French form of Cariulphus, which is the latinized form of both Chariulf and its variant form Cariulf.This is one of the names by which the obscure 6th-century Frankish saint Chariulf (often found written as Cariulf) is known in France. He was a disciple of the Frankish missionary and saint Marculf (better known under the French names Marcou, Marcouf and Marcoul), who died either on the same day as he did, or several days afterwards. As a result, they were buried together (along with an other disciple of Marculf's) in the same tomb in the abbey of Nanteuil, which was located in the diocese of Coutances in the Cotentin Peninsula of Normandy.
