Origin of the name Charles:

Charles is derived from the Germanic karl (full-grown, a man), which is a cognate of the Old English ceorl (a man, freeman, peasant). It is a royal name, being borne by ten kings of France as well as by kings of Hungary, Naples, Sardinia, and Wüttemberg. It was introduced to Great Britain by Mary, Queen of Scots (1542 - 87), who bestowed it upon her son, Charles James (1566- 1625). His son and grandson both rules as King Charles, furthering the name's popularity.
