  1. In Afrikaans “kerel” (kêrel) still means “guy, bloke, young man”. Interestingly, where as the original sense of English ‘carl’ (ceorl) was “peasant, ordinary man of low social class” the same source of the word when on to form the word for “king” in other languages mainly influence via the name of the Frankish ruler Charlemagne:
    Hungarian: király
    Lithuanian: karalius
    Polish: król
    Russian: коро́ль ‎(korólʹ)
    Turkish: kral (Ottoman Turkish: قرال)

    A ‘carl-cat’ can look at a king – indeed! 😉
