Baby Names

Girl name: Charlee/Charlie

We really like the name Charlie/ee for a girl and would LIKE to spell it Charlee.  My dad's name is Charles, my FIL dad's name is Lee = hence Char-lee! 

Do you think the majority of people would pronounce it Shar-lee? or Char-lee? I actually think "Sharlee" is pretty too... I just don't want her to have to correct everyone all the time.

 I'm not a huge fan of "weird" spellings with typical names, just wanted to incorporate our dads :) 

 Open to opinions!!!

Re: Girl name: Charlee/Charlie

  • Say it isn't so. My opinion is that its a boy name.

  • I doubt many will agree with me, but I actually like Charlie for a girl as a NN.  What about Charlotte and then you can call her Charlie?

  • What about naming her Charlotte and her nn can be Charlie? I don't like it spelled Charlee at all though.

  • I think if you spell it Charlee, your child will spend her whole life correcting people's spelling and pronunciation.  People will hear it and assume it's spelled Charlie.  People who see it will want to pronounce it Shar-lee.

    Your kid will be dealing with this issue forever.

  • I don't mind Charlie as a NN for a girl, but I really think you should consider a feminine formal name.

    What about:

    Caroline Lee

    Charlize Lee

    Charlene Lee

    Carla Lee

    Charlotte Lee

    Carlotta Lee

    We've hashed this out a lot here - but what if your daughter doesn't think it's so cute when she has to deal with being Mr. Charlie the rest of her life?

    I agree with this. Charlie isnt my favorite for a girl at all, but if you want to use it, I'd suggest giving her a name like Charlotte, like pp suggested above. I dont see Charlie or Charlee looking very professional on a resume in 30 years either.

    I know you want to honor your dad and FIL, but those are males. Your daughter is a female. Are there any female names in the family you could use? What if your next child is a boy and both Charles and Lee are "taken" by big sister?

  • I think she would mind being confused that she's a boy.

    Charlie, even for a boy, is a nickname to me.  For a girl its even more juvenile sounding.

    Yeah, that's what I was afraid of :( No sense in "honoring" our dads and have it be a pain in the *you know what* for the kid ....

     Not a fan of Charlotte, we'd probably just pick a new name all together...

     I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it, but I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do it because of you.  I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.

    This. Totally a boy name.

  • I've seen it done Charliegh for a girl more often than Charlee.

    Have you considered Charlotte nn Charlie?

  • I hate this name.  I will never understand why people think its oh so adorable to call a girl Charlie... Might be kind of cute when she's two but she is going to be a real adult looking for a real job some day... I can't take a kid named Charlee seriously.

  • Charlene? Charlotte? I think these are better girls names. Then you could use the nickname Charlie. 
  • I think the smooshed spelling is incredibly cheesy. You don't have to honor everybody with one baby. And why don't you want to honor any females in your family?

    In any event, I think most people will pronounce it Charlie even if spelled incorrectly.

  • I'd do Charlotte, NN Charlie, with the middle name Lee.

    Charlotte Lee.

    Exactly.

  • Not a fan... I guess I can see how it's cute for a baby/little girl, but she's only going to be a kid for so long.  I'd suggest a legitimate, sophisticated, feminine name and use Charlie as the NN.  Charlotte and Charlize are great names.

    This name is so trendy. There's no way it stands the test of time. I feel like naming your kid Charlee guarantees to date her for the rest of her life.

    I went to high school with a girl named Charlee.  It fit her, and she liked her name.  Not sure how she felt when she was  younger, or if she changed her mind about later on...
