Friday Flashback: ‘Ch’ Is for Charles

For this week’s charabancerie through the cheesy chaff of our charming chums, we’re collecting a selection of stories involving guys named Charles, Charlie, or Chuck. The spur came from looking at the list of top U.S. given names and wondering which ones were most common on the site, and realizing that Charles felt underrepresented compared to William, John, and so forth. That got me curious about where the name showed up in the archives, and, voila, Flashback accomplished.

The next update is a Vignette Party, and it’s tomorrow, 2 October. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives, and thanks for visiting.
