Good name, It is better than Charles, which to me sounds too "royal", with medieval history, or maybe because in Slavic languages Kral / Korol means king - possible from the name Charlemagne (Carolus magnus).

Carlos is a nice name for a character in a romantic novel or movie. It's also a nice name in general. I don't know why I get that impression. There is just something about it, perhaps the sound and meaning, that has a romance narrative.

This is my dad's name. He has a few friends who also have this name so he also goes by Charlie. He sometimes says that he doesn't like it because so many people have that name but I think he is secretly proud. This name is a good solid Spanish name, it's like John. But in Spanish common. But it is still very nice and I like it.

Carlos is also a common name in Portuguese Romances. In "Trips Over my Land", the main character is Carlos and in "Maias" the lead character is Carlos Eduardo. It was also the name of the last portuguese king and the name of a great emperor. It's probably one of the most famous names in Portugal.
