    In a word, yes. You can't watch an hour of television, really, without seeing the commercials. Charmin is everywhere.

    I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, although I have far from read all of his works. I haven't come across Charmian before, but my first thoughts were the toilet paper, and that Charmian must be a masculine form of Charmaine or something along those lines. While the -ian ending is used on both genders (Lillian, Vivian, etc. for girls; Julian, Lucian, Sebastian, Aurelian, Valerian, Florian, etc. for boys), it seems much more prevalent on boys. Straight off, it struck me as quite masculine, sorry. But hey, Shakespeare makes almost everything okay. Maybe you could use it as a MN if you find it not-so-usable as a FN?
