The Judge

The name Karl is, and always has been, a strong and fierce name. Steeped in German and Scandinavian heritage, the name Karl means ‘Man’.

Karl was and is the name of many Swedish royals, including King Karl XVI Gustaf.

Charles is a variation of Karl, as is Carlos and Charlotte. Additionally it reminds me of names Mark, Jack and Eric.
