Names of the Week – River & Charlie

riverchralieheader

All month long the names of the week have been unisex names.
Let’s end our Unisex Names month with: River & Charlie

River – River is one of my favorite nature names.  River brings to mind the beautiful image of serene flowing water.  As a name, River reminds me, as I’m sure it does many of you, of the late actor River Jude Phoenix (pictured below).  A popular name amongst celebrity babies, Kelly Clarkson welcomed daughter River Rose last year. River is currently #372 for boys and #588 for girls in the U.S.

Charlie – Charlie is a perfume, a Peanuts character, a nickname, and a great unisex name.  Charlie is a diminutive of the name Charles, meaning “free man”.  When it comes to popularity Charlie is quite even at #233 for boys and #240 for girls in the U.S.  Although Charlie works well as a nickname for Charles or Charlotte, it also works well all on its own.
