Carl is a cool name. It's NOT geeky by the way.

The name Carl is the best damn name on the planet and should only be given to the elite among men. Not every other loser under the sun. If your name is Carl then dammit you better be cool.

I never actually cared for the name Carl. On a show I used to watch called As Told by Ginger, Ginger's little brother's name is Carl.

This is my brother's name and I think pretty cool. Although it can get annoying because nobody can pronounce it right! It's pronounced: KAH-RUL.

Ugly name. On Jimmy Neutron there is a Carl and he's dumb. Now I think every Carl is dumb. Carl ruined it.

Carl Barat! Formerly in the Libertines and now in Dirty Pretty Things. He's so hot too. :)

Carl Collins, Quentin's brother from Dark Shadows completely destroyed this name for me. Plus it's difficult to say. Carl Kolchak from the Night Stalker is cool though.

I like it better with the German spelling "Karl".

Carl Stamitz was one of the few people to write a viola concerto. As a violist, I really respect him for that. I don't like his name, though - it always struck me as ugly.

Carl Sagan is a wicked holder of this blessed name. Another "scientist" who spread the lies of logic and reason, Carl Sagan a notorious pot smoker, rejected the Lord his savior. A man who used his immense intelligence, declared that the Christian God is not real. Instead he believes that all things, including natural disasters, are natural! Those who listen to him are likely to shout Hail Sagan and follow the devil's commands.

I used to think Carl was kind of a nerdy name because of Jimmy Neutron and other shows. I think a lot of people did. However, when I started watching the TV show Shameless and the boy on it was named Carl, I really started to love the name.

This name would be great to hear on a little boy. It's cute, but serious at the same time. A true classic. In my opinion, names like Carl are far more interesting than Jayden and Hunter. The spelling Karl gives it a little more spunk and pizazz, while Carl is more timeless, similar to Katherine and Catherine :)

Famous bearers include Rick Grimes's zombie-ass kicking son, Carl Grimes from The Walking Dead.

I think this name is so cute! I imagine a happy & friendly person with the name Carl. =)

This is easily my top favorite boy name! It has been for the past few years, and it probably always will be. If I have a son this will be his name. I'm not a big fan of the spelling as Karl though, but I've always been a fan of C over K when it comes to the spelling of names.
LennonDeaconLover96  10/17/2014
I prefer the spelling Karl.
hkols  11/3/2014
I go by this nickname among most of my peers because when I was about to enter high school, a girl decided to shorten my real given name, which happens to be Carlo. There are days when I feel that I have become more of a Carl rather than a Carlo - this may sound bizarre but responding to one has a different feeling as from the other. Like each is burdened by a different set of expectations: Carl is more fun, sociable and clever, while Carlo feels like a more proper, formal and I don't know, kind of distinguished person.

This name sounds like a "stereotypical nerd" kinda name. I don't really like it.

A famous bearer of this name is Charles Delestraint (1879-1945), a French general, member of the French resistance during WW2, he was executed in Dachau by SS.
General Delestraint was from the north of France (the French flanders) so he was called “Carl” (Charles in flemish language).

I find it very hard to imagine a couple in a hospital room, with a baby in their hands saying: "Let's name name him Carl".
