I used the female form. Apparently it means manly one, too. Eeeeekkkk. Carla that is. My ex shrink was called Carl. Carla. Mostly used by Italian women along with Cara.
I like this spelling better than Carl, but I still love the name.
Karl is a handsome, masculine name of Germanic origin that is definitely not feminine under any circumstance! An excellent
name with historic ties to Germany.
Karl Geiger is a German ski jumper. He won a silver medal with the German team at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
I think Karl would make a cute girl name. Technically names don’t have genders except girl names. I also like it spelled Carl too! Carla is just a form of Carl that makes Carl more feminine. Carl is as feminine as it gets sometimes. I think this name should be listed as masculine and feminine like Kyle, Tyler, Ryan, Jordan, and Adrian, since they use boy names on girls, why not use Carl/Karl. I like the name Karl - it's more feminine and Carl is more masculine.

Lots of famous fore bearers, Karl Marx, Karl Jung (who apparently changed the spelling of his name from Carl to Karl), Carl Rogers, Charles Darwin (based on Karl being the germanized form of Charles), Charles Dickins (ibid.), Carl Sagan - which is why I named my son Karl, a.k.a. Kalle; as we are in Sweden :)
Also, can confirm previous comments that Karl in Scandinavian language (Swedish at least) means 'man' or 'guy' - i.e. sayings such as "en bra Karl reder sig själv" meaning a good man takes care of himself... others too but can't think of them now :)
The name Karl is a true classic! It's very masculine, strong and respectable. The meaning of the name Karl perfectly fits any bearer! =)
Karl means 'man' in many Nordic languages (including Swedish and Icelandic) so, therefore, it is one of the most manliest names you can give your child. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it also means 'man' in Old Norse, so because it can be associated with Vikings, and it means 'man', so it is a very, very manly name.
My step dad is named Karl, and he's awesome, so I like this name very much. But I hate it when it's spelled with a C. Karl makes me think of a cool person, Carl makes me think of a computer-geek/hermit. (No offense to anyone who is named Carl, but that's just my impression of it).
