The origin of the distinguished Carlston family can be traced to the historic Scandinavian country of Sweden. The surname Carlston is derived from the Germanic personal name Carl, which means man. This name was very popular in Sweden, where it was the name of several kings, including the current monarch, King Carl XVI Gustaf. The suffix -sson and its variants are translatable as son of.
