If baby is a beacon of joy, let us shine a light on the beautiful Greek name, Charish. A form of Charis, Charish ultimately stems from Charálampos, meaning “shining with joy and happiness.” Charis is also interpreted to mean “kindness” and “grace” and is the name of one of the Charites, also known as the Graces—goddesses of beauty, nature, fertility, and creativity in Greek mythology. Charish may also be a form of the English and French Cherish, meaning “to treasure and care for,” as a promise to baby that you will always be there. A name historically given to both boys and girls, Charish is a versatile choice for parents seeking a gender-neutral title that celebrates all of baby’s wonderful qualities.
