Some children really know what they want – and little Charlotte certainly is one of them.

The five-year-old, who was previously named Charlie Paige, decided that she no longer wanted to be referred to as Charlie.

Her mum Bri, an educator, shared the story of how Charlotte achieved her mission.

The little girl didn’t just ask her family to start calling her Charlotte, she did some research into how she could legally change her name.

The youngster began this mission by writing a convincing letter to her parents.

Mum Bri, from Indiana, shared the letter on TikTok which stated: ‘Charlotte is my passion.’

Charlotte also found from her research that you need around $200 (£143) to make this legal change, and permission from both parents.

So she started selling friendship bracelets (which her mum thought she was selling for a dollar).

Turns out, Charlotte started hustling and raised $150 (£107) towards her goal of a new name.

Bri’s videos of Charlotte have now amassed more than four million views, with many campaigning for Charlotte’s name change.

The mum shared the whole adorable letter in which Charlotte wrote: ‘Dear mommy and daddy, I like it better than Charlie, Charlotte is a girl name and it’s the prettiest name ever. I don’t like Charlie, Charlotte is my passion. Love, Charlie.

‘Charlotte is a better name than Charlie, Charlotte makes me feel strong, Charlotte makes me feel independent, Charlotte makes me feel pretty, Charlotte makes me feel creative and Charlotte makes me feel loved.’

The little girl appealed especially to her dad who gave her the moniker.

She wrote: ‘To dad, I know you don’t want me to change my name, but can we change my name for me please?’

Since the viral attention, the parents did indeed change her name and have been calling their daughter her chosen name.

You go, Charlotte.
