  1. Named after my beloved Grandpa Charlie! I knew I wanted to name my first Charlie. For some reason we were convinced we were having a boy, but when we found out we were having a girl, we decided we loved the name just as much!

  2. We chose Charlie, short for Charlotte simply because we loved it. We thought Charlotte was very elegant/classic, and it was the first name that we had picked and loved it immediately, so we chose it!
    We chose Charlie for short because we are fans of the whole “boy name for girls” (like Jo from Little Women!). We think it’s just a very cute name!
