Charlotte is the latest classic name to join Sophia, Emma, Olivia, and Isabella in a rise toward the top of the list, making Number 11 this year.

Charlotte is an elegant royal name, with a host of widely varied role models, from Charlotte Bronte to the spidery Charlotte of E. B. White's Web to the more recent Charlotte York, aka the prissy one, of Sex and the City. Charlotte is appealing to a wide range of parents because it sounds feminine yet grownup, sophisticated yet lush.

The name was popularized by England's Queen Charlotte Sophia, wife of King George III who ruled in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, was the mother of fifteen children and a patron of Mozart and Bach; Charlotte and George ruled England during the French and American revolutions.

Charlotte is now a pop culture staple--it was Scarlett Johansson's character in Lost in Translation and has been featured on TV shows like Lost and Revenge. The band Good Charlotte was named for a children's book with that title. An all-around winner of a name, Charlotte has been chosen by Dylan McDermott, Colin Hanks and Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. Nameberry favorite Charlotte, number one on this site in recent years, is climbing in popularity on the overall charts here and abroad.

In addition to Charlie, Lottie makes a cute nickname.
