Gender: F Meaning of Charlie: "free man" Origin of Charlie: Diminutive of Charles or Charlotte Charlie's Popularity in 2016: #185

Charlie is one of the friendly, tomboyish male nickname names--another is Sam-- now used almost as frequently for girls: in 2015, it actually ranked higher on the girls list than on the boys list for the first time. The name Charlie, for females, has been jumping up the charts since it reappeared, after a 50-year hibernation, in 2005.

Charlie has been a favorite for starbaby girls, including the twin daughter of Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell and the daughter of Julie Chen and Les Moonves. Jeremy Sisto has a hyphenated Charlie-Ballerina.
