If Charles means "free man", and Charlotte is a feminine dimunitive of Charles, why does Charlotte mean "little and womanly"?

That's a lot of variations, but I wouldn't want to be called Sharmain.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can
survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
