"I want to name my daughter Charlotte Hope and call her Charley. I would just name her Charley but what if I have a girly girl?! My own name is 3 letters and you can't do much with it so I figure longer names let you personalize them with different personalities." Nov. 4, 2010:
"My name is Charlotte. I wish less people had my name, it's too common now. A lot of people thought it was an old lady name until Sex and the City came out. Anyway, I love my name, but a lot of people spell it as "Charolette" for some reason!" Jul. 21, 2010:

"My name is Charlotte Carol(because I was born at Christmas time) I didn't care to much for it as I was growing up in the 60's and 70's (when all of my classmates seemed to have cute names like Shari, Julie, Susan, Lori, etc.) but now I appreciate the soft, pretty uniqueness of my name. Both Char and Charlotte work for me!!!" Oct. 23, 2009:
"I'm a Charlotte too! I've known a few Charlottes, with most of them being Charlotte Elizabeths like me, which is kinda rubbish cause you'd think that would set you apart, but no, we're all the same! Haha! Don't like being called Charli or Lottie but i get both them names.. my friends call me Larli most of the time, just read below that someone has the same nickname but spelt Larly, weird! I like my name anyway :)" Oct. 7, 2009:

I like the fact that I've only met two other Charlottes in my 19 years. :)
I never really had a nickname until I met my current boyfriend, who likes to call me Char. It's kinda cute, so I don't mind. Overall, I'm very glad this is my name." Nov. 19, 2008:

"My stepdaughter's name. At first I thought it was a bit dramatic and old-fashioned, but now I really like it. It's familiar to people, but uncommon enough (in the U.S., at least) to be appealing. And if people named Charlotte are interested in a more casual sounding nickname, they can be Charlie or Char (pronounced Shar) or even Lot/Lottie." May. 4, 2006:
"I am often called "Shirley" when I introduce myself, and few people can spell "Charlotte" often spelling "Charolette". Also, I was never able to order anything with my name on it from teh back of a cereal box because the designs only allowed for 8 letters, and Charlotte has 9." Apr. 23, 2006:

Alot of young people don't know how to spell it. The only people I meet with the same name are over forty." Feb. 10, 2006:

"Im 60 and I was named after a grandmother and a great aunt. I always loved my name and liked that it was uncommon. It is quite bizarre to have it become so popular!" May. 14, 2016:
"Im a 14 year old named Charlotte, and I've never really thought i suited it, it's a very classy name, and I'm not really the most sophiscated person, i prefer to spell my name Sharlot, rather then Charlotte because thats how i prefer it" May. 22, 2014:
"My grandmas name is "Sharlot" and for my whole life I've never met a "Charlotte" and it is almost weird to try and spell it with a "Ch". I like it much much better spelt Sharlot, because you can pronounce it the way it looks, "Sharr-l-uht", and with Charlotte, you can't. It looks like you would pronounce it "Sharr-l-aught". But that's just my opinion(:" Nov. 19, 2011:
"This is my name and I don't think anyone has ever called it me - it's always Char, Charl, Lottie, Charlie etc. or people call me by my surname. It's an okay name as I don't think it sounds trashy or anything, but everywhere I go there are at least a couple of other Charlotte's so it is common and no-one will ever call you by your given name." Feb. 6, 2011:

"My name is Charlotte and I love it but hate it when people try and shorten it to Charlie (too masculine). There were not that many of us 20 odd years ago but its becoming a lot more popular now. My parents call me Lottie or Lots for short" Jun. 21, 2008:
"My name is Charlotte, and I think its great. Some people call me larly - a bit weird, I know, but I like it... I know LOADS of people called charlotte, and that makes it hard coz people end up calling you by your surname, so its a bit impersonal." Jun. 9, 2008:

"Lots of Chinese people pronounce it wrong. I am always hearing "So your name is.....Char-lot (the way to pronounce it is Shar-let). Loads of people spell it wrong too. I have a classmate that has known me for three years, and still spells my name charlate or chorlate." Oct. 14, 2006:
