Imagine you're a boy or man. Charlot in the US, really?

Moony Says:


I dislike Charlotte. It's dull, it's standard, I hate how close it is to 'Harlot' and Scarlett (which is another name I don't care for) and, given that it's now the name of William and Kate's daughter, it's bound to grow even more tediously popular than it was to begin with. Charlot, on the other hand, is gorgeous. It's so classy and innovative and absolutely adorable but so mature at the same time. It really does seem like the perfect name, however my fear is that, given how obscure it is combined with how popular Charlotte is, it's just going to be mispronounced and mistaken for the girl version constantly. That would be a concern, but not a real deterrent... in my opinion, at least.

I'm not keen on Charlotte at all but Charlot for a boy? I think it's rather handsome in and of itself, and rare as well. True, it is likely to be confused for a misspelling of its feminine version but I think it's distinctive enough that you'd only need to be corrected once. Overall, a great choice for anyone looking for a charming and elegant boy name.
