My guy vetoed Rebecca (my mom’s name and his sister’s name – but I just think it’s pretty). I’ve also realized that naming a boy after my old friend Charlie is problematic – psychotic ex fiance was Charles. (And I’m beginning to think Anne Sophia doesn’t suit my tastes.)
So I’m thinking of having the name Charlotte on hand. Except I don’t know what names go well with it. And Charlie could end up feeling way too masculine to a little girl (I hate my unisex name), so I want a nicely feminine combination.
(This is well in the future, but I feel lost without having two girls’ names firmly in mind. The other is Lily Kathleen.)
(Sorry! Any chance this could be moved to nesting?)

I don’t really care for Charlotte as a first name personally (no offense to anyone named Charlotte – it just isn’t my tastes). It just comes across as kind of matronly / older / etc to me.
I really like the sound of Natalie Charlotte though!

Charlotte is a beauitful name! What about Charlotte Grace? I think Grace is a classic and pretty middle name. 🙂

I’ve never really thought of Felicity as a name, but now that I see it, I love it! I voted for Felicity Charlotte. I love the Lissy nickname 🙂

Agreed Grace is beautiful BUT every other baby girl has Grace as a middle name lately. I like Adele or Teagan

I like Charlotte Grace as well! I am most likely going to name a daughter Charlotte Jean after my granna (her name was Jean) and I just love the name Charlotte!

I like Charlotte. It’s timeless.

I LOVE the name Charlotte. What are you planning on doing for a nickname?

Charlie, if it’s the first name, though I imagine Lottie will crop up eventually. Name comes from a little old guy who befriended me when I was six, died when I was 13. Was 102. Had served in both World Wars, lived on his own until he died. Really cool guy. The only Charlotte I’ve met went by Charlie, so…

I love the name Charlotte – a colleague at my work (who’s British) has a daughter named Charlotte and they call her Lottie. Soooo adorable.
I picked Charlotte Jane on the poll.

I love the name Charlotte but none of the middle names you suggested really stuck out to me, not that they were bad I just personally wouldn’t use them. Charolette Grace or Charolette Rose. I also LOVE the name Felicity, it’s on my list for when we have kids but I think Felicity Charlotte is a mouthfull.

I like Charlotte but don’t like your combinations, because they are a mouthfull. I think if you use Charlotte as a first name you need a short, 1 syllable mn. Charlotte Grace is good or Charlotte Rose, Charlotte Ann.

Just FYI that Charlotte is a SUPER popular name right now and she will likely have 2 or 3 Charlotte’s in her class at school. I love the name and have for a long time, but it’s popularity has turned me off to it. I chose Molly Charlotte because I just think Molly is such an adorable name! Also.. if you wanted to give her a nickname if you spelled it Charley it’s not as masculine.. just something to consider.

One thing – this baby girl is at LEAST 6 years away. 2-3 years until TTC, then Charlotte is my second choice for a baby girl. Charlotte is already doing a nose dive due to over-popularity. Hoping by the time Baby Girl 2 comes, Charlotte will be a wee bit less popular (if not, I’ll switch the name around for a less popular first name.)
