Charlotte w Carly as nn?

Would [name]Carly[/name] be an awkward nn for [name]Charlotte[/name]? We really want a nn for our daughter and this is the only one we like for [name]Charlotte[/name]. I just want it to translate well, if that makes sense.

Our other choice is [name]Samantha[/name], w [name]Sam[/name] or [name]Sammie[/name] as a nn.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Technically, [name]Charlotte[/name] and Carlotte/[name]Carlita[/name] are female variants of the name [name]Charles[/name]… so I don’t think it’ll be awkward for your baby to be nn [name]Carly[/name].

I love [name]Sammie[/name] though. [name]Love[/name] it…

[name]Lottie[/name] is the classic nn for [name]Charlotte[/name]. Another very natural nn would be [name]Charlie[/name]. [name]Carly[/name] is a bit more of a stretch, but if that’s what you want, I think you should go for it!

I think [name]Carly[/name] is definitely a great nn for a [name]Charlotte[/name].

BTW I don’t like [name]Sam/name.
