Etymology of the name CHARLOTTE.
Meaning of the baby name CHARLOTTE.

  

CHARLOTTE.  French feminine form of Charles (q.v.), meaning "manly."  Usage: America, England, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Ireland, Scotland, Wales.

... Charlotte d'Albret had the misfortune to be given in marriage to Cesare Borgia, and had one daughter, who married into the house of La Tremouille, whence the brave Lady Derby carried it into England, and our registers of the seventeenth century first acknowledge Charlet.  The Huguenotism of the house of La Tremouille connected it with that of Bouillon, where the heiress Carola, or Charlotte, was married in 1588.  The house of Orange probably thence derived it, and it became known in Germany, whence it was brought to us in full popularity by the good queen of George III.  A (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
