Carline Name Meaning
Probably an altered spelling of Carlin. Americanized form of German Kärlein, perhaps from a diminutive of Middle High German kar ‘bowl’, ‘measure of grain’, ‘depression’, ‘basin’, hence a metonymic occupational name for someone who made bowls or for someone who measured out grain, or a topographic name for someone who lived in a hollow.
