The feminine variation of Charles, Charlotte has been fashionable in Britain since the arrival of Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the 17-year-old bride of British King George III, who reigned during the American Revolution. (The city of Charlotte, North Carolina, is named for her.) Cherished Charlottes include Jane Eyre author Charlotte Brontë, Charlotte from Sex in the City and Charlotte the spider from EB White’s classic Charlotte’s Web. Prince William and Kate Middleton named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana with great fanfare.
