Origins Available: German, Irish


The surname Karla is a patronymic, derived from the first name of the father. It comes from the Old German personal name Karl from the Latin Carolus. The name became popular at an early date in France and surrounding territories because of the famed Emperor Charlemagne (ca.741-814). However, the name was mostly only used amongst the nobility and did not spread to the lower classes until the 17th century. At that time it became popular with The Roman Catholic population, due to devotion to Karl Borromaues who was the Cardinal and Archbishop of Mailand. With Romantic movement of the 19th century, the name re-emerged as the lives and names of the ancient knights and kings were glamorized.
