Charnelle is a first name for girls.
Recently, the name Charnelle has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Charnelle. That means that a girl named Charnelle is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Charnelle.
It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Charnelle in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 60 women and girls named Charnelle, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 60 women and girls named Charnelle live in no more than 7 different states, including for example Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and North Carolina. In all other 43 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Charnelle. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Charnelle lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Charnelle and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Charnelle relative to its female population is Florida. And even there, only one in 371,496 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Charnelle.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter C is a frequent initial letter for girls' names. This is because 6.0% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of girls' names, by the way, are A, S and M.
With nine letters, the name Charnelle is relatively long compared to other names. In fact, 5.6% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly nine letters. 92% of all first names are shorter, while not even 2.5% of all boys’ and girls’ names use ten or more letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
That means that with 6.0% of all girls' names that begin with a C, this first letter is much more common than the average of all letters. And which girls’ name beginning with C do you think is the most common in the US? The answer is... Carol.
If your name is Charnelle and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
