English (Northumberland and Durham): habitational name from North Charlton or Charlton near Bellingham (both Northumberland) or from any of the many other places so named (there are over ninety examples in England), from Old English Ceorlatūn ‘settlement (Old English tūn) of the peasants’. Old English ceorl denoted originally a free peasant of the lowest rank, later (but probably already before the Norman conquest) a tenant in pure villeinage, a serf or bondsman.
Irish: altered form of Carlin .
