Give baby a world of meanings to be inspired by with the name Char. Typically given to girls, Char is short for Charlotte, Charlene, Charmaine, and Chardonnay, amongst others. Both Charlotte and Charlene can be traced back to the masculine classic Charles, meaning “free man” in German. Deriving from the Ancient Greek term chármion, Charmaine signifies “delight” or “joy.” Chardonnay comes from the French village of the same name, which produces the popular white wine. Perhaps you want baby to be a free-spirited little one with no interest in following the trends. Maybe you wish to describe the pure joy you feel at their arrival. No matter your reasoning, even if it is your love of the chilled drink, Char is a beautiful choice.
