Charles, commonly associated in England as being a royal name, derives from the name Karl, which in itself comes from the German word meaning man. The name didnt make its way into Britain until the 17th century, and became introduced as a royal name when Mary Queen of Scots, Mary Stuart, reigned due to her history in France. There are several notable Charles in history, from Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, and English novelist Charles Dickens, who wrote the likes of Tale of Two Cities and Bleak House.
Charles in itself might prove difficult to get onto a registration, but it is possible by cleverly substituting letters for numbers. H can be 11, A can be 4 or a number of others, R can be 2 or 12, L can be I and E can be a 3. For example, CHA 213S, suitable for both Charles and Charlie, sold for just £3,200 in 2003. Otherwise you can use short variations. Maybe Chaz or Chuck?
