Origin:German
Popularity:1069
Meaning:free man
The German gender-neutral name Charley means “free man,” and it’s the diminutive of Charles and Charlotte. We know that your little one is a trial-blazer and free spirit, so why not give them a name to remind them of their endless freedom. Whether you prefer the name spelled with an “ey” or an “ie,” this name would be a lovely twist on the classic Charles and Charlotte.
