Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles and the name of many Queens in history, including wife of King George III of England, after whom a major city in North Carolina is named. It is also the name of the clever and kind-hearted arachnid heroine of E.B. White’s childhood classic Charlotte’s Web. This name is making a well-deserved comeback in recent years after a long lull in its popularity.
