I love the name Charlotte. It is actually on DH and I's list. Along with Piper which we are leaning towards but still not decided. I want to go with Charlotte Pearl after my great grandma. DH loves the name Shirley, and use Peal as the middle name.
What is your thoughts on the name Shirley? Please be honest. TIA
Honest thoughts on Shirley?
Charlotte is so gorgeous. Use Charlotte!

I personally don't like it. My mom had a cousin Shirley who was older and strange so I don't have the best association.
Charlotte Pearl is a beautiful name and I like Piper but dont love it
Shirley Pearl seems... Off.
IDK, I like Charlotte way better.
Not a fan of Shirley at all. It's an old-lady name to me, and not one of the nicer ones that are coming back in style. Shirley Pearl also doesn't flow, it's too rhymey.
Charlotte Pearl is much better.
It's kind of cute, in its own little quirky, vintage way.
BUT, I don't think that it goes with your boys' names very well at all. Charlotte or Piper would go way better IMO. Or you could use Shirley as a MN - Piper Shirley maybe?

aeh72:There are some "old school" names that are making a comeback think Pearl, think Hazel, etc., but I don't think Shirley will ever be one of those but,nbsp;hey,nbsp;I could be wrong!.nbsp; I don't like it. But, I LOVE Charlotte!
BLPL101:I like Charlotte more, but if I met a baby named Shirley I'd smile.
