      French
    • Meaning:

      "beloved"

  2. CharleyHeart
    • Origin:

      Spelling variation of Charlie
    • Description:

      Charlie and its many forms are on the rise -- including Charley, which relates more directly to the male formal name Charles. Surprisingly, though, while the number of girls and boys named Charlie are nearly even, there are six times as many girls named Charley than boys. The Charley spelling is now a fixture in the Top 600, though it remains less popular than Charlee for girls.
  3. ClarimondHeart

      French
    • Meaning:

      "Light of the World"
    • Description:

      Clarimond is related to the Occitan name Esclarmonde, and is probably the more wearable of the two variations.

      French
    • Meaning:

      "increasing, growing"
    • Description:

      Crescent is an intriguing word name with a pretty sound and links to the moon. Cressie could make for a cute nickname, as used in the Worst Witch children's TV series, short for Crescentmoon.

    • Origin:

      Welsh, Greek
    • Meaning:

      "love; grace, kindness"

  6. CharnaHeart
    • Origin:

      Yiddish
    • Meaning:

      French feminine variation of Claude

      Attractive form still très Parisienne.
  8. CelieHeart

      French variation of Cecilia
    • Meaning:

      "blind"
    • Description:

      Attractive, underused name made famous by the heroine of The Color Purple. Still, if you're going to go to Celie, why not go all the way to Celia or Cecelia? You can always use Celie for short.
  9. CrisantaHeart
    • Origin:

      Spanish from Greek
    • Meaning:

      "golden flower, chrysanthemum"
    • Description:

      Crisanta, while not related to Christine, would make a pretty and highly unusual alternative to that tried-and-true name. Because of its relationship to the chrysanthemum, the flower of the month of November, it's one of the recommended names for Scorpio babies as well as names for November babies. Crisanta might also give you a fresh route to nicknames like Cris, Crissy, or Cristie.

    • CloudHeart
      • Origin:

        Nature name
      • Description:

        This kind of plainspoken nature name (think River and Sunshine) may still carry a whiff of the hippie, but this one has a nice, airy feel.

        Diminutive of Catherine
      • Meaning:

        "pure"

        "crooked nose"

Clancy is a winner for either gender.

      • Meaning:

        "pure"

      • Origin:

        Irish
      • Meaning:

        Nature name
      • Description:

        Clove is a spice name that is a tad more piquant than Saffron or Cinnamon. It might get more attention now as a member of The Hunger Games family of names.
