Charmaine appeared in the early part of the 20th century in the 1924 play What Price by Maxwell Anderson and Laurence Stallings, which was turned into a movie in 1926. A song called "Charmaine" was written for this play. As recorded by Guy Lombardo, this song became popular in 1927. The song was used again in a 1944 movie called Two Girls and a Sailor. The name Charmaine is probably based on the name Charmian, which is Greek for "delight."
