1. 人名Carl, Charles 的意思是“男人，丈夫（man, husband）”，与 Carl, Charles 同源的churl 在古英语里指“男人，丈夫，下层自由民，农民”，有意思的是，corn “谷物”也属于同源，Carl, Charles，corn 的共同特点是“成熟”。
- churl (n.)
- Old English ceorl "peasant, freeman, man without rank," from Proto-Germanic *kerlaz, *karlaz (cognates: Old Frisian zerl "man, fellow," Middle Low German kerle, Dutch kerel "freeman of low degree," German Kerl "man, husband," Old Norse karl "old man, man").
It had various meaning in early Middle English, including "man of the common people," "a country man," "husbandman," "free peasant;" by 1300, it meant "bondman, villain," also "fellow of low birth or rude manners." For words for "common man" that acquire an insulting flavor over time, compare boor, villain. In this case, however, the same word also has come to mean "king" in many languages (such as Lithuanian karalius, Czech kral, Polish król) via Charlemagne.
