While Charles sounds like a manly traditional name it has always seemed a bit stiff as in: "Charles the butler", or a man who may be a bit conservative and uptight and/or formal. Overall, though, I am quite satisfied with my name.

Charlie is the best name, every person named Charlie is the best. Except Charlie Manson, he makes a bad name for us all

Have always preferred Chuck. My mom disliked Chuck, said she didn't name me that. I still went by Chuck
