Charlie- boy's name short for Charles.....

What do you think? is it too much of a 'dog's name'

Does Prince Charles / Charles Manson mean it's ghastly?

Thanks! smile

I've got a Charlie and he suits it so well smile so I think its a great name!!

I think it's a sweet name. It's quite popular around here and I know quite a few and wouldn't associate it with anything ghastly!

It's a great name

DH would insist on 'Charles' as the 'proper' name though..... I can imagine Charlie on a kid would be quite sweet...

anyone hate it?

It is becoming VERY popular, so may mean several in same class.

all the names I like are becoming uberpopular!

Charlie is a lovely name

only one in ds' reception class and the next one is about 3 years above him so popular but not in the leagues of Jack, Oliver etc.

It is very popular. It is OK IMO but I'm not that keen, not sure why.

I know quite a few baby/pre-school Charlie's. Such a cute name smile

oh it's on my list grin

My grandad was Charles/Charlie.
there is a Charlie in our swimming class and a school friend has named her 3rd son Charlie but it's not enough to put me off.
My DH is a bit put off by the Prince Charles thing but it is still one of our two possible boys names.
I've only known one dog called Charlie but again that hasn't put me off!

Don't do Charles - too stuffy. I know someone who has used it with another stuffy name poor kid. Charlie is lovely. Not met many baby Charlie's.

It is a drug, a cheap 80's perfume and a mild insult. I say no.

beanieb Fri 11-Sep-09 18:45:09

like the drug?

HigherThanAWombat Fri 11-Sep-09 18:56:59

I don't like it. It's bland and overused imho.

Charles is a lovely name, really nice. Unusual too. Charlie is more common but a nice nickname.

We have a charles who is commonly known as charlie so am obviously biased but think it is a fab name and it suits him down to the ground.

Love it, Charles is a solid adult name and Charlie is cute on a child.

Can't understand only giving a child the abbreviation - can't see that it gives them scope to grow into the name?

It is the most popular dogs name i heard on a tv quiz recently.

Its also a drug.
