I like Cherish - because that is my name - and I always hear how much everyone likes it

As a name, the English vocabulary word "cherish" meaning "to value greatly; to treasure" was probably first used in the late 19th or early 20th century. Its use may have been influenced by Shari, Cherie, Charity and other similar names. It has reached a high point in its popularity -- as of 2010, Cherish was at #625 in the U.S. top 7,000 baby girls' names, the highest it's ever charted so far.
