charlotte

origin: English

meaning: Free

Look for this to be one of the big names in the coming decade or two. Charlotte is feminine without being frilly, sophisticated without being snobby, has the antique vibe that’s so popular these days and a really cute nickname is Lottie. It was in the top 100 from ’08 to ’52, and after dipping for a few decades, just cracked the top 100 once again. It’s jumped 221 spots in the last decade, and we don’t expect the growth to stop anytime soon.

current U.S. popularity rank: 2010: 87
