As a word in Swedish it means man. Common in hyphenated names such as Karl-Erik, Karl-Johan etc. Most Karls are called Kalle, although I've heard a Karl-Erik being called Kelle.

My father's and grandfather's names are Karl. My name is Karly. I may name my son Karl. I like it. The K looks exotic to me. I hate the look of "Carly" and "Carl". My dad has the nickname Kardo (like kar-doo) and I get Kar. Great names, I recommend them.
