Charlee Origin and Meaning

The name Charlee is a girl's name meaning "free man".

Charlie in all its forms has been a wildly popular gender neutral name since the turn of this century, a choice that is near equally used for boys and girls.

The Charlee form is more heavily feminine and this spelling has started to dip slightly in the charts. We prefer the classic Charlie, but some parents prefer the Charlee or Charleight spellings to identify the name more clearly as feminine -- though of course all spellings sound alike.

More than two times as many baby girls are named Charlie than Charlee, and about twice as many are named Charlee as Charleigh. But only about 1 percent of the male Charlies spell their name Charlee.
