Carlino Family History
Carlino Name Meaning
Italian: from a diminutive of the personal name Carlo, Italian equivalent of Charles. Carlino was also a term denoting a medieval Italian coin, and it is possible that in some cases the surname arose as a nickname, possibly for a worthless fellow, since it was a coin of low value, or as an occupational name for a moneyer.
