Meaning:free man
Don’t let the meaning of the name throw you off. Charlee may translate to “free man,” but this alternative Americanized spelling of Charlie is all female thanks to the “–lee” suffix. It was just added to the baby-name charts in 2006, which means it’s still under the radar. If you choose it for your daughter, it’s unlikely teachers or other parents will ever have to refer to your daughter as “Charlee [fill in last name initial here]" to distinguish her from all the other Charlees in class.
