Germanic in origin, Carl is a masculine name that fits people who aren’t scared to rise above difficulties. Originating from the Germanic word karl, meaning “free man,” the name Carl has a no-nonsense quality to it due to its origins in the Old English word ceorl, meaning “person of low rank.” It has become a well-known title of royalty, nobility, and intellectual elite throughout his life, beginning with the very beginning. In the same vein as C Jung, the father of analytical psychology, this name serves as an uplifting example of the value of striving despite obstacles.
