Happy Name Day, Šarlota and Zoe! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Šarlota and Zoe.  Happy name day, Šarlota and Zoe!

The name Zoe is of Greek origin and the meaning of Zoe is "life".

The name Šarlota is the Czech form of Charlotte, which is of French origin and means "little and womanly".  It's the feminine dimunitive of Charles, used in England since the 17th-century, and was made popular in the 19th-century by Queen Charlotte, George III's wife.
