-reese. Nobody ever spells it correctly, no even my own father, unless I say, "write cheese, now put an r between the two e's. Made the mistake of saying this to a teacher who wrote it wrong every time and he just wrote Cheese from that day forward. Friends in high school called me cheese, other nick names were Reese (Often little kids who can't pronunciate well.), Sure-Reeses-Pieces and Cho-Reese-O. I love my name, I am ALWAYS complimented on my name and don't mind the misspellings because it's unique, so I get it. Never met another Cherese until I was in high school, have only met one other, since and we all had different spellings." Dec. 27, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's not my name but names of two people I went to school with years ago. I'm using it in a fiction story so I was researching it. It's a lovely name in all it's incarnations. Nice to see it is still so popular. I didn't know it came from Charles. That's good because Charisse is a twin in the fiction story. I did want to comment for the people whose say their names are mispronounced. My recommendation: repeat it when people mispronounce it and don't let them get away with turning it into one syllable. my name is Valentine. Seems easy, doesn't it. I have to teach people how to say it and not shortchange it to Val or Teen or Tine." Sep. 15, 2010: Report as inappropriate

I was named after Cyd Charisse and a student my mother had (my mom's a teacher.) Strangely, my aunt (mom's sister) also had a Charisse. They both loved their Charisse's and hence I got the name. It is hard for people to spell although CHARISSE is the original way so I understand. I am considering going by Cyd to decrease the butchering of my beautiful name."
