We are hoping to ttc before too long and hoping for a bfp this month, we now have three boys, their names are Alexander, Jack and Benjamin, if we were too have a girl i would really like the name Charlotte.

Do you like this name, and do you think it goes withthe boys names nicely?

Personally I don't like the name but it does go with your boys names nicely.

Yes and yes.

The only reason DD is not a Charlotte is because she didn't "look like one" to me, I am slightly glad as it seems quite popular (deservedly) and I am one of those people who avoids top popular names where I can.

It matches well and is a lovely name (hence its popularity I guess original.gif)

It is not a name I would use as I find it a bit prissy and I do not understand the concept of having names that ' go with' siblings names.

I think it goes perfectly.

It's a pretty and classic name. I must admit that when head-to-head with another feminine spin on Charles, I prefer Caroline, but there is nothing wrong with Charlotte itself.

For whatever reason I'm really liking C names right now - Caroline, Claire, Catherine, Celeste, etc. and Charlotte wouldn't be in my top five, but it's fairly nice itself.

I have never liked the name Charlotte, it's just a bit too prissy and I don't like Charlie as a NN. I prefer any of the other alternate names la di dah suggested over Charlotte.

Friends called their daughter Charlotte just becasuse her last name was Webb and that was a favourite childhood movie. I feel a bit sorry for her but I would guess kids her age wouldn't know the movie, I'm a bit young to know it myself if I had not been told.

Oh dear. I quite like Charlotte but with Webb as a surname is just cruel.

I love all your names and plan to name my own babies Charlotte and William - I love Alexander, and I love Benjamin too but my brother is Ben so no go. Beautiful names.

Surely 'popular' is an understatement? Ubiquitous is closer to the mark.

So many names, yet so many Charlottes.

Agree with this.

It is an absolutely beautiful name, but WAY too popular for me. It seems like your taste is for classic, top ten names though, and your boys' names are classic and wonderful, so it fits well.

If you don't like Charlie, Lottie is another nickname.

Yes, it's popular, however I only know of 2. I know of 4 Juliets and that is not even Top 100, depends on where you live.

OP, I love the name Charlotte (although I do prefer it as a middle name) and I think it goes well with your boys names. Just don't use Charlie as a NN, it's awful.
