What thinks the mumsnet jury - great names or not?

Charlene? As in Scott and Charlene circa 1988? Not for me.

How do you pronounce Myla?

Myla is okish but not Charlene !

myla is nice but charlene sounds trashy. myla as it looks - My-La

They aren't English though are they? I mean, what sort of a name is Charlene in Switzerland, assuming that's where they live?

Like Myla , not keen on Charlene

Horrible - but then he is called 'Roger'

that's ok - I'm sure people in Switzerland would think that Olivia and Ruby (top 10 names last year in the UK) were horrible too wink

People, they don't speak English at home. Those names sound different in their native tongue.

expatinscotland Sun 26-Jul-09 00:18:37

I wonder if she speaks English at all, tbh.

FAQtothefuture Sun 26-Jul-09 00:19:58

but expat - didn't you know that people all over the world are to call their children Jack and Olivia, prounced the English way, grin

expatinscotland Sun 26-Jul-09 00:22:24

Yes, because all others names are weird or chav.

Nancy66 Sun 26-Jul-09 00:25:48

they're both from well to do families - so maybe Charlene is posh in Switzerland, like Kevin is in France.

I think German is their mother tongue, so I think Charlene would be pronounced Charl-ay-na which I think is quite nice.

ilovemydogandmrobama Sun 26-Jul-09 11:06:45

Isn't she Slovakian?

PfftTheMagicDragon Sun 26-Jul-09 11:41:00

LOL FAQ...where would the world be without our tasteful name choices, eh?

The do seem to like their girls names ending in "a" in Switzerland - top swiss names
