A Real Charmer
(I took about half an hour to come up with the pun in the title for anyone who appreciated it. Thank you.)
I have rediscovered a new name which has subsequently really caught my fancy - Charmian. It's Greek, it's Shakespearian, it's rare - what more could you ask from a name really? However, there is a slight problem. There is a name which is, to me, the epitome of all that is evil and hideous (because of a personal association...and also because I just hate it with a passion) which sounds very similar.
Charmaine/Sharmaine/Sharmayne/Shahrmayyne embodies everything I hate in a name. (Not sure why - does everyone have those names which are just unspeakably repugnant?) Anyway, since Charmaine and its posse of equally repelling spellings seem to be very popular at the moment, do you think Charmian would get confused for a rather more attractive mispelling? Would it be mispronounced as a result? Thanks Berries!
(Sorry to anyone called Charmaine or has a daughter/relation/close friend with the name. I just really dislike it for no apparent reason. Sorry.)
