A few months ago someone asked me what the etymology of Carl vs. Karl was. Given that my name is Carl, I was a bit embarrassed that I didn't know. Looking on this site, it appears they both came from Charles (or perhaps Charles came from them...?). Anyone now why there are two different spellings? Are they from different cultures? Or just alternate spellings of the same name?
